When I read the description of the JMU Honors program and saw the three questions that described the desired candidate, I couldn 't help but think that this was the perfect program for me. Throughout high school, I have continually challenged myself by taking classes that required my constant attention and focus. Other than required classes, I have taken nothing but Honors and AP courses. During my junior year, I also worked an average of 25 hours/week.

Common Core is the federal government’s largest attempt to establish nationwide educational standards for all students in all grade levels in the subjects of reading and math. Proponents of Common Core argue that the standards ensure that students are ready for college or career success upon high school graduation. The standards can also serve as a diagnostic tool to gauge the academic standing of individual students, schools and districts. Resources can be better allocated towards individuals and schools that may be underperforming. Progress can be measured by assessing the extent to which individuals and schools meet the standards.

We started a Debt Free student organization that connected students to alumni, scholarships, and resources on campus to minimize student debt. In fact, while I was at Ball State the average student debt at the University went down over 4 years.
The majority of high school students tend to spend their spring semester of their junior year preparing to take the SAT or ACT.

Being satisfied with accomplishments only sets people at a certain level of grit for a lifetime. People can never grow more round as a student, athlete, or character without taking shots in life.
