Next Wednesday, UCC has their annual Outstanding Student Reception. I was able to nominate the outstanding writing student for the year--my student KL.
He's a nontraditional student, and he's a fantastic writer. He's lived a ridiculously full, crazy, enviable life, and his journal writing last term was hysterical, incisive and peerless. Additionally, his academic writing is accomplished, stylistically unique and always interesting. Regardless, I have to write up a little paragraph about him and present him with a certificate. :)
I'm excited--and I was certain that KL would roll his eyes in his head when I told him about it, but he seemed excited, too.
So it should be a nice little afternoon thing. I'll post a picture if I have one taken! :)
