“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” - Victor Frankl 

We can’t control the circumstances of our birth, the situation we are raised in, or events of the past, but we can control how we react to these challenges, especially in the classroom. 

Our education system often rewards students who excel at memorizing facts and formulas, instead of those individuals who develop critical thinking skills and self-awareness.

But in life, memorizing facts and formulas won’t allow you to succeed in this world. Instead, it’s the ability to think independently, solve ambiguous problems, and find strength in the face of hardship and adversity that determines whether or not you’ll succeed in this world.

As one small way to support the tenacious and ambitious independent thinkers of our world, the Harold Reighn Moxie Scholarship will be awarded to one high school senior who will be the first in their family to attend college. This opportunity exists as one of our many high school senior scholarship opportunities.

All first-generation students who are currently high school seniors and plan to attend college in the fall of 2021 are eligible to apply. As part of your application, you will have the opportunity to tell us more about your story, the adversities you’ve encountered, and your plans for the future.

Selection Criteria:
Essay, Perserverance, Determination, Grit, Ambition
Published February 4, 2021
Essay Topic

Please tell us a little bit of your story. What adversities have you encountered that have changed the way you live your life? What do you hope to achieve in the future with these life lessons in mind?
