Josh Watkins making Kuna proud
It has been fun receiving updates on Kuna graduate Josh Watkins, who is a leading member on the Boise State University Talkin’ Broncos forensics team.
I first wrote about Josh in October 2008, when he and Will Eichelberger were named Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Too often, we send our graduates out into the real world and we never hear what becomes of them. But after Josh enrolled at BSU, I started receiving press releases from BSU about the Talkin' Broncos team, and I spotted Josh's name on the list. Over the past couple of years, we've seen Josh's star rise, culminating in last week's announcement that Josh, now a junior at BSU, has been awarded the Northwest Forensics Conference Coaches Commemorative Trophy, recognizing the single most successful competitor in the conference this season.
Congratulations to Josh for doing such a great job.
And by the way, keep an eye out for another Talkin' Bronco from Kuna, Jessica Gresl, who is also racking up awards.
