My name is McKenzie Guillory and I am a senior at Eunice High School. I am the oldest of five and I am working very hard to further my education after high school. I am currently enrolled in a dual-enrollment program through LSUE and plan to transfer to Xavier University-New Orleans to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. My inspiration of becoming a nurse comes from seeing my mother work her way from being a certified nursing assistant at the age of 20 yrs then continuing her education and becoming an LPN at the age of 22 yrs. She is currently enrolled in her third semester of the Associates of Nursing Program at LSUE at the age of 34 yrs and will complete her schooling in May 2021. She has taught me that no matter what obstacle is thrown in my way, there's always a way around it to better myself especially in gaining a higher education. I have maintained a g.p.a. of 3.8-4.0 throughout my schooling and continue to push for better. If I was awarded this scholarship it would be put towards furthering my education and would be greatly appreciated.

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? [...]
