Phi Beta Kappa and JFM

This weekend, my little brother was inducted in to the oldest honors society in the country - Phi Beta Kappa.  Approximately 1 in 100 college students are invited to join.   Notable members include: John Quincy Adams, Eli Whitney, Samuel Morse, Nathanael Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John D Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, John Updike, Gloria Steinem, George HW Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Theodore Roosevelt, George Stephanopoulos.... and Joseph Maloney.  

(Proud sister much? Yes).

Anyway, I was thrilled to witness the ceremony.  I know how hard Joe worked during college, and I'm thrilled that his hard work paid off.  Tomorrow he graduates with a degree in Economics, and I am so proud of him and humbled by him.  Something tells me that I'll be bragging "I'm Joe Maloney's sister" for years to come.
