|JAVANNEY CAMPBELL- Clan Carthy High|
This scholarship would help to make me better able to obtain the necessary materials and equipment needed to help propel me along the path to success on which I am now trod. It will also aid in putting me closer in achieving my educational goals and my aspirations to become a Flight Attendant. Thus, bringing my career goals closer to my grasp.
My eligibility for this scholarship lies mainly in my academic performances, social objectives and also my educational intentions that I wish to pursue in the future. During my life period, I perceived that with education, there comes determination which means persistence in doing something that is difficult. Thus, I have gained the attitude in being eager to want to achieve something through academics. I have managed to maintain an average of over 90% in my examinations which has placed me on the Principal's Honor Roll. I have also represented my school at the TVJ's School's Challenge Quiz at the grade nine level and also represented my school at the Annual Spanish Festival where I obtained a gold medal.
With the learning and social facilities at school, brings forth my impeccable respect for school. I am always in attendance except for issues of illness,where being absent is recommended by a doctor.
Receiving this scholarship will greatly enhance my quest for knowledge. At this point I am at a disadvantage due to limited funds, with the inability to access the materials needed to improve my learning. Also, this may put me at a better chance at achieving major education and career goals.
I do understand that others just as qualified will be applying but I should be granted the scholarship because I have maintained the academic standard with the limited resources afforded me by my parents. With granting this scholarship, I guarantee that my studies will be greatly advanced.
This scholarship would not only help me realize my goals but it will also afford me the wherewithal by which I can mentor my peers as well as become an ambassador for my school in the field of getting young males to see the importance of education. With this scholarship I will mentor and give them positive reasons to get them emulate the good.
In writing this essay, it has come to me that with or without this scholarship I will continue to thrive for excellence and be a role model to my peers, both at school and in my community. I will hold steadfast to the values inculcated in me by not only my parents but the teachers who continue to mold,nurture and direct my educational path.
