Times have certainly changed.

When I was given my award, it came with a handshake and "Good luck, son."
My daughter's same award was attached to a $40,000 merit scholarship.
Later, she also won another merit scholarship for $35,000.
After 4 years of college, she grabbed another $32,000 science merit scholarship for graduate school.
Talk about a kid paying her own way.
