This scholarship would help me continue my journey into the early childhood education world. Children learn very rapidly from the moment they are born until they reach kindergarten. There are so many teachable and beautiful moments that gives me such great pride. Even at the age of three and to see that aha moment in their eyes, it’s proud moment for me. This is how I know that this is my life’s calling and passion. This scholarship would mean the world to me and benefit my educational goals.

I am currently working towards completing my degree in early childhood education. I have worked in the field of early childhood education for almost four years. I am currently taking a break to stay home with my new born daughter and home school my four year old daughter due to the pandemic. Since I do not have an income at this time, paying for my college courses has become difficult, but I am determined to complete my degree and teaching license, so that I can fulfill my dream of serving my community as an early childhood teacher.

I would love to use this scholarship to attend college and be able to change the world through early childhood education.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way?
