How much should aunts and uncles dole out to a 2019 college graduate? $100, maybe $200. Best thing to do is ask someone who’s about to graduate. When it’s your niece, it’s a joy to share.
Here’s my radio chat with Addie Meiners, the next media superstar.
What a delight to broadcast from Keeneland Race Course and run into not one – but two! – of my sweet nieces. I held both of these girls just hours after they were born and have loved them dearly their entire lives.
Addie Meiners (daughter of my brother Mike) will graduate from the University of Kentucky in May and is already an accomplished sports broadcaster. She’s done radio and television shows, and made stadium announcements on the Jumbotrons at UK’s Kroger Field in front of 60,000+ fans.
Lauren Russell Konen (daughter of my sister Denise Russell) is a respected nurse practitioner and mother to two incredible babies. Lauren is the same tender soul and family leader she’s been since childhood.
Family. Nothing better.
