National Honor Society is more than a club I am apart of, it has given me the motivation to strive to keep my grades at a certain level, keep up with community service, treat others with respect, and also conduct myself in a mature manner. The National Honor Society Scholarship would help fund my schooling at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida.
This scholarship would have a positive impact on my education and help my mom pay for college without taking student loans. My mom has been a single mom for eighteen years and has supported me, my brother, and grandparents. She does not receive child support on a regular basis and does everything on her own. Unfortunately, my younger brother is an accident-prone child and has racked up some high medical bills throughout the years. For countless years she has worked two jobs to support everyone and provide anything within reason. My mom is currently unemployed due to the downturn in the oil field in west Texas. Now she has taken on the challenge of remodeling and flipping houses.
Scholarship has always been a major part of society, and is valuable in all aspects of life. The search for knowledge will never end, as scholarship is what creates innovations that benefit everyone. As a senior, I have come to realize how important education is. Being educated is what leads to better and brighter futures; therefore, throughout all of my years in school, I have worked hard. I have challenged myself with rigorous AP and honors courses, as well as keeping all of my grades an A. My constant hard work in school, I believe, qualifies me for the National Honor Society. I am willing
The National Honor Society is a nation’s premier organization that authorizes to recognize outstanding high school students. Yet, it contains of the four pillars which are scholarship, service, leadership, and leader. As to this, I believe that I fulfill each and every pillar that National Honor Society has founded.
Receiving this scholarship will boost my self-esteem knowing that I was responsible for creating a foundation that brings me closer to my career goal. This scholarship will also reduce my stress over the tuition cost. It will also eases my burden of the future student
I believe that I should be chosen as an ESA Foundation Computer and Video Game Scholarship winner because I would then be able to further fund my education at The University of Texas at Dallas. I have the potential to do great things, but unfortunately money is a limiting factor. My family isn’t able to provide me with a large sum of money for college, so as a result of this I am turning to outside scholarships for help. The ESA Foundation Computer and Video Game Scholarship would help me greatly in helping pay for tuition expenses. I would not let this scholarship money go to waste should I earn the privilege of being chosen as a winner. Throughout high school I have done my best to be studious and earn the highest grade to the best of my
Ever since I was a little girl, father always told me that I was going to do “great things” with my life. I suppose that he was right. It became increasingly noticeable, as early as Kindergarten, that I possessed an intellectual skill set that was slightly more advanced than my fellow peers. I remember my teachers paying special attention to me and even using my schoolwork as an example for the rest of the class. My parents would constantly brag about me to their friends and coworkers. And at the end of each school year I would walk away with all of the “most important” merit awards such as: the Honor Roll Award, the Outstanding Achievement Award, Most Conscientious Student, and the Most Dedicated Scholar Award given to select individuals that had maintained straight A’s throughout the year. In fact, my former principal once came up to me and said, “Stacy you are truly a credit to the African American race. I’m so proud of you!” I didn’t quite know what he’d meant by that statement, so I just assumed it was some sort of compliment.
As a high achieving honor roll student, my college education has always been a priority from the time I was young. Florida has become my new home and I would love to attend a university in this wonderful state. I moved from Colorado in May of 2016 and have become more dedicated to school ever since attaining my straight A’s in high school credit classes. Academics are always on the forefront of my mind and it would be quite endearing to finally have all my hard work pay off and be granted a scholarship.
I am honored to submit my candidacy for consideration as one of the two recipients of the Phi Theta kappa Gold Scholarship. I believe that my excellent academic record and active involvement in Phi Theta kappa both locally and regionally makes me a good candidate for the scholarship.
Coming from a small high school and later a small college, I know now more than ever that James Madison University is the school for me. When I received a letter in the mail offering me not only an acceptance letter, but also an abundant scholarship from Elizabethtown College, a small private school, I felt I would be foolish not to accept this generous award. While I have had great experiences and have learned an abundance of knowledge in and outside the classroom during my first semester of college, I now know that to reach my full potential, it’s time to move on to a larger, more diverse campus like JMU. For me, Elizabethtown College was comfortable and reminded me of my hometown. Now I know that to be more successful, I need to step
Upon embarking on my new ventures. I Daja Benton will be competing in the Miss Maryland USA 2016 Pageant. With Gods grace and my diligence I plan to work extensively in order to provide the best image of a Miss Maryland USA winner. Furthermore, I can not embark on this journey alone, I need your help and tremendous support. Before gracing the stage each contestant is responsible for raising 895.00 in sponsporships.

The sponsorship fee also covers expenses of the pageant, and is apart of the 80,000.00 cash prize given to the winner of the pageant. By sponsoring Daja you are placing all bets on a young woman who is more than capable of serving as
Americans owe over $1.4 trillion in student loan debt, spread out among about 44 million borrowers, and with high schools pushing towards graduates going to college that number is going to rise. And so brings the question, does having all that money to pay off end up being worth it? More than 59 percent of people in the workforce today have had at least some college or more. This means more than half of the workforce has completed a college education of some sort. College is a worthy investment for most people going into more skilled professions because unemployment rates are high for non-college graduates, college tuition is lowering, any college degree is better than none, and the wage gap shows an obvious increase of pay for college graduates.
My academic goals are to obtain a degree in Health Science, with a minor in German. After graduating, I plan to pursue a master’s degree in Athletic Training. While in high school, I was part of the soccer and golf teams. My involvement in sports has had a very positive impact on my life. My coaches have had a great influence on my love for my communities sports and my goal to pursue a career in athletics.
Ever since I was little, I have had a small paper printout of the world taped to my bedroom wall, pinned with places I have always wanted to visit. Even though I have now saved enough money and gotten an actual map, I am still extremely eager to explore and experience the world. With this thorough affection of Earth in place, I have decided to major in International Studies. I am thrilled about this upcoming opportunity that the Education First scholarship provides. It will help me gain knowledge and experience that will be needed in the field I am going into.
I exemplify excellence academically by keeping up with my schoolwork and always working my hardest on all the work I have. When I get assigned school work I always make sure to put it in my planner, both on the day it was assigned and on the day its due. In my personal life I display excellence by being kind to those around me and helping others whenever I can. I love volunteering even though I don’t have as much time as I would like to do it, and to me volunteering is a great way to help others and displaying excellence - even when no one is watching. In my opinion academic and personal excellence is displayed when someone does something without expecting to receive praise. So if someone were to volunteer it would be because they like doing it and not because they need to get into a good college, even though volunteering is a great thing to have on a college application. The characteristics I described above to demonstrate my academic and personal excellence make me a good candidate for induction into National Honor Society because I keep track of when I need to do something or be somewhere and I am always willing to participate in volunteering opportunities.
