So my trip home found me spending most of my time not in my home town but in the town I spent 4 years of my life, learning and growing and becoming part of the person I am today. J-Day at Judson is probably similar to what most colleges would have for Homecoming. Reunions are held. Meetings are held. Awards are given away. I, personally, was hoping for the "traveled furthest distance" award but alas, I was beaten out by someone from Los Angeles. However, if there had been an award for traveled furthest distance and pregnant, that would have gone to your's truly. (By the way, it is 708 miles from my house in Texas to Bibb Street in Marion, Alabama where Judson is located.) My aunt, Carol, was given the Alumnae Loyalty Award for her work and dedication to the school over the years. You will notice in the article that my mom also attended Judson so the Judson tradition is pretty strong in my family.
The weekend in Marion was great. Sometimes I forget how much I enjoyed my time at Judson and I regret that I didn't appreciate it more while I was there. I was able to see my two former suite mates (and two of my closest friends) as well as many other people I knew when went to school there. We also had a lot of my family come up for the awards banquet to honor my aunt. Here is a picture of most of my family who attended the banquet.
