Phi Delta Phi

Just wanted to give everyone an academic update on Jeremy. I know that he doesn't always share his accomplishments, but he has done really well and I am proud of him.

First, Jeremy made the Dean's List for the fall 2008 semester. Because he ranked in the top quarter of his class for that semester.

Second, on Friday night Jeremy was Initiated into The International Legal Fraternity of
Phi Delta Phi.

The ceremony was held at the State Capitol Building in the House of Representatives.

* Sorry this last picture is so dark. For some reason our camera decided it no longer wanted to take good pictures. I tried every setting, to no avail. I was very sad that out of 30+ pictures, I only had 1 from the actual ceremony. Not a moment we wish to miss! I even had my friend Christine look at it to see if there was anything she coud do to make the picture better. She was able to make it a little bit lighter just so I had something I could post here for all of you to see.
I guess a new camera is next on the list to buy.
Third, he was selected to join the William J. Holloway, Jr., American Inn of Court CV.

The following is taken from the
American Inns of Court Web site. This is one of the best one-on-one ways to create professional networking relationships:

The American Inns of Court, America's oldest, largest and fastest growing legal mentoring organization is firmly rooted in the noble 800-year-old tradition of the Inns of Court in England.
