STPA is a good school because of its academic curriculum and courses. Also at STPA you will find teachers who have a passion for teaching and strive to push their students to success. I’m writing this letter for you to learn more about my school and so that I can soon learn about you and your school too! STPA is located in a city south of the Mexican border, called Edinburg, TX. During school, I am in Spirit Club.
The kids compete with other teams and have a blast while doing it. I was introduced to Special Olympics through NHS. I am now an Adaptive Partner and work with the athletes in my school. I have gone sledding, snowshoeing, ice fishing,and played basketball with these kids. I have made a lot of new friends and memories through Special Olympics.
We held events such as Asian Heritage Month and Black History Month. Throughout these clubs, my team and I held many different events where I gathered a lot of valuable lessons. The Me to We club and I had held a fundraiser at our school to sell Rafikis and all the proceeds went to the We organization. The social justice club and I held many assemblies where I got a chance to speak in front of the whole school on things I was passionate about such as getting aboriginals the right of proper education and the "We Are Silent" movement. I will bring my past experiences of holding assemblies, fund raisers, festivals and such other things to raise awareness to John Fraser and help out in any which way I can.
I have gone to school in Elcho my whole life. Elcho has given me countless chances to participate in everything. As a current member of student council, Students against destructive decisions ( SADD), Forensics, Cheerleading, and Golf, I value these opportunities. Extra curricular activities have taught me to be responsible, work with a team, and untimely made my highschool career one to remember. Being so involved in high school has forced me to be responsible.

Throughout high school, I have involved myself with various activities, both curricular and extracurricular. As a member of National Honor Society (NHS), I participate in numerous public service events. Some of which include volunteering at Springdale’s annual Strawberry Festival, Senior Citizen Brunch and Street Fair amongst a variety of school functions such as Education Celebration and our recent Job Fair. Through NHS, I also tutor other students in the High School as well as students of any age in the district at the Springdale Public Library. Outside from NHS, I have volunteered at a variety of places.
The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis. Our activities incite fun competition and a sense of accomplishment for our members and students affiliated with us. This provides for us a very comfortable environment in which students can be themselves and do what they love. Our Student Council, aside from offering our own physical service to our school and community, also helps other organizations with their events. We are the go-to group in the building.
During my high school years I have worked at Little Caesars. I fulfilled my community service hours by attending the NJROTC ceca drill meet competition. Both of these positions required skills to work with customers and co-workers. In my opinion I have learned how to effectively communicate with other higher up personal and deal with difficult situations
I have worked hard my entire life to get good grades, and have found ways to balance my academic and personal life. I have a job, am in 5 clubs, have over 200 logged volunteer hours, and have taken 8 AP classes. I am a member of the Stony Point High School Unarmed Drill Team. I have held a leadership position in my high school for all 4 years. In 9th-12th grades, I was Treasurer for the Robotics Team, where I also documented the process of designing, building, and testing the robot.
Personally, I believe I have grit. I am hard working and often perceived as a leader within my grade and school. I like to consider myself as an honor student, considering I have a 4.3 GPA, which means I have to study and do homework. However, I am a part of so much more. I am a member of the band, and a member of jazz band, the sound technician in theatre, and I am an active member of Student Council and the Every Monday Matters Committee.
In high school, I was involved in the National Honor Society allowing me to serve my community on a regular basis. We participated in everything from picking up trash on the side of the road to raising money to support our local library. During college, I have been able to volunteer and participate in student-led research programs. I also enjoy getting to volunteer my time at my local elementary school as a teaching assistant. However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”.
The role I have as the Vice President of SGA allows me to actually make a difference on campus and the lives of other students. This school year has really helped me hone in on my career path. Currently, I am a math tutor at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College, which has provided me the skills to help a lot of students overcome obstacles in math. This is now my passion and I want to become a math teacher. I am very thankful for the opportunities that Southcentral Community College has giving me and the connections I have
