This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for students of GVSU, and I am honored to be considered for this scholarship. I believe that I am a great applicant for this scholarship, and that I deserve this scholarship. One reason I deserve this scholarship is because of my strong academic courses. Throughout my high school career, I pushed myself academically by taking a total of 10 AP classes and 7 honors classes. These classes were all challenging, yet I pushed through with determination to complete the classes to the best of my ability.
From my teachers to my classmates, the numerous people at this school are a mix of the most wonderful, kind, and encouraging people that I have ever encountered. One of the most memorable experiences that I have had at Prairie Ridge was my participation in a group for new students organized by two great counselors: Mr. Dusenske and Mrs. Berg. I am very thankful for this experience because I was able to become comfortable and happy at Prairie Ridge alongside other students with whom I could empathize. Furthermore, without the encouragement and kindness from my peers or the PR staff, I would not have felt the desire to succeed , nor would I have stepped out of my comfort zone to do
Often times I ask myself why I even come to school? Does our education system actually help us learn, or is it mere memorization of facts. I’ve come to this realization where “not-so-hard-working” students can obtain greater rewards than students who are more diligent. Most papers today are not original. With many open sources such as SparkNotes, Wikipedia, and Google, hardly anything that students create requires much effort.

Recieveing this letter that I was inducted to be in the National Junior Honor Society made my heart beat faster than I’d ever keep track of, knowing that I was more of a gifted student. Every heart beat was building up my stimulation about this honor, telling me that I demonstrate scholarship, citizenship, character, leadership, and service. To know that I have all of those traits in me makes me feel more of a part of this society, and has made me begin to realize the considerable things that I’ve done. This oppertunity is great for me because I can expand my inner and outer school activities to show what great things I do in my time. I truly enjoy having a mental achievement in school, knowing that my grades sit at the top of the A’s shelf and hardly sit on level B.
She begins to care about her appearance, gossip, popularity, and boys and shows that side of her to the school, but behind closed doors, some of Cady's best friends are Janice and Damian which are considered to be losers. Behind closed doors Cady also loves math, is down to earth and does not care about her appearance. Thus, this is Cady's backstage. These two examples tie into Goffman's theory of dramaturgy because in both instances what the characters let out to people is different to what they are behind
Ronald Reagan displayed strong leadership during not only his presidency, but throughout his life, beginning in high school. While studying in high school and college, Reagan was also leading his peers as an athlete, captain, lifeguard, student body president, and student council president. As a leader, Reagan inspired others as he advocated for those around him. As young adults and students, we can pursue leaderships roles to affect our peers just as Reagan did. Over the course of my high school career, I have become a leader among my peers and I have made a positive difference in my school, community, and family.
Hey Drake you still scared asked James. No it wasn’t that bad my teachers were nice but only time can tell because the first day last year the teachers were not that bad but only time can tell. How about you said Mike. Same as last year the teachers love me and can’t stop My teachers are not that bad but if they were anything like Drake’s old teachers if they were i’d get out of there real fast I said. Yeah no kidding mine are ok but my math teacher is really cool and isn’t strict unless we were being really loud.
Intellect is a power that leads us to express our smartness. In the essay “Hidden Intelligence” by Gerald Graff he argues that the intellectual world is “much like the world of team sports, with rival interpretations … rival theories… and elaborate team competitions”. He attests from his own experience that intellect does not only exist in the scholarly form of thinking which is known as academic smart, knowledge can also take the form of street smart. He also demonstrates that there are some students are not academically good at school but they are very smart (by explaining a situation about a 14 years boy who does not show intellectual side because of fear of bullying but practices hidden intellectualism). It seems that the students who
Becoming part of the school’s National Honor Society proves to me that all the years of struggle, determination, and hard work has definitely paid off. In addition to becoming a member of my school’s NHS, I was also elected as President of the French Honor Society, received 6 Silver Honor Roles certificates since 8th grade, and was also given the “Best Student” award in IB Business HL. To me, all of these achievements portray my growth since my struggles in middle school. Developing myself and seeing positive results is one of the best feelings in the world - it made me realize how effective and powerful it is to really desire
