This happened back a month ago, but I failed to post when it happened. But that gave time for it to be on the web where I could link to it...
Cynthia was in the National High School Moot Court Competition. Cynthia advanced through all the rounds. Ended up as one of the four finalists. The other three were Seniors, Cynthia is a Freshman.
This is not the first competition that Cynthia has been in the finals for (or won), and I'm sure it won't be the last. She of course shruggs them all off. And, as her mom mentioned in an email, "This achievement would be greater cause for celebration if Cynthia had any interest in being a lawyer. She doesn't." She was apperantly drafted into the whole effort, and really didn't have a big desire to do it. Of course, she did well anyway. :-)
Anyway, a belated congrats to my sister. I'm jealous! :-)
