Even after entering high school, the importance of keeping my grades up never occurred to me as it became a value to me. Along with keeping excellent grades, I was also involved in several school activities. Throughout my high school years, I presented extravagant academics, leadership, and community work. I was involved in National Honor Society, class council, student council, and blue crew all four years, which is a fan club that attends sports events to support our school’s teams. I also was a varsity cheerleader throughout my high school career. With being inducted to National Honor Society, I completed community service hours. My community service hours consisted of helping out Illini Middle School with their annual D.A.R.E. picnic, working concessions stands for my school’s baseball team, helping sixth graders prepare for their Iditarod, and contributing help at an American Red Cross blood drive. I believe I am worthy of this scholarship because the career path I have chosen takes an appreciable amount of time and money. Overall, I believe I deserve this scholarship because I have the potential to succeed in my career as I would be very appreciative to be awarded the
Along with being a diligent student who has been enrolled in 11 Advanced Placement classes, I have also dedicated my time to other causes. For example, I have volunteered at public libraries, Special Olympics events, orphanages for intellectually disabled children, and food pantries. While maintaining a rigorous course load and volunteering, I also work at Kumon. I tutor children to boost their confidences and understanding of concepts vital to their future success. Moreover, I have received membership to The National Honor Society and have been awarded an AP Scholar with Merit Award. My dedication to becoming more culturally aware and five years of enrollment in Spanish classes has allowed me to be inducted into Spanish Honor Society. Within
My biggest weakness and my economic status transformed me into a better student, and help me grow up as a person. I moved from a Spanish speaking country, where I did not know English at all, to The United States of America about six years ago. As a newcomer and the first generation of my family in attending to a university, I had had to overcome the language barrier, and work while studying in order to help in my household, without let my grades be affected by this. This two barrier teach me time management, responsible and, most importantly, that everything may be possible with hard work, dedication and determination. I have kept a significant high grade average point (GPA) of 3.81/4.0. I am actively participating in research projects. I am a member of PSI CHI, the International Honor Society in Psychology, and the Association for Psychological Science (APS). I am planning to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University, Teacher College.
Throughout my life, my extracurriculars have supplemented my academics. My club memberships range from Math Counts to National Junior Honor Society, where I hold the position of Vice President. Moreover, I played baseball for numerous seasons and have reached the highest level in my school’s band program. Furthermore, I have assisted my church live stream services for the past
I am an active member of my school and community. At school I feel that i've gained the respect of my peers being elected as Student Council representative for the past four years. I have also been elected the treasurer of the choir, and secretary of the band. I am part of the Ross Middle School bucket drumming group and have been casted as part of the school theatre’s annual play. After school on Wednesdays I assist Ms. Rullman in helping students with homework and enhancing study methods. I am currently participating in science olympiad and have in the past. I am also an anchor on the popular Good Morning Ross Middle School weekly news show. In addition, I have been a part of National Junior Honor Society which takes part in service projects
During my weekends when I was not playing in baseball I would be volunteering at Waldron Wings which was a Domestic Violence shelter housing women and children who left their broken home. I volunteer at this facility up into its closing at the beginning of my sophomore year. Often times amidst the week I would tutor kids at my own conviction at the Haughville Library just because I would see them struggling and it only made me yearn to liberate their ignorance. Which leads to another one of my ventures which is Toys for Tots which I participated in faithfully in eighth and ninth grade. A group of peers and I would go “Christmas Shopping” and supply kids who were not fortunate enough to receive gifts with toys and games they could only dream of having. I am a high-honor roll student which is evident from me receiving this letter. On top of that, I always dreamed of leaving a mark on my high school career one days and this is one of the many ways attain this goal and impact my
My contribution to NYC public schools children in education has been extensive. I first began working in NYC public schools as a speech pathologist in 1980. I would examine expressive and receptive language skills of children and through task analyses develop strategies of language acquisition. In short, I was able to gets students to improve their reading and writing skills in order to master grade level competencies. In my educational journey, I was recruited by Principal Louis Rapport to become an Assistant Principal. Principal Rapport ran an after-school program for teachers who wanted to become school leaders. I worked in coordinating summer programs at George Westinghouse Vocational High School in 1986. I worked hand in hand with the principal to build community partners for our school which offered twelve or more trade programs and internships for students ranging form optical to jewelry making. In 1989, I was selected to serve as Assistant Principal of Special Education at Automotive High School, with Principal Steve Gilbert, who has since passed away. Principal Gilbert much like Principal Rapport was my mentors in leadership within the educational arena. With the support of Principal Gilbert, I was able to go to a Harvard Graduate School of Education and participate in a Summer Seminar in 1995. This was the season of “Inclusion in Schools”. Principal Gilbert recommended me for a program, Assistant Principal to Principal Program
Throughout the past four years of high school, I have done my best to try and stay actively involved in the community. I have been presented with some amazing volunteer opportunities such as Huron Safety Town, STAR Leadership Camp, American Red Cross, and Huron High School Girl’s Basketball Biddy Program. I spent over 24 hours at Huron Safety Town where I was able to help young students, mainly those going into Kindergarten, learn how to stay safe while on the road. I was also able to spend over 24 hours at STAR Leadership Camp where I was a councilor to those going into the sixth grade. I made sure that each student understood the importance of being a leader in today's society and how important they are to Huron’s community. Through National Honor Society I have been able to maintain in constant contact, approximately 10 hours, with the American Red Cross by volunteering in monthly blood drives. I have also dedicated 16 hours of my time to those young girls interested in someday being a varsity basketball player through the Biddy Basketball Program.
