Jade Wagner....our niece on Matt's side....we are so very proud of Jade, she is getting ready to start Graduate School this fall at Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Jade has spent the past 4 years studying abroad in Australia, Italy, New Zealand, France...and many other countries. This girl knows where she is going and nothing will stop her! We are so proud of her...Jade lost her little brother Jarrett in a dirtbike accident in 2000, he was 8 at the time and would be a senior this year. Jade has dealt with alot....after her brother's death, her parents soon divorced. More determined than ever...she kept her grades up and off to Ball State she headed where she took advantage of every study abroad program offered. She has worked her way through college and just bought this brand new Mini Cooper all on her own. Her mother and I always laugh....Jade will NEVER need a man to take care of her...she's got it going on!!! Her dream is to work with Universities all over the USA developing Study Abroad Programs....what ever she wants to do...Jade will do it! Go Jade!
