10 Groundhog Day Scholarships

In case you didn’t know, today is Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil will be making his annual appearance and letting the world know whether we will be in for more cold weather or an early spring. Let’s hope it’s the latter. But, “Groundhog Day” is also one of my favorite Bill Murray movies.

I’ve listed several of them right here.
