Today I recruited several students to come outside and pose on the lawn. I provided a beach towel to protect them from the wet, and they provided me with smiles and enthusiasm. I particularly want to mention the very game young man on the right, named Jordan. This was Jordan's very first day as a Southeast student. He had just signed up for his freshman classes and was waiting to see the financial aid director when I approached him. Confronted by this unfamiliar (and also strange) dumpy middle aged lady in paint spattered overalls, he cheerfully left the building to pose. I predict that Jordan has a great college career ahead of him!
So here we are. I have completed everything that I can until the plaque is installed (I hope soon). Every inch of the mural has been filled in except for the area on the bottom left where the plaque will go. So now I wait.
