I firmly believe that i deserve this award granted by the Courage to Grow Scholarship. Education is greatly important to me and my future. No one in my family has ever attended college and I know that I can change that. I may come from a poor family but it is my goal to be successful in the career i choose.
Over the last fifteen years, I have grown mentally and socially. I credit my growth to my ability to analyze and understand the world for what it is. Social imagination is the use of information to understand the world and ourselves for who we are. Possessing the quality of mind that can develop reason and the capacity to shift perspectives are the basis of social imagination (Mills 2000). As I mentioned in reflection one, I came to realize that my way of thinking is what helped me overcome living a poor lifestyle. Understanding social imagination means understanding yourself; being aware of factors that give to your personal history and having the ability to develop reason to understand the world better. The fresh fruit of social imagination
Scholarship applies to me mostly through my scholastic work ethic, I am primarily intimating around my transition from sophomore year to junior year. When I first entered the CACHS school system I started out just like any other kid with regular classes and everything. Then around the final week of my sophomore year my teachers started coming to me talking about taking advanced courses for my junior year a topic I didn’t really think much about. My first teacher to come to me about advanced
The National Honor Society organization functions as a symbol of excellence and brilliance of Egg Harbor Township High School. As a committed and goal-oriented individual with more energy than a billion watts, I know that being a member of your well-respected organization would allow me the opportunity to help my community, school, character development and scholastic abilities, and most notably, mutually benefit National Honor Society to the best of my ability.
A person isn 't just born the way they are today. They change themselves throughout their lifetime. Not only does a person grow and change physically, but their personality along grows with them. Through a person 's life they shape who they become to be based on past experiences. The reason that everyone acts differently is because everyone has lived their own life. Based on my life so far two things that are a part of me that helped mold me to who I am today is my involvement in marching band, as well as the AVID program.
I would like to become an active member of Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society in order to benefit my community through service. I am immensely committed to serving and improving my community, as I have made distinctly clear with my 143 service hours. Through these service hours, I have focused on the improvement of the future community by helping disenfranchised refugee children coming from horrible living conditions in Western Africa, by teaching children about biology, chemistry, and scientific history, by preparing freshmen for their high school careers, by raising money to protect and aid voiceless animals hurt in car crashes and other human infringements, and by creating rain gardens, planting food crops, and decreasing Carrboro High School’s environmental
I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement.
Madelynn has been voted President of Str8 Shooters Clay Team by her teammates for the last 2 years. She fills the role perfectly with her drive for knowledge, she has been in a leadership roll for years as a 4H Honors/Allstar member. I think that this has helped her perfect her pursuit through coaching or mentoring shotgun sports with SCTP. I can always rely on her to work with me on our new and upcoming youth, her form and stance will always be textbook, this seems to help the youth understand what goal we are working towards. She could and will pursue the roll of coaching to the next level in the future. This is Madelynn 's last year with us to shoot, she is graduating and going to continue her shooting career with University of Tennessee at Knoxville, she is going to be greatly missed by her teammates.
The Douglas Honors Diversity scholarship will help me achieve my educational and professional goals in many ways. This scholarship will help me continue my education and career path that I am passionate about. I am the first in my family to pursue a higher education. I am also the first in my family to deviate from a “set” path for me.
I have been with the Coral Springs Fire Department Explorers for three years, and I have been riding with the Coral Springs Fire Department every month for two and a half years. Along with riding, I have participated in many details, and, since my promotion to lieutenant, I have also been in charge of some details. The Fire Explorer Program has been such an integral part of my life over the past couple years that it is impossible for it to not have changed me. It has, especially, helped with choosing a career and being prepared for my future. The scholarship will help further my interest in to a firefighting and emergency medical services career, and I believe I should receive this scholarship
I am the youngest in my family, but I am also the only child in my family to attend a 4-year university. I value education and I work diligently to do the best I can in anything I commit myself to. Although my parents do not demand much from me, I put the pressure on myself because I want to make them proud and have a better future for myself and for my family. My parents never had the opportunity to chase their dreams; however, I have the support of my family and the funding from this country to pursue my dreams. I understand the road to my aspirations is not going to be easy, but I am committed to dedicating the necessary time and

Thank you for taking the time to speak with me yesterday. I am honored to be considered for this valuable investment and excited for the opportunity to collaborate with dedicated, service-oriented movers and shakers. Pat Tillman Scholarship would be an incredible support to me and would both acknowledge my own journey and reinforce my belief in the necessity of education as a tool for more impactful service.
I am pursing a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about education and excited to share the joy of learning with students. The perspective of wonder and sense of excitement that children bring into education motivates me daily. Teaching can leave a lasting impression in a child’s life and offers a special opportunity to shape the bright young minds of future generations. While many professions can be impactful, I believe the qualities of the person in the career position to be the most influential. The integrity I possess and genuine character I have reveals my authentic positive outlook on life. I aspire to be the voice that encourages students to obtain a life changing education that will aid them in their journey. I desire to be a teacher that takes time out of my day to have meaningful minutes in a student’s life and to represent the picture of a positive role- model. I hope to leave a lasting impact by creating a caring atmosphere that allows students to express themselves, discover knowledge, and obtain their fullest potential confidently!
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. My high school is highly competitive and I’m grateful that I was surrounded by such wonderful peers and teachers. Completing high school, I received 12th place out of almost 450 students, with a weighted GPA of 4.244. Despite my hard course load,