The contributions I have made to my school include participating in volleyball from the fall of 2014 to present. For volleyball, we have collected food for the food pantry, conducted a youth night to teach younger children the fundamentals of volleyball, and a breast cancer awareness night which included raising money to fund breast cancer research. I also participate in dance and softball. For the 2016 softball season I was chosen for the spirit award because of my positive attitude and energy during games and practices. Through hard work and dedication the dance team won conference champs at the 2016 conference competition. I was chosen by my coaches for the Limitless Leader Award and the Sportsmanship Award in 2015 and last year. I have earned a varsity letter in
I have, honestly, always performed to my best ability in all of my classes and I will continue to strive for excellence at Bishop Noll. I am very motivated and extremely hardworking in the classroom. My elementary and middle school grades on a difficult scale and is very competitive, but I have always managed to get high grades. My two older brothers have always motivated me to perform my best in school, and if I didn’t have them to push me I definitely would not have the self-determination and stamina that I do now. I have been on A or A-B honor roll for as long as I can remember but that is not because I am gifted or extraordinary, it is because I work extremely hard, have had excellent examples and teachers, and am incredibly motivated. I am very proud of the grades I have gotten and the work that I have done at my current school, and I look forward to achieving all of the goals that I have for myself in high
I have have attended Diboll High School for the entirety of my my high school career. I have taken great measures to ensure that I am an involved in almost every activity Diboll High School has to offer. While in High School I have been involved in Dazzlers, National Honor Society, SOAR, Spanish club, HOSA, Student Council, One Act Play, UIL Journalism events, FCCLA, Varsity Golf, and ACADEC. I manage
While in elementary school I was diagnosed with a type of dyslexia, which did not make school easy for me because I already had a speech impediment due to being tongue tied. I got taken out of class everyday in elementary school to work on my speech and reading skills. Most teachers just thought I was not intelligent and put me in the lowest reading groups. Third grade was a turning point for me; my teacher, Mrs. Eddy, saw that I was intelligent enough to understand the hardest material, and she did her own research online which no other teacher had done for me. She helped me come up with techniques to help me read with my dyslexia more than any other teacher or reading coach had in school. I even started to attend a speech class in Edinboro every other day after school. I eventually learned how to work around my dyslexia and speech impediment. By the time I was in sixth grade, I did not need any more special attention for my impediments, and I started to take school more seriously. Now that I am over that tedious obstacle in my life, I am always striving to be the best version of myself as I can possibly be. I have worked way too hard to be stopped by anything that stands in between me and my
One of the most meaningful accomplishments of my life was my acceptance to Stokes Early College. It is an exceptional program that has allowed me to take college classes while still in high school and graduate with an associate's degree. It was especially challenging for me, because I was previously diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder (ADHD.) However, despite being given this label, I was especially motivated to work hard to achieve the goals important to me. When my acceptance letter came in the mail, I was so excited because I had completed my goal of being accepted to Stokes Early College, and had received a new goal of finishing the program and moving on to a university. Remaining and excelling in the program has required
My ability to continue to make progress as a student at SPC has been due to the combination of financial aid, the Women on the Way Program, and scholarships. Even though I am still struggling very hard, the progress I have been able to achieve has brought me closer to my dream of earning my degree. The ability to further my educational development makes my disability seem insignificant because I am constantly moving forward and my future looks bright. I am no longer fearful or apprehensive as my feelings of insecurity have taken a backseat to the pride I now feel about the success I have made so far. I am still very heavily involved in tutoring and I use some of the awarded scholarship money to purchase materials and teaching aids in order
Hi, I’m Emily Margolis! You may know me from different extra clubs around school. I try to involve myself in varied extracurricular activities, like SGA, for school spirit, FBLA, for competition, Junior Advisory, for prom, and Track, as a sport. I spent a lot of time in high school gaining community service through Key Club, Beta Club, and by volunteering at pet shelters and the library. Before I joined Track, I devoted many years to karate and became a second degree black belt. This helped me develop leadership skills, discipline, and patience. At the beginning of this year, I became the Junior Class Advocate.
