For this week’s Happy Friday, we are celebrating two of our amazing team members who recently graduated from college. 🎉🎓 After 12 long years of high school and 4 years of college, Shane and Kaitlyn, two of our newest team members, have earned the right to kick up their heels and celebrate. Congratulations, your hard work has paid off!!!

Meet Shane…

Shane is a new member of our awesome affiliate team here at Hip2Save. He loves all things LEGO, Star Wars, and Sponge Bob – yeah he’s one cool dude! 🙌🏻 He graduated Magna Cum Laude earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Communication AND an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts from Lewis-Clark State College.

Meet Kaitlyn…

Kaitlyn is the newest member of our Evergreen team and recently graduated on the Dean’s List from St. John’s University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. She’s an avid traveler with a passion for cooking, the beach, makeup, journaling, and all things Disney! We are so lucky to have Kaitlyn and Shane on our team.

It’s back to school time!

While Shane and Kaitlyn are starting the next chapter in their lives, many of us sent our kiddos back to school this week. How cute are Lina’s kids in their back-to-school photo above? I feel like we’ve watched them grown up right here on Hip2Save, time sure does fly.

My daughter also headed back to school this week and is a senior in high school, and OMG how did that happen? It seems like it happened so fast in many ways. She’s in color guard with the marching band and is a member of the leadership team, so this week has been very busy with school and practice every day. I’m so proud of her!

We’re now looking at colleges and she is trying to decide where she would like to go and what she would like to study. So many decisions to be made over the next year!
