These are the smartest of the smart.  They are graduating seniors with GPAs of at least 3.8, they've earned stacks and stacks of honors, and they are finishing degrees in majors like business administration, biology, and health sciences.

Meanwhile, at work, we're watching giraffes have babies.  We'd better take a break and honor these amazing students before they come after our jobs.

The Top Ten Scholars reception is coming up this Friday, April 21, on the Boise State campus at 4:30pm.  The school says anyone can attend at the Stueckle Sky Center and it's free, but space is limited so you should pre-register.  The students, who were nominated by their academic deans and put through a tough selection process, will be joined by their parents and professors.

These are the amazing, and inspirational Boise State seniors who will be honored at the Top Ten Scholars reception.  Congratulations you guys!  And thanks for being such positive role models for all of us.
