LOL--dang momma, I was just asking--not trying to be nasty. I am guessing this is similar to the "cotillion."

They're being honored for

They're being honored for being outstanding young people, who not only have already accomplished something in their short lives but are on-course for making a difference in the greater scheme of things. Go back and do a search on some of their names why don't you, Momma, instead of just spouting your snarky venom. Why don't you try to produce a star student yourself, Momma? Think you've got what it takes to guide a human being into being the kind person that is any of these six? Unlikely. If it weren't for people like these, Augusta would be just like Sardis, or some other dried up little community, or like a smaller version of Detroit, being cannibalized by ignorant, violent, dependent criminals. We live in an advanced, humane civilization because of people like these, but I'm not sure that the blinders of your self-destructive class envy allow you to see anything so clear and simple.

Fiat_Lux--please do not have a stroke. The article was very vague. I am sure these young people are well deserving and achieved every thing without help from anyone.

No stroke in the offing, DTJ,

No stroke in the offing, DTJ, and no, these kids didn't achieve everything on their own. They had a lot of people in their lives inspiring, leading, teaching, correcting, supporting and cheering them. The difference is that they took advantage of their opportunities instead of spitting on them and being too cool to excel.

Fiat_Lux, I still contend the article is vague. I do know people who have achieved without the opportunities you mentioned. I hope they are successful and give back to this community--we desperately need it. I do disagree with your notion that this type of thing is what makes Augusta better than places like Sardis--this seems very narrow minded. Who gives a crap who someone's "daddy" is? This is 2010--why can't we move past this and focus on who the individual is? And no, I didn't need to Google the names because I have lived here all my life. The amount of inter-marrying in this town is concerning at times--just sayin'.

Not really a nerve either,

Not really a nerve either, DTJ. Just sick of people like Momma taking pot shots at decent, kind, civilized people like these kids, people who are forces for good instead of social drains, especially when it comes from envy and without any personal knowledge. What I know about you is that you like to speculate about people's motives and somehow have the impression that you possess superior insight. And, BTW, there really is such a things as being entitled to recognition and respect, whether you agree or not. The word wasn't always used with sarcasm or applied to losers.

They are outstanding young people? I thought they were just kids attending a party. It's a social club, not an awards ceremony.

I somewhat agree with corgimom on this one. I always wondered what they meant exactly by "honored". Is there something specific they have been honored for? Or is being "honored" in this way just an unearned perk that comes along with privilege?
