SG2 still wows us all

It's not easy to grow up in the shadow of a sibling who's smart, talented, etc. (I know!) But Supergirl 2, who, following graduation became known as Phi Beta Kim, has continued to impress us all. After teaching for two years, first in a high school then an elementary school, she applied for -- and got -- an incredible scholarship from the Rotary Club.

She was one of just a few students chosen out of, I believe, 50,000 or so applicants. She was offered the chance to study in England, Ireland or Australia. We were all hoping for the former because visiting her would be so much easier.

SG2 decided to be pro-active: she applied to the University of Manchester and of course was accepted, then got the approval of the Rotary Club, so she's all set for next year. And by the way, through this program she can get a Master's Degree... in just one year!

Congrats to SG2! She's beautiful, too, and I bet she has as much inner beauty.

Yes, she is kind, funny, big-hearted and more. It's wonderful to see her get such a terrific honor.
