As someone that is in jail I understand. In my prison most people were arrested for driving under the influence.

In my city, we have many incidents with reckless and distracted driving. Everyday, innocent lives are taken by this kind of driving. I applied for this scholarship because I want to know how can we solve these problems so less lives are taken by these drivers.

Something that I did was show how reckless driving also affects those around you.

If I were to do a song, would I be aloud to use a premade/edited/remixed instrumental for the music?

Athena A  on 4/29/2016 11:28:16 AM

I'm going to apply to this because I feel like our community lacks responsibility while driving, safety is always important.

Roger U  on 4/24/2016 12:26:26 PM

I lost my best friend to a hit-and-run. I'm glad they made a scholarship to make the public conscious of a growing problem in our community.

Apprenticeships No Longer Just for "Blue Collar" Employment

June 25, 2019

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

The U.S. Department of Labor is proposing to advance the development of high-quality, "white-collar" apprenticeship programs, run by business groups, colleges and other entities.

The "earn while you learn" model will enable individuals to acquire skills without accruing any student debt. [...]

Harvard Revokes Parkland Shooting Suvivor's Admissions Offer

June 18, 2019

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

Harvard revoked more admissions offers - this time involving 10 students who participated in a Facebook group called "Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens." Jokes about abusing children and the Holocaust and insulting comments about different racial and ethnic groups were found in the group, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Earlier this month, Harvard also rescinded an admission offer to Kyle Kashuv who, when he was 16 years old, used inflammatory and racist language, including the N-word, right before the Parkland shooting at his school, Stoneman Douglas High School. The shootings have since "changed him and made him more mature," he claims. Kashuv became famous for his conservatism, pro-gun and pro-Trump activism which he believes, represent a different view on how to prevent future, like tragedies.

In a recent Twitter post, he apologized for his past comments and stated that, "We were 16-year-olds making idiotic comments, using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible...I'm embarrassed by it, but I want to be clear that the comments I made are not indicative of who I am or who I've become in the years since." Shortly thereafter, Harvard looked into his case and eventually revoked his admissions offer. Though university personnel appreciate his "candor and expressions of regret," Harvard "takes seriously" the "qualities of maturity" and of "character" of the students it admits. Despite appealing the revocation, Kashuv was turned down. In his defense, Kashuv argues that, "throughout its history, Harvard's faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots and anti-Semites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn't possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution. But I don't believe that. I believe that institutions and people can grow. I've said that repeatedly." In your opinion, should Kashuv have had his admissions offer revoked based on something he did when he was 16? Why or why not? [...]

A Wiccan Professor at St. Bonaventure sued the university and her alma mater for discrimination, alleging that she was not allowed to advance in her career because she is a woman and a witch.
