My mom got pregnant at age 17 and my dad dropped out of high school to leave for the Navy. My dad decided to go back to school because he knew it was important, sadly he didn't finish any higher than his Associates of Arts.

This scholarship smells like opportunity and success!

And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
