He's in! He's in!

Remember our disappointment when we found out Marcel had not been accepted into the education program? Well, we got good news today. They found a spot for him!

It seems a little coaxing (I wrote a letter to the university expressing our disappointment and Marcel wrote a letter to the admissions committee asking for an opportunity to appeal the decision in person) went a long way, because a spot seems to have opened up. A little perseverance goes a long way now and then!

In September, it will be back to the books again for him. And in two years, some lucky high school students will learn history from a man who's passionate about it and who cares about their future.

(Thanks Gina for the inspiration! Your story encouraged us to persevere. :-)
