    For 13 years, Alanna McCauley has risen at the crack of dawn, battled inclement weather, warded off sickness and shown up at school on time every single day from kindergarten through 12th grade.

    Congratulations. You must be proud. There were likely days where she didn't feel well but made it to school anyway. That shows a lot of determination and drive at a young age. Definately something special.

    That is pretty cool!
    Definitely has her head on straight.
    The article also says that she was an honor student.
    What are her plans for college?

    Very cool, dude!
    And big congrats to her - although I was actually more impressed by the "Honors Student" stuff than the attendance.
    Where's she going to college?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Congrats my friend.
    You must be very proud.

    By the way......

    Nicolini-McCauley, who drove her three daughters to private school in Long Island each day, remembers skidding across Jericho Turnpike during a blizzard.
    Sounds like mom needs some mad props as well.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Congrats to her...and to you for raising such a dedicated student!
    Good luck to her in her further studies!
    Has she chosen a college yet?
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
