Schaidle had a horticulture class that I took my seventh and eighth grade year. It was an Explore class in which we would go outside, work on projects for the school, and keep up the Nature Center.

All of the limbs went into a pile and when it grew tall we had a bonfire.

I did not get to experience any true fieldwork because it was January, but I did get to visit a few sites such as the Fish way at Boshers Dam and the VCU Rice Center. In place of the fieldwork, I did get the opportunity to experience a lot of lab

I attempted to convey the sense of wonder and nature I felt while on the trip, and I think this is best captured in the first stanza. “The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant.” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.
In each extracurricular we focus on giving back to our community. Initially, I was hesitant to join clubs as I was anti-social but now am thankful as I have stepped outside of my comfort zone.

School has taught me a wide array of knowledge that will assist me when I get into the real world. It has helped me have better reasoning, problem solving, and memory skills. Without school, I wouldn’t be nearly as intelligent or mature as I am today. I also wouldn’t have met all of my friends, who’ve helped shape me into the man I am today. As I’ve gotten deeper into my education, I realized that every year the stress levels and stakes get a bit higher.

Therefore, I am hopeful to be awarded this scholarship to assist my education and eventually my future
