Eric Made the First Cut

Most of you know that Eric applied to the Olmstead Scholar Program which sends a handful of military men/women to language school for a year then to the corresponding country for two years to take college classes. Well, Eric found out yesterday that he did make the first cut. He knows two other people from Nellis that applied that did not make it. He doesn't know of anyone that has made the cut other than himself so far. We aren't sure how big the initial list is, but it is pretty exciting. The next step will be for Eric will be a personal interview on the east coast with the Olmstead Scholar Program. I don't know what the odds are that he'll make it from here, but I think we have a good chance. I'm not sure when the interview is, but it has to be before March. That's when we'll know if we'll be going to Monterey, California or not for language school. If we do end up getting it...we'll be moving in June!
I'm a little nervous, maybe because of all the uncertainty that revolves around it. But, I'm excited for Eric as well because he really wants this. I'll let you know when the interview is so you can keep Eric in your prayers!
