With this scholarship and the need-based grants I have been awarded, I can complete my education and continue to solve problems within my community. The #1 killer among us young people is in fact this "driving" crisis! As young people we sometimes aren't led the right way, but this isn't about being led the right way, but being the greater impact of this generation. We must change if we want "CHANGE"! I myself, am not scared to make a change when i see fit, whether that's making social media group chats to speaking on the news to traveling and speaking about how we can make a change vs just "trying to make a change. We speak so highly on changing but never take a stand and actually put forth the effort to make this impact happen. Thanks for the opportunity.

I for one have experienced loss due to reckless driving. My uncle lost his life in a car accident, he was drinking and driving and it was felt through our entire family. I push for anyone I am in the vehicle with to put their phone down and to just focus on the road, "I can do the texting for you." I drive for Domino's Pizza and every single day I see so many young people on their phones and driving and I have almost been run off the road due to it, it is NOT okay to just shoot a quick text, please pay attention.

I would love to help be apart of a community that is trying to get rid of reckless driving. My mother has a friend that lost her daughter in a car accident, a semi was not paying any attention to the road and ran a red light. He hit the girls car, and their car flipped. My mothers friends daughter passed away, and the whole community was very devastated for their loss. It is not hard to pay attention to the road, you have not only your safety to worry about, but you also have to worry about other people's safety as well. This is why nobody should ever text and drive, or drink and drive. If you do this, you could hurt someone very badly & that would devastate their loved ones. We need to think before we get behind the wheel!

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