Rosemary's Trophy

This a trophy from the 1920's. My grandmother, Rosemary, did not have much as a child. She loved school and learning new things. She was a woman ahead of her time. This is an academic trophy that she won as a senior in HS that also came with a scholarship to Indiana University. She was a smart girl, and made her parents very proud! I love this trophy, because it symbolizes a turning point in her life.
