As good as we could get!!!
 Receiving her Associates Degrees:
Interior Design with Honors
Business Administration with Honors
Jessica has not received her final grade but it has to be 3.5 or higher to receive Honors.  She only made one C which was in calculus which she struggled with.
We could not be more proud of her and this accomplishment. 

She is already enrolled at The University of Oklahoma in Norman to pursue her Interior Design Degree beginning August 28th.

Our gift box to her

The note in the top of the box reads:

For your graduation with your
Associates Degrees from TCC 
I wanted to give you something
That belonged to me.

The turquoise nugget necklace
I have had since I was 16 years
Old.  That would make it 58
Years old.  The little ring was
Given to me in 1984 by your
Grandfather Mickey. 
We are so very proud of you
And you are loved very much
By us.

Grandma & Grandpa Joyce

The necklace is 10 turquoise nuggets with silver chain.  The ring is a 12 carat gold heart with diamond chips (the ring does not show up very well in the picture)

Wonderful accomplishment by a very wonderful grand daughter.
