The importance of being involved in school and community

It’s important to be involved in school activities and community. Not only do colleges want to know what you are doing in your free time, they want to know that you will be a great addition to their campus community!  A student who’s involved in community and school programs and services is more likely to develop leadership skills, ambition, integrity and citizenship.  Additionally, by being part of the community, it allows you the opportunity to make important connections with community leaders that may help you in the future.

These qualities can be instrumental in qualifying for scholarships!  Check out these scholarship opportunities below. If you meet the criteria, you may be able to win up to $10,000 a year in scholarship money!
