$1,000 Study Abroad Scholarship
Hello, my name is Bretton Hacker. I am from Mount Washington, Kentucky. I love where I live and all the many things my wonderful state offers. I am so grateful for this opportunity to apply for this scholarship. I am also so very thankful, humbled, and honored to have been selected for such a fantastic academic reward. This scholarship will truly help me in many of my future academic endeavors for this upcoming semester. I currently attend Jefferson Community and Technical College located in Louisville, Kentucky. My college is a smaller school, but I love it along with many of the classmates I have. Jefferson Community college has a very friendly staff that will help ensure you are on the right track to success. I am currently majoring in business. After I finish my studies at Jefferson Community College I would love to go to the University of Louisville. As far as extracurricular activities go, I can say that enjoy outdoors time and serving others. I am very passionate about the ministries that I participate in within my church. These activities often include helping homeless in the inner city, having children’s crusades for the community, and visiting a local boy’s home in the area. Overall, I am so excited about this scholarship. This award will help me a great deal in my academics.
I transferred to the University of Texas at Tyler for the Fall 2018 semester majoring in Kinesiology. I will graduate with my bachelor’s degree in May of 2020. Upon completion of my bachelor’s degree, I will pursue a master’s in hospital administration. I care for people and their well-being. As a hospital administrator, I can create a safe and healing environment for patients and a supportive and fulfilling environment for employees. I have been at UT Tyler for a year now and I am loving college life. I have been able to find a great job in Tyler at UT Health Hospital working as a certified pharmacy technician. Even with managing work and school, I have found time to involve myself in extracurricular activities on campus. I have had the honor of being a founding member of UT Tyler’s Zeta Tau Alpha’s Lambda Sigma chapter. I am not only a founding member, but I have the honor of serving as the founding Risk Reduction and Education Chairman on our Executive Council Committee. Through Zeta I have built great relationships with other girls on my campus as well as strong relationships with faculty and staff. Holding an officer position has really pulled me out of my comfort zone. I have more confidence in myself, learning how to be a leader, know how to better communicate, and really care and listen to my fellow chapter members. I owe my success in school to my parents and my brother. They are the reason I blossom and continue to do well in school. They are constantly encouraging me and showing me, with love, that I can succeed at everything I do.
My name is Mariah Schindler and I am the recipient of the Core Values Scholarship of 2019. Iam majoring in Social Work and minoring in Sociology at Wichita State University. I have just completed my first year of college and I really enjoyed the experience! Wichita State Universityhas a welcoming environment that makes it easy to get involved on campus. Along with focusing on my education, I joined an intramural indoor volleyball team. I had a blast! When beginning my adventure in Wichita, I went in not knowing anyone. I definitely wanted to put myself out there and knew in order to do that, I had to join some activities and clubs. Being the recipient for this scholarship is an honor and a blessing. The scholarship will help further my educational experience and relieved some financial stress. As a student, is it important to focus on achieving goals and working towards a career. The Core Values Scholarship of 2019 will aid in my journey of becoming a social worker. I strive to help and support people through their difficult times and guide them in improving their life
I am Christin Davidson. I am currently a sophomore at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I am majoring in Finance and plan to pursue a career in being a financial consultant. Throughout my freshman year I made the Dean’s List both Fall and Spring semester. I also participated in Alpha Lambda Delta, which is the National Honor Society for First-Year Success. Along with ADL I also participated in National Honor Society. This Core Values Scholarship will help me continue with academic success. I am so thankful to have an opportunity like this. It will push me to strive in my educational experience and extracurriculars because not everyone gets a chance like this.
I pushed my boundaries by taking as many challenging classes my counselor would allow. I was a leader in German club, where I participated in the Winter Tree Festival. I coordinated SubforSanta for other underprivileged families. I began to tutor peers in Psychology and History. I enjoyed tutoring so much that my peers and I founded a History Club. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the Beehive Drive trip to Washington D.C. to study History and Government. I have been awarded the AP Scholar with Distinction my Junior year. I have participated in Speech and Debate Tournaments, won awards, and I’m currently qualified to go to the National Speech and Debate Tournament in Dallas this year, in Big Question Debate. I have also actively participated in Cross Country and traveled to California to run competitively. I have several years of violin experience within Orchestra but I’ve become fond of acting. I’ve participated in multiple theatre productions and have been casted as lead in 3 different acting and musical productions. During the course of my High School career, I’ve maintained a 3.989 GPA, received a 29 on the ACT and a 1380 on the SAT. I’ve taken 11 AP classes, and have taken 12 AP tests.
I’ve always enjoyed helping people, even when their problems are outside of my expertise. As I’ve gone through high school education, I’ve become fond of debate and the social sciences surrounding law, government and politics. As a result, I’ve decided to make Law School one of my goals in higher education. I want to be able to be involved in the justice system and help people by helping justice be administered, protect individual liberties and rights, and help society as a whole. I want to become a Judge in the judicial system of the United States. In my efforts, I’ve became a Horatio Alger National Scholar in the high school class of 2019. I’m currently poised to attend the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. My major is currently undecided, leaving room for me to find out what will set the best course for Law school. This scholarship will further help me achieve obtaining a higher education, giving me access to the tools necessary to help others. Every scholarship is a stepping stone. Every bit counts. I’ll be using the money to help pay for any educational costs, being tuition, supplies, or housing. I’m very thankful for the opportunity.
