In April Matthew participated in his first Track and Field Meet at Hannibal High School. Matthew had several family members present to watch him compete. Matthew with support made his way to all stations to demonstrate his skill level.
After taking care of my educational responsibilities and extra-curricular activities, I always find the time to involve myself in service-oriented activities. For example, during the last year, I completed 68 hours of community service. And, this year I hope to devote more hours to activities that will benefit my fellow students and my community. I have great plans in mind like organizing service trips, doing fund raisers, reserve one Saturday each month to community service to bring a smile to someone’s face. Additionally, this year the Interact members have selected me as a treasure for the school year 2015-2016; giving me the chance to use my leadership skills to provide a valuable service to my classmates.
Throughout this past week, thanks to Alabama Action, I have discovered the true meaning of a “servant’s heart” and discovered that when like-minded people get together, we can make a huge impact on the community. Servitude is something that is incredibly close to my heart and this week was the perfect introduction to all that the UA Honors College has to offer to help find ways to leave my mark. Coming into this week, we were just a large group of kids from every corner of the country – joined only by our desire to serve and our love for the University of Alabama. But, in just a few short days, we became a community of thinkers, leaders, and dreamers who formed bonds that will last throughout these next few years and beyond. Because I am not from Alabama, I knew that this program was going to be an excellent way to get involved and meet people in a smaller setting before classes start – but I never expected the impact that the people I met this week would have had on me.
Rodeo has helped me grow up. Since third grade I went from going to rodeos with my family to chasing the white lines on my own. I have had numerous opportunities presented to me from rodeo such as being on tv for qualifying for Worlds, traveling all the way to New Mexico and Wyoming to compete, and being rodeo queen for Southern Indiana Junior Rodeo Association. My parents took care of my horses for me. They cleaned stalls, fed them day and night, and packed the trailer for each rodeo.
This includes military organizations, performance and musical groups, service groups, religious organizations, and recreational activities. There is also 16 different sports teams that the cadets can take advantage of. The graduates of Virginia Military Institute generally find a lot of success.

As an avid humanitarian and high achieving honor student, I believe I qualify to receive the Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo Scholarship. When I think of HOT, I think of the quintessential Texan: someone with a big heart, humble soul, and a great attitude. I am a proud Texan and investing in me for this scholarship will help me continue to spread the Texan way of life. One of my greatest passions is community service and philanthropy. In my sophomore year of high school, I began an organization dedicated to my passions.
“FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.” These words from the FFA motto, is what this great program is all about. I have been involved with this great organization ever since I was in 7th grade and since then, FFA has made a positive impact on my life. FFA stands for “Future Farmers of America”, it is for students that want to be involved in agriculture, and leadership. This great organization is based on agricultural education that provides life-changing experiences for its members. The opportunities that are offered are endless.
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
The community I grew up in central Texas celebrated my heritage, honored differences in culture, and fostered personal growth and self-discovery. My parents, with the strong work ethic they developed on their family’s farms in Ghana, encouraged my brother and me to work hard and find ways to use our skills to be of service to others, which wasn’t hard to do growing up in Austin with its many avenues to become involved and take care of the community, whether it was helping to direct families through the Trail of Lights at Zilker Park during the winter or raise money for educational programs for underprivileged kids in the area through working the concession stands at the University of Texas at Austin. It was this collaborative mindset that Austin
These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school. 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.
What I done this past year to contribute to the Alameda community Learning Center is that me and my friend, Justin planned the fundraisers for the class of 2019. We almost raised 700 dollars for the whole class of 2019 students. Also, I was elected to be an officer of the red cross club next year. So ,my next year 's plan is that, I will encourage everyone to join the red cross club because they can help change the world and aclc, and they can get their community service hours.
He has always encouraged me to become the best I can be. He would always tell me: “Strive for success and don’t stop until you reach your full potential.” Being able to see the mistakes he made will help me succeed at Allen. This past season really opened my eyes because I was offered multiple scholarships from many different Universities and Community Colleges. Looking back at my performances has made me realize how far I have come from when I set my goal when younger. I have exceeded my goals and I never imagined being as far as I am now.
The education in the Unite States is famous in the world. Cause this reason, most of the parent hope they can send their child to studying in the states. This is why I am here studying in the Houston, Texas. I came to clear Lake when I was 16 years old; I was studying in the high school that supports house family for international student. First day in the other country supposed to be joy.
Because of his outstanding ability to motivate us, the quality of our music and marching drills rapidly improved. As a result, we were awarded superior ratings and best in class awards during our Fall competition season. My service as band president has taught me the value of a good work ethic, the strength to go the extra mile, commitment, and selflessness. I will carry these lessons with me to college next year and eventually to my chosen career as a Graphic Designer. In an interview with a local news station about our band’s fundraising drive to purchase new uniforms, I said, “It’s a new era for the Ardmore Tiger Marching Band.” I’m so thankful to have had a hand in such a significant
