This year many students will apply for scholarships but the number of
scholarships will not even approach the demand of the students. In this
situation it is up to the scholarship agencies to decide who is the most
deserving of these funds. I believe that I am the most qualified applicant for
the R.C. Easley National Scholarship. I have displayed excellence in the
classroom, in extra-curricular activities, and I believe with the education I
receive I will benefit society greatly.
Throughout my high school career I have prided myself on a difficult
class load and consistently good grades. While at Horicon High School I feel I
have challenged myself more than any other student. Instead of taking the usual
study hall I have elected to fill that time with another class. I will graduate
this summer with a total of 31.25 credits; more than any of my classmates. I
have maintained a GPA of 3.938 during school while taking difficult courses such
as physics, calculus, AP microeconomics, AP macroeconomics, and computer science.
Even though I carry a heavy load of classes I have found time for extra-
curricular activities. I have been involved in golf, Science Olympiad, math
team, Business World, T.E.A.M.S., and I have been involved in various band
functions. I also have had a part-time job at the local grocery store since the
summer after my sophomore year. I usually work approximately 20 hours a week
during the school year.
With the education I will receive while attending a world-class
university I am sure I will have a positive effect on society. Being an
engineer I will be involved in designing many products that affect everyone. I
will use my acquired skills to make sure every product I work on is the most
beneficial to society.

A Case Study In Diversity: India And RomaniaA Case Study In Diversity: India And Romania The WWW of most URLs (Uniform/Universal Resource Locators) literally translated, means the WORLD WIDE WEB.

A Tour of the Pentium Pro Processor MicroarchitectA Tour of the Pentium Pro Processor Microarchitecture Introduction One of the Pentium Pro processor\'s primary goals was to significantly exceed the performance of the 100MHz Pentium processor while being manufactured on the same semiconductor process.

The Individual And SocietyThe Individual And Society In this paper I will try to explain the puzzle of whether individuals are products of society or society is a product of individuals. I believe that in general, and in the beginning, the answer to this question, is that society is a human product. I will start by presenting early man, the hunter and gatherer as an early form of society, but lacking critical qualities of a society. Then I will continue to support my theory by analyzing the beginning of known society som
Academic AttitudeAcademic Attitude During the course of a student\'s progression through academia, he must learn that the teacher cannot think for him. It is essential for a student to free his mind, allowing thought to flow.

The student must also become active in his learning. Therefore taking his academic potential to the higher

Diego Rivera (1886-1957)Diego Rivera (1886-1957) Diego Rivera\'s art was one of the columns on which one of the strongest movements in american painting was to find support: mexican muralism. His art greatly depends on a vocabulary born from a mixture between Gauguin and the aztec and mayan sculptures. His works range from murals and pencil drawings to book illustrations and political writings. Diego Rivera, using simplified forms and vivid colors, brilliantly rescued the precolombine past, as well as the most importan

To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fiber of national life, infecting the Congress, the courts, the policeman on the beat, the man in the street. It is one of history\'s great ironies that Woodrow Wilson, who was re- elected as a peace candidate in 1916, led America into the first worl

Logical ReasoningLogical Reasoning We think that we are all logical creatures, that we can attain truth by our logical reasoning, but historically, this has not been the case. Every scientific advance somehow exemplifies the defective state of the art of reasoning of the time it was written. (pg.62) Thus, we are not perfectly logical creatures, in fact, most of us are content with our beliefs without logical facts; and since we gain logical facts through experience, experience only serves to continuously frust
