This year many students will apply for scholarships but the number ofscholarships will not even approach the demand of the students. In thissituation it is up to the scholarship agencies to decide who is the mostdeserving of these funds. I believe that I am the most qualified applicant forthe R.C. Easley National Scholarship. I have displayed excellence in theclassroom, in extra-curricular activities, and I believe with the education Ireceive I will benefit society greatly.
Throughout my high school career I have prided myself on a difficultclass load and consistently good grades. While at Horicon High School I feel Ihave challenged myself more than any other student. Instead of taking the usualstudy hall I have elected to fill that time with another class.
I will graduatethis summer with a total of 31.25 credits; more than any of my classmates. Ihave maintained a GPA of 3.938 during school while taking difficult courses suchas physics, calculus, AP microeconomics, AP macroeconomics, and computer science.
Even though I carry a heavy load of classes I have found time for extra-curricular activities. I have been involved in golf, Science Olympiad, mathteam, Business World, T.E.A.M.S., and I have been involved in various bandfunctions.
I also have had a part-time job at the local grocery store since thesummer after my sophomore year. I usually work approximately 20 hours a weekduring the school year.With the education I will receive while attending a world-classuniversity I am sure I will have a positive effect on society. Being anengineer I will be involved in designing many products that affect everyone.
Iwill use my acquired skills to make sure every product I work on is the mostbeneficial to society.Category: English
