My Monmouth College Moment would be the day I was inducted into the Monmouth College Hall of Fame. I had just given birth to my second son, Cole, on Sunday, Oct. 2, 1994. The Hall of Fame inductions were to be that next Saturday. I wasn't sure if I was going to be up to attending, but my Mom and Dad got us all over there for this big event.
As I was being honored for my achievements in volleyball and softball during my four years at Monmouth, I looked at the back row where my parents were sitting. I saw them taking care of Jared (1 1/2 years old) and Cole. They were the reason I had been able to attend Monmouth College to pursue my education and my sports. They were also the reason I was able to get to Monmouth for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Just as they supported me, I hope to support Jared and Cole in their respective sports careers at Lewis University and Monmouth College. Who dreamt that Cole would eventually choose to attend Monmouth College? You will see him on the tennis courts during the next four years. I am proud to be a Monmouth Fighting Scot!
