Reece Graduates – Three Down

This past week, we made the six hour drive down to Sumter, SC to attend the high school graduation of Reece Walker, our son Rhett’s middle child.  There were two events involved with the first one being an awards ceremony where Reece received several honors but a very special one – a four year ROTC scholarship to the University of Tennessee.  After spending most of her life in a military family, she has decided she wants to be a physical therapist in the US Army.

Needless to say, her parents were beyond happy with the size of that check.

The next night was the actual graduation ceremony and here she is with her mom’s parents – didn’t get any with us.

I believe her dad is very pleased that she wants to follow in his footsteps with a hitch in the army and also attend is alma mater for college plus it will be good for her to have us only 40 miles away from UT.

We are now one third of the way through the grands graduations and the next one will be in Texas in 2019.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.


5/20 - 5/23/18 Trip Dates


  1. Wow that is some scholarship check, congratulations.

  2. How exciting for her...she has to be a great student. Congratulations!

  3. Larry, Wow! Good for Reece! Damn...they sure grow up fast don't they?! That's one hell of a scholarship grant! It also shows just how expensive college is these days. I put David II through college from 1987 - 1992 for his Masters Degree in Business (5 years) for the equivalent in today's dollars of 'only' $128,000. It would probably cost $190,000 today based on the 4 year scholarship. Yikes! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. How proud you must be of Reece. She is a very smart young lady.

  5. Wow - that is some check! What a great opportunity for her. Congratulations to all.

  6. Congratulations! Sounds like your granddaughter has a bright future. They sure grow up fast!

  7. Congratulations, Reece! Good for her, knowing what she wants to do. And it will be nice to have her close to you.

  8. How wonderful for her! Congratulations to her on a job well done. I bet you will be so happy to have her nearby soon.

  9. Congratulations to Reese and the whole family. Amazing accomplishment and so exciting to have such a bright future ahead.
