Congratulations Kaicey!

Kaicey WeberThis week I would like to put a spotlight on Kaicey Weber, the recipient of the 2014 Roy H. Yelton Scholarship. Every year when scholarship applications start to roll in we look for students with a strong academic history, a great spirit and meaningful goals. As an all-around stand up student, Kaicey certainly fit the bill and we couldn’t be more excited to contribute to her future.

Throughout her high school career Kaicey proved that she was both smart and passionate, staying actively involved in the National Honor Society and Student Goverment. Along with making her mark inside of the classroom, she has also placed a high priority on giving back to her surrounding community. She spends countless hours volunteering at her church and loves spending time with kids. When we asked Kaicey what she had in common with Mr. Yelton she said, “I try my best to be caring and empathetic to everyone around me.”

As a recent graduate of Lakota East, this fall Kaicey is off to Miami University to study Psychology and Chemistry. For many high school graduates heading off to college is a big enough bite to swallow, but for Kaicey, it doesn’t stop there. Following her undergraduate program she plans to apply to graduate school to become a Childs Advocate Lawyer or to pursue a career in Pediatric Medicine.

Congratulations Kaicey! Everyone at Yelton’s is rooting for you.

Graduation Gift Guide

Spring is in the air. The temperatures are finally starting to rise. My kids are itching to play outside. And, graduation season is in full swing. It’s a special time all around and I’m not going to lie, I’m happy to kiss winter goodbye. If you know someone graduating from high school or college, you may be on the search for the perfect gift. Well, have no fear; The Jeweler’s Wife is here.

When I’m shopping for new grads I’m always on the hunt for something that they can cherish. Something that reminds them of their accomplishments. Something that will last a lifetime. And, naturally, my mind gravitates to jewelry. Can you blame me?

For all of those on the search for the perfect graduation gift this spring, done some of the homework for you. Check it out, The Jeweler’s Wife graduation gift guide:

Watches: Timepieces make a great gift for him or her. Right now, I especially like the Tissot collection. They’re super stylish and perfect for the grad that doesn’t want to be late to class or work!

Charm Bracelets: If you’re looking for a great gift that tells the unique story of your favorite grad, consider a modern day charm bracelet. I love the idea of giving something that they can add to over time, highlighting life milestones to come. Here are some of my top picks:

Diamonds: I know it’s cliché, but diamonds really are forever. Send your new grad off into the world with a beautiful diamond bracelet or their first pair of diamond stud earrings.

Pearls: As the oldest known gem out there, pearls are both timeless and classy. Not to mention, they’ve come along way since the classic strand of pearls. With so many great designs out there today, you’re sure to find something your grad will love, no matter what their style.

If you have any questions on the gifts above or want to pick my brain for more suggestions, don’t hesitate to reach out. And, most importantly, I’d like to extend congratulations to all of our local graduates. Everyone here at Yelton’s is proud of you!
