Subject: [PNLHmembers] Liberty received history award
Thought the group would like to know that, in the senior awards ceremony at her high school, Liberty received the:Omaha Woodmen
Life Insurance Society
in American History
It came as a complete surprise to her and what's funny is that the presenter is apparently notorious in the area for being a cantankerous and unpredictable. As this gentleman with long gray beard and long gray hair rolled out in his wheelchair and appropriated the microphone, he commented that they know he's not going to pay attention to the time limit and launched into a story. At this point Liberty thought, "If I were to get any award I'd want to get it from him." (I don't think she even knew which award was being presented at this point.) Despite his attention-getting warning, he didn't really go much over time but certainly enlivened the event - and Liberty was flabbergasted when he announced her name as the recipient.
Not an award that came with any money, but she got a nice plaque and, probably most thrilling for her, the distinction of having by far the coolest presenter.
