Active member involvement is highly important for a community to thrive; especially in a newly developing community like ours. The recent transition into a new school district has called for the city of Jacksonville and its citizens to come together to work towards its success. The only way the transition can happen smoothly is through community service. When I was made aware of my changing school and district, I first felt hopeless. After the initial shock of having to leave my high school my senior year, I realized I had to make the best of the situation I was given.
The best part about college is that people genuinely care about you if you befriend them. When it comes to making friends in college, start a conversation with one of your classmates. There will be at least one person in your classes who is the same major as you, let this be your stepping-stone. Also, don’t just talk to them in class. Meet up with them for a study session, lunch or develop a daily conversation.
During the event I got the chance to listen to the testimonies of US military veterans. According to those individuals you sing a lot and travel a lot being part of the military. They pay for your education after serving your country. Medical and healthcare is free for you and your family. The military gives you the opportunity to continue your education after serving your country.
Fat City Reflection FAT is an acronym used to represent frustration anxiety and tension represented by The Fat City Workshop Part 1: Experiencing Frustration, Anxiety and Tension. Upon watching the video, I wondered why the instructor, Dr. Rick Lavoie was barking out questions and people looked uptight and timid. After further viewing of the video, I found that the mediator was asking professional individuals questions related to the book that the seminar was based on. The acronym FAT as I previously stated stands for frustration, anxiety and tension, which was the purpose of this seminar/workshop. The instructor was highlighting the kinds of situations some teachers put children in every day.
Their Struggle is Real Students sat in straight long rows as I gently placed a diagnostic assessment on their desk. As I continued placing the diagnostic assessment on each desk, I listened to the moans and groans of my students who resented the assessment. I could hear the females in my classroom sucking their teeth in disappointment, the males mumbling “Wait we Have an Essay”!.I looked out the corner of my eye watching students put their head down. Many students either stared blankly at their assessments with a look of confusion on their face, while other students raised their hand waiting to be called. Before I assisted any of my students, I explained the directions and the purpose of a diagnostic assessment.
The Honor Society helped me stay motivated while enrolled in the Washington State University (WSU) Mechanical Engineering Program. I made the decision to go back to school and earn my Mechanical Engineering degree. It was a difficult decision at the time as I was working fulltime as a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Programmer in the aerospace industry and my husband
In my junior year of high school, I did not think that the bags underneath my eyes could grow any darker. At the time, I was a member of Business Professionals of America, UIL, Student Council, SHAQ, and the National Honors Society. Not only this, but I was taking college courses, an AP course, and had friends and family to attend to. Every day was a new challenge for me. Although all of these comings and goings have a place in my heart, my biggest achievement was becoming class president and planning the 2015 prom.
I was able to see what right looked like and witness what it took to be successful very early in my career. I would like to leave the same impact on my Soldiers that SFC Mayo did on his. I want my Soldiers to remember me as an NCO that cared for his Soldiers the way SF Mayo did all while being able to accomplish any task thrown my way. I want to be the leader that my Soldiers are talking about years after I lead them. I think that it is clear that you left an impact on a Soldier’s life if they remember you.
The Folds of Honor “Higher Education Scholarship” means a lot to me because it will help me receive a higher education without overwhelming my family. Also, the “Higher Education Scholarship” will help pursue my dreams of becoming an Occupational Therapist to help the growing number of brave wounded Warriors. This scholarship will add to my personal drive to complete college. I will know that I have the numerous donators for Folds of Honor cheering for me with their generous donations. Also, the honorable fallen and wounded Warriors, like my Dad, on my side inspiring me to achieve my long-term to help our brave
As I am getting ready to begin my college years, my experience in America is getting richer every day. I have realized how much opportunities I have being an American citizen and living in this part of the world compared to the life i lived in Togo and I intend to make the most of it. I’m working toward my goals and one of them is to join the military. I always have the desire of serving people and I believe serving in the Military is one way to show my gratitude to my new country and its
When it comes to the treatment of veteran students here at Point Park University, they are treated with respect. In some cases, veterans have postponed their education to join the military, resulting in some being undergraduates at Point Park. Veterans here tend to be in their late 20 's or early 30 's. The age difference between them and the typical ages of 18-21-year-old students can be overwhelming. It 's a learning experience for a few veterans, but with the help of Point Park veterans have their admission fee waived and get early registration.
Veterans Day is a day specifically dedicated to honor our heroes. In modern society, Veterans are respected for their valiant work in the military. Because of these brave Americans, people can live with a peace of mind. They have sacrificed so much and with nothing in return. A great act of patriotism is to support our veterans and their families because they have already given much for the
They want to see you grow up to be respectful of those around you; to give you more opportunities than you could have had if you continued to show disrespect and no remorse for those around you. They put you through painstaking tasks that you would have to complete before the sun rose and after it fell. However only certain type of people will understand these meanings and more. For those who show more of a liking to the Military Academy, they tend to be more of those who want to change and show respect to those they have hurt. They feel sorrow, remorse and even pain themselves for what they have done.
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. Whether it was the amazing student leaders or the freshman in my project group at Taylorville, I met some of the most genuine people in my life and they really helped to solidify my view of this school and made me feel like I belong here, like I’m home. It wasn’t just the fact that we spent a majority of this past week together that made us connect, but it was our drive to
Ideally, I would like done for free. The Veterans I have worked with have experienced such traumatizing things I feel like they would feel so blessed and grateful to experience something like this every school semester. In reality, I 'm still trying to find balance, however I no longer feel comparable a reckless adolescent. Right now, I 'm not looking to be on that road, I 'm being right where I stand. The opportunities of departing for school has been a colossal stepping stone for myself as a veteran and opening a door of wonderful opportunities to succeed in college.
