This morning I was privileged to watch 88 young scholars receive $133,000 in scholarships from the neighbors and businesses in Irving at the Irving Schools Foundation annual Breakfast With the Stars event. For the sixth year in a row, WFAA anchor John McCaa served as emcee and did a great job. And for the sixth year in a row, I was impressed with the intelligence, poise and work ethic of the young people honored. As McCaa said in his opening remarks (before reading 90+ pages of student intros) this is an event to look forward to every year because it gives the audience hope for the future of our nation. If the rest of the Millennium Generation is as personable, mature, bright and industrious as the teenagers at the Four Seasons this morning, we’re in good hands.
