President, Tre' Thorne! The Thorne "presidential" legacy continues - like
Father, like Sister. From the first day of school this year, this was Tre's
goal. He decided that if he was going to get the job, he should dress and act as
if he had the job. That's how he carried himself all year and it paid off. Doug
Thorne and I are so proud of him! Also, this year the candidates submitted
videos of their "speeches" and this is what Tre' published to win over
supporters - Tre's Presidential Campaign Enjoy!.
It's Official! Our first-born
is a college student! Sydney just completed freshman orientation at High Point
University this weekend, has her student ID, fall schedule, and dorm assignment!
She even had an opportunity to meet the university president, Dr. Nido Qubein
Friday night. The Thorne household is bursting with excitement as she prepares
for her extraordinary education at HPU!
To all of our
Aggie friends, do not be disheartened. Even though she will be wearing a lot of
purple, she has blue and gold coursing through her veins and she's still close
enough to go to GHOE, etc! 🙂

The Woman I Am
a woman I am a courageous woman
stand where others fear to tread
is I who wears a smile when others accept a frown
smile because I see goodness even in this world of turmoil
say a kind word to those around me
find it unnecessary to put others down
a woman I am a compassionate woman
embrace when others turn to hate
wear an armor of many roles
mother, sister, aunt and friend who soothes the hurts of others
patient when others move around from place to place
stand still while others go about in haste and waste
reflect on the past
know how nice it is to have pleasant memories that last
a woman I accept different people
know differences enrich our lives
a woman I am a passionate woman
love from the miracle of birth to the sunset of aging

Coming into high school, Chandler Robinson had not played much basketball.
She had to be convinced to give it a shot during her freshman year at Atkins.
I was told I should try out because of my height and that I would be a good addition to the team,” Robinson said.
“So I tried out, made it, and am really enjoying it.”
Coach Louis Lowery has seen lots of progress in the junior’s game since she joined the team as a freshman.
“She’s 6-1 and lengthy, so she really causes problems with her size getting steals, blocks, and rebounds,” Lowery said.
“She’s still learning in some areas, but she’s getting better every year and has a lot of potential.”
Lowery said that part of the reason Robinson has come so far over the last few years is her intelligence and attitude toward success.
“Chandler’s a great kid,” Lowery said. “She’s very smart, learns very fast, and has a great attitude.
With that combination, she’s going to be very successful. We will definitely look to her to be more of a leader next year.”
Robinson, who also played volleyball for Atkins this fall, says one of her favorite parts about playing basketball is the camaraderie with her teammates.
“My favorite part of basketball is my teammates and the way we all came together,” Robinson said.
“They’re fun to be around and we like to hang out together off the court, too.”
Robinson is already looking towards her future after graduating from high school.
“I would like to go to either Western Carolina or the University of Tennessee,” Robinson said.
“I want to be a forensic anthropologist and both of those schools have body farms on site which is why they interest me.”
This fall marks 5 years since Dad (John) died
from lung cancer. This November I will run the
Philadelphia marathon in
his memory. The Lung Cancer Alliance is one of the charity partners for the race
and I have set a goal of raising $1,310 ($50 per mile) for them. This is one of
the only charities that focuses solely on lung cancer and I know Dad was
supportive of their work.
