As we move into spring - I'm watching my little sister Kim move through one of the most interesting parts of her life - the last few months of graduate school. After graduating from Manhattan College Kim spent a year teaching physical education at a grammar school in Manhattan. During that time - she decided that her true calling was social work - and entered Fordham University's graduate program, working towards an MSW - a Masters in social work. Now she's nearly done and she's looking for jobs and I'm just sort of blown away by her. In our family Kim gets teased sometimes for being the "blonde" and for asking the occassional silly question - but the truth is - she's got us all over a barrell now. Once Kim has a master's degree - she will have the most education that any Stevens/Kearns person has ever had - probably ever. It's a hell of a feat - and Kim, I'd like to be the first one to say - congratulations. I am so proud of you.
