The National Honors Society allows students to be build and create traits that are essential in a successful adult. I truly believe that hold many of these traits and joining the National Honor Society will grant me the opportunity to expand on these traits and grow as a person. Thus far I have focus greatly on the scholarship aspect of NHS and have been dedicated to my academics. I have held my GPA above 4.0 and have always been devoted to maintaining that high level of academic success. The skills I have shown in devoting myself to my academics can be easily translated into my dedication for the other aspects of leadership, service and character. Having previously held a officer role in the National Junior Honor Society I have gained experience
I have been a part of JROTC for the past four years of my high school career. During my time in the program, I gained more self-confidence and was able to venture out of my comfort zone, which allowed me to join numerous clubs and organizations throughout my high school career. The clubs include the Chess Club for one year, the Environmental Club and AFJROTC Honor Guard team for two years, and Science Olympiad all my four years of high school. The organizations include the National Technical Honor Society for two years and National Honor Society for two years as well and voted Vice President.
The fourth value enumerated in the Oregon State Police Officers Association’s mission is “to foster and maintain, among members of the Association, the highest standards of professionalism and devotion to duty.” A devotion to duty has become more to me than actively perform one’s responsibilities. What I believe has molded me into the young man that I am today is that I have set a precedent of service in my life so great that I want my entire to be devoted to it. Service has become the act that benefits and advances all people with the talents that I have been granted and in the ways I am trained to do, and I am in the process of dedicating my life to this continual form of duty.
I’m applying for the AVID program due to the fact that I believe that I’m a hardworking student. I want to challenge myself so I can achieve the best I can be academically.

Ever since I was a young kid I have always been interested in movies. My grandma, who was full of the wise the life experience left, always knew about my interest in movies. She feed my vain for the art. Even though her religion, she professed Adventist of seven-day religion, didn't let her go to the cinema, she always found the way to took me to the cinema. She and I enjoyed watch movies. We used to sit in the darkness room, with our faces illuminated from the reflection of the light which rebooted from the screen, both absorbs in the plot of the movie which made us laughed or cried. After the movie, while we went back to her home, she started to talk about the movie. She had a particular point of view where the main story
My father is going to retire in some years and my mother is a house wife. They both have invested in their house heavily therefore these reasons might affect my family’s ability to fund my college tuition.
Beta Club provides students opportunities to serve their local and global communities through the donation of time, objects, and money. The planning for my personal service project began my first year in the club and has continued through this academic school year. Many of the projects in my school’s chapter of Beta Club serve the local community only and have no global impact. I began to search for organizations which work to benefit those in need across the globe and found Kiva. Individuals in every country can request loan amounts which are funded through micro loans by multiple donors. Loan requests range from agriculture and education to retail and food.
The foreclosure crisis is the second major financial dilemma of the twenty-first century. To solve this, the roots of the problem need to be dug up and exposed followed by replanting with an appropriately improved regulatory system to help build stronger roots for the future. It seems that the free market system can't be free anymore given its intertwining roots extend way beyond domestic to international financial systems. There are two fundamental causes to the latest credit crisis: 1) poor quality securitized mortgages and 2) insufficient underwriting for credit poor borrowers. Secondary (downstream) problems making the financial crisis more complex include underemployment and business failures. Many banks,
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an organization that will go above and beyond to help the members achieve his or her goals academically. I have seen first had that this organization can and will help every college student that takes the change and joins. Not only does my local chapter recognize students for their dedication and hard work effort but also over the past year I have seen the difference this organization makes within the life of a college student.
Like most young boys I grew up idolizing sport heroes, racing kids on the playground, and playing sports outside. My teams were the Cowboys, the Astros, and later on in life the Aggies. Consequentially, if you didn’t love Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio than I didn’t really like you. Although most of these decisions were made based upon my brother’s sport interest, I learned to love them in my own way. After all, my brother was the one who I played basketball with, threw the football and baseball with, and eventually the one who inspired my love for A&M and the Aggies. For all my life I can remember wanting to play sports and wanting to watch sports, but around 7th grade when my brother moved off to A&M is when I really started getting the sports bug. Visiting for home games, standing in the
I intend to use this scholarship to help pay for my tuition and books at the Southern Arizona University of Phoenix- Online. I would like to be considered for this scholarship because I have no financial help from my family. This means that I have to be able to pay for college on my own because of the fact that my father is no longer in my life, and my mom has my other siblings to take care of. My father is no longer in my life because he now lives in Mexico with his other family. I don’t have financial help from him because he has a wife and six other children. My mother would like to be able to help me, but she has two other children she’s taking care of by herself, and she has to prepare for my sister's graduation next year as well as mine this year. I plan to get a job after I graduate to help pay for the expenses of college, but since I am going online the expenses of college are going to be a lot less than if I were to go on campus, this is the main reason I am planning to go online, and to take a lot of the stress of being totally alone off myself because I will only be twenty minutes away from my family instead of an hour or two.
Throughout high school, I have always been a part of high honor roll, and as a junior and senior, I have been a member of National Honor Society. Because I do not participate in sports, I have always been purely dedicated to my schoolwork and getting exceptional grades. Being in the Honors Program at LLCC would not only continue by achievements in academic honors, but help me grow in my goals and plans for the future.
At this point in my high school career, I am considering going into computer engineering, which will require some form of post-secondary education. Winning this scholarship would be a substantial step forward in paying for the classes required to obtain a degree in that field.
Coming into UNF in fall of 2017 I will be a transfer student. The choice to transfer wasn’t hard at all. I was born and raised in Jacksonville and miss home terribly. After not being happy at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida I knew I needed to move back home to Jacksonville and finish up my degree at the best school in Jacksonville, which happens to have a good exercise science program. I chose to transfer UNF’s Exercise Science program because I miss home, but also because I have heard great things about the program from former and current students.
“Congratulations, you have been accepted to Rutgers University-New Brunswick.” These words were, to me, the words of accomplishment and pride. However, these were not the only words Rutgers University wrote to me. In the Fall of 2015, I was an incoming senior at Hunterdon Central Regional High School. Excited about the years ahead, I applied to many schools throughout the United States. I applied to two schools in Alabama, two schools in Indiana, two schools in New York, and only one in New Jersey-Rutgers. My initial goal was to be my own person and go to a University that no one in my family had attended. In fact, my goal was to attend Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. This was a dream because my closest grandfather had planned to go there to study engineering. Being a bright student, he was accepted with a scholarship. Getting ready to leave to form a new beginning and only a few days before graduation, his father passed away. Unable to go from New Jersey to Indiana knowing that his family needed him, he decided to stay home and run the family tile business. Years later when my twin brother and I were born, he was God’s blessing to us. Growing up without a father, he stepped in to fill the gap. As
