Hey Kids it’s Dad and for today’s Tommy log I want to talk to you about Clara’s senior scholarship dinner. Every year Little chute high school, and Little Chute Career Pathways Academy have an end of the year scholarship dinner. This year’s dinner was amazing. There were over 70 scholarships given out during the 3 hour program. Scholarships ranging from $250 all the way up to full four-year ride scholarships were given out. Clara walked away with seven scholarships. What an amazing proud Dad moment.

Congratulations Clara and congratulations to all the award winners. What an all star group and and remember kids that hard work pays off!!

Today I want to focus on serving others and following the amazing example of Clara who is away at MDA camp. This made me think on how much better the world would be if we just put others first!

This week Clara was inducted into the Little Chute chapter of the National Honor Society. I am so proud of her amazing accomplishment. I started thinking about the 4 pillars of the NHS, Character, Leadership, Scholarship and Service and how each of the kids shares these qualities.

Madeline, Tommy, Emma and Drew, like their sister Clara all posses similar qualities. I love you all and Congrats again Clara!

TommyLog – Strong Work Ethic

Ok kids, for today’s TommyLog I want to first congratulate Clara on getting her first job. How exciting is that?!?! I could nto be more proud of her and her accomplishments. I actually am very proud of all my kids and everything they have accomplished.

When I was 12 years old I got a job a a newspaper carrier for the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle early morning newspaper. With the exception of a time while a freshman at college and my full time mission, I have been gainfully employed ever since.

Which leads me to talk about strong work ethic and how blessed I am that Clifford kids have such a great work ethic.
