“I refuse to do it! I don’t care who her father is, her grades don’t even begin to compare to Martha’s. I won’t lie or falsify5 records. Martha has a straight A-plus average and you know it.” That was Mr. Schmidt
“Martha,” he said, “there’s been a change in policy this year regarding the scholarship jacket. As you know, it has always been free.” He cleared his throat and continued. “This year the Board has decided to charge fifteen dollars, which still won’t cover the complete cost of the jacket.”
It's not a scholarship jacket if you have to pay for it, I'm not paying.
I know, sir, but he said if I had to pay for it, then it wouldn’t be a scholarship jacket.” I stood up to leave. “I guess you’ll just have to give it to Joann.”
“Martha—wait.”.........“Okay. We’ll make an exception in your case. I’ll tell the Board, you’ll get your jacket.”
