Sh’Niya Amani Paulin
Recipient of the 2020
Dr. Donna B. Huger,
Sagacious Youth Life, LLC Scholarship

I am extremely proud to announce the first recipient of the Dr. Donna B. Huger, Sagacious Youth Life, LLC Scholarship. Sh’Niya, a native of Lane, SC is the daughter of Alma and Damon Paulin, and the sibling of Devin and Princeton Paulin. She attributes her family for inspiring her to strive for greatness, and for strengthening her belief that she can be anything she chooses in life.

Sh’Niya plans to major in Exercise Science at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. Her future plan is to become a Physical Therapist. She looks forward to contributing to improve the daily lives of others through her chosen profession.

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the scholarship fund. The Dr. Donna B. Huger, Sagacious Youth Life, LLC Scholarship was funded partially from funds of those who graciously purchased my book, Sagacious Doves: A Guide to Graciously Inventing and Realizing Life Sagaciously.

I am so very proud of Sh’Niya and her accomplishments. She completed almost a year of College Dual Credit courses while at C.E. Murray and has maintained a strong academic course of study and grade point average. I have no doubt that she was meant to be the recipient of this scholarship.

Sh’Niya, “The Best is Yet to Come!”
You are a Sagacious Dove!

ALWAYS GRATEFUL!

I use the above phase daily, no matter what circumstances I encounter. I have come to realize that no matter what, there is always something to be grateful for. The month of January proved to give me so much, that the phase is what I have been saying almost hourly. I have the fortunate honor to be not only named the South Carolina High School Counselor of the Year, but the South Carolina Counselor of the Year! I have been blessed and favored with talents, one of which is being a High School Counselor for 20 years, and especially spending most of those years as a Director and leader, developing comprehensive School Counseling programs that are effective in addressing the academic, personal/social and career needs of students. I am grateful that I get to do what I love Everyday! To be honored by your peers is one of the most rewarding experiences there is! I end, as I began,

ALWAYS GRATEFUL!

My Sagacious Marine!

The phrase, “This happened and it is bad”
is actually two impressions:

“This happened” is objective.

“It is bad” is subjective.

To solve this dilemma, I say, “Amor Fati!”

Love Everything that Happens!

Thirty-five years ago, I gave birth to this amazing, healthy, and lively baby boy after being hospitalized for seven months.
He was a survivor then, and he is a survivor now.

Today he serves our country as one of The Few & one of The Proud!
He has deployed 3 times and continues to inspire others to be the best
they can be.
He is a loving father and a joy to be around!

I cannot be more proud to call you son!

Happy 35th Birthday Staff Sgt. Huger!
