Boy Scouts has taught me many skills and truths for life, but no skill has had as much impact as servant leadership---the ability to gain the trust of those around you by helping them. Being active and a leader in a group happens naturally now; after years of following, I find myself leading my friends.

I sharpened my leadership skills throughout the many clubs and activities of which I have been involved. I have been fortunate to be able to serve in the Beta Club, National Honor Society and on the production team at my church.

Lego Robotics trained me in team building skills and inspired me to learn more about computers. Building my first computer and planning my Eagle Scout project taught me the importance of preparation to create something exceptional that will last. I believe that this scholarship will help me pursue my dream of becoming a computer hardware engineer. I want to continue to use my leadership skills for the rest of my life and I believe that this scholarship will help me achieve that. Thank you for this great scholarship opportunity and congratulations with reaching your 350,000-membership
