Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, GA
I am in the top 10% of seniors at my school with a 3.96 GPA. Most of my grades have been high A's, with few exceptions (i.e., my freshman Physics class). I have taken gifted/advanced classes since I was in fifth grade and went to a small Catholic school; throughout my entire public high school career, I have taken a total of 10 CPA classes (College Prep Advanced) and 5 AP classes, as well as having taken a class at Berry College last semester for Sophomore english (in which I'm pretty sure I have a high B) and will be taking a class at Berry during this semester for Cultural Anthropology. I was nominated and inducted into the National Honors Society my junior year. I made it to the State Interviews for the Governor's Honors Program.
This is my second year of being the Vice-President of my school's chapter of the National Art Honors Society/Art Club, in which we complete community service projects, hold Art Shows for the school, and convince more people in our area to find a love and interest in the arts. I participated in a contest at the local McDonald's for a "parking space mural"; I received second place for my painting. I have taken art classes for as long as they have been available to me; I took Visual Arts my sophomore year, ceramics 1 in my junior year, and am taking drawing 2 this year (my skill level was enough to allow me to do so). I have been a part of the intermediate/advanced Choral program all four years of high-school, and have played guitar for five years in multiple bands, as well as for my chorus.
During my first three years of high school, I was highly active in the Catholic Youth Organization (essentially a youth group- it was disbanded early 2012) in which we did service projects at least once a month, though often more. We annually took Thanksgiving dinner to the local Youth Open Door Home, we would help re-paint/organize/fix up elderly parishioner's houses, we participated in rallies and walks, and did many, many other things. During my Junior and Senior years of high school, I have had the privilege to be a part of the National Honors Society, in which we do multiple community service projects every semester, including walks (i.e., for Alzheimer's, local Children's homes, etc.), and other participation projects (i.e., Stop Hunger Now!) , as well as much more.
