Welcome to Keep Connected Live!
I hadn't heard of it. In fact, it wasn't on the front page of Google results when I just googled the name. I had to put in "Milliken school Illinois" for it to show up. So are you saying the kid's gonna die because he's from Hawaii and will have to deal with Illinois winters, or is there something else about this Presbyterian-associated school that young adults should beware of?
Oooooh! Speaking of Decaturs, one of our assistant scoutmasters is going to Decatur, IL in January because his youngest son wants to go to Milliken. I have never known anybody who even HEARD of that school outside IL. Their family is originally from Hawaii. This kid's going to die.
I would email her and say, "There is a national shortage of truck drivers, currently the industry needs about 70,000, and the median pay is almost $60,000/year. If you are that urgently in need of employment I suggest you submit an application to Schneider and JB Hunt. We recommend against taking your previous tact and telling them you have experience. Don't worry, they train. Warmest Regards, Lunamor B. Trippin"
And to make the evening even tougher: I ran into Djivan's mom tonight. She was dropping some things off at the scout hut for Andy while I was outside - I was on my way to take a bottle of water to Quent in the car (he was feeling sick) and there she was. She didn't want to go in because they were doing the Halloween party. We chatted for a few minutes. She cried. She looked like she had lost weight and she was small to begin with. God, that was hard. My heart just breaks for her.
