Yesterday was the Albright Honors and Awards Banquet they hold every year to recognize students and their achievements over the past year. I was fortunate enough to be invited this year to the event and loved every minute of it! I received two award last night. The first was a new award called the Music Business Leadership Award. The Music Business Department didn't even have this award but they decided to create it so I could be honored at this event for all the stuff I've done over the past four years for the department. It was so nice to see that they didnt want me to leave without being recognized and I was extremely flattered that they would even create an award after?! Crazy right! How many people can say "O yea they just created a new award for me" lol
The second award I received was actually a complete surprise to me. I received an Albright Golden A Award!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Golden A award is given to students who have left their mark on Albright's Campus and have been dedicated to Albright over their four years here. This is the story I thought I'd share with you! First off, because I really didn't think I was getting one I was barely paying attention to the awards speeches they give as they get ready to announce the recipients. It's a speech written by Dr. Pankratz (the man incharge!) describing the student. When my name was called I had a pretty confused look on my face like did that just really happen? and all I remember is my parents, friends and teacher in my section cheering as I went up to receive 1 of 8 Golden A's presented that evening!
I'm really excited about receiving a Golden A and wanted to share another great tid bit about the 8 award recipients.....WE WERE ALL ALBRIGHT AMBASSADORS & FACES!!!!!!! I thought that part was kind of crazy and amazing. I want to congratulate all the award recipients so here it goes: Sara Parson, Brittany McLaughlin, Andre Forbes, Andrew Gibout, Simon Foster, Mr. T, and Mallory Olsheski CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You all deserve this award and I'm so proud to be among all of you. I can't believe we did it! lol Enjoy your awards because I can't think of a better group of recipients <3
And as per usual it wouldn't be my blog if I didn't attach some photos lol so enjoy :D
