THE STORY:

If you have had the pleasure of meeting Chelda Smith, chances are you walked away thinking, "Wow, there goes an awesome human being." She's the type of person, that walk's in God's favor, so you think I don't have to worry about her, of course she'll be just fine. Well, I'm sure you know that in 'real life', we all have something to worry about and we all have those moments, days, weeks, months, ..., when things seem impossible. So yes, Chelda is a brilliant, beautiful, kind, caring, hardworking, ambitious, savvy, mother, daughter, friend. But the truth is, it doesn't just happen for her, she works hard at it, daily. As a result, she stands to graduate this May 15th, 2014 from the University of Minnesota with a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction. Also, FYI: She's a rising scholar in her field and is engaged in ground breaking work.

To those of you who have proof read the papers and essays, given a recommendation letter, put her up while she was in town, got on a plane to go visit, help her get away for mini vacations, baby sat Truth, consoled, encouraged and prayed for her ... She's almost there guys, Amen!

So, when it is all said and done, she plans to head back south. Clearly, Chelda has a lot on her plate right now, what a helpful graduation gift it would be for us to come together and get her there.

It's a surprise, so Shhhhh! Just give what you can and more importantly leave her a warm message of your heart felt congratulations. For those of you who still want to get her a card, gift card or... If you don't have it, I can get you her address. Email me: tashibanelson@hotmail.com.

Thank you all so much! Let's show Dr. Smith how proud we are!

You are awesome and amazing. You have been an awesome to those you encounter. You're an ideal mother, well rounded individual and a virtuous woman. You're such a motivation to Tashiba and I find that there are very few people that can move her. Through her I have known you as an awesome individual and her girl crush. :-) 4 years ago
