Default Gracie's Wonderful Granddaughter

Hi y'all,

You might know that GG's talented granddaughter, Graylyn Roose, earned a coveted student internship on the Today Show. Here's an article in the Ohio University Scripps College of Communication newsletter about the program and the academic excellence of the interns:

I see a bright future on the horizon. Congratulations to Gracie, Sweetie and Graylyn!!

Thanks for posting this P:


Fall in New York is a wonderful time of year.

My wish for Graylyn is to learn a lot and have an exciting career.

You must be busting buttons with pride.

Best wishes to your family.

Congratulations, Gracie, how exciting for your granddaughter and your family!

By the way, she is also a very pretty young lady, and I can see her resemblance to you.

Graciegirl, I want to thank Graylyn for her hard work and you for passing along such great genes. But I especially want to thank you both for providing this inspiring story in view that so many about our young people are so negative. finally I want to thank Pturner for bring this to our attention. We need more of this..................

Gracie, I'll echo all of the kudos above. Ohio University has one of the top journalism programs in the country and to be selected as an intern for the Today show is an extraordinary opportunity. Let me know when she is in the city - perhaps I can see her.
