    Julius Quentin Jackson Scholarship
    My name is Miranda Alvarez, and I am from Amarillo Texas. I attend Caprock High School, and currently ranked in the top 5% of my class. Grades have always been an important aspect of who I am now. With my strive for good grades, I have been provided with many great opportunities that have helped shape my future career goals. I plan to attend either Amarillo College or WT to achieve my goal of graduating with a Bachelor’s in Science of Nursing and ultimately become a travel nurse. I am applying for this scholarship for the purpose of earning enough money to be able to attend college full time and accomplish my educational goal of earning my Bachelor's degree. This scholarship will help me carry out that goal by providing financial assistance for the expenses that are incurred during the journey, seeing as neither my parents or I have the immediate money for it. To be able to attend college, means having the financial resources available to do so and to be able to succeed academically without having much worry over how I will pay for college. All throughout my high school years, I have been very involved in community service based organizations. These organizations have expanded my love for volunteering and helping those in need that are in my community. I am currently in the National Honor Society with a leadership position, National Technical Honor Society, vice president of Student Council, as well as Key Club, and Akademia, Caprock High-School’s own honors society. Both NHS and NTHS are community based volunteering organizations. To volunteer out in my community wherever help is needed brings me great joy. As a part of the Student Council, we help around our school and offer help to students in need. We also work in partnership with small businesses to provide clothes, hygiene products, and blankets for the homeless and local pet shelters. Aside from school related organizations, I have currently sought out another volunteer opportunity that I can do every month on my own. This organization is called Fill With Hope, and their end goal of providing elementary school kids in need with snacks has really inspired me to continue with them. Another important aspect of my life has been my drive to improve my social skills greatly. I would still be the quiet and reserved person if it weren't for my realization that being a shy person wasn’t going to get me very far in life. I have been actively improving that with every day that passes by involving myself more with my community and taking every opportunity that is offered to me. I can now say that I’m confident in my social skills. Lastly I would like to take this opportunity to thank the donors for contributing to this scholarship and providing opportunities that would help students accomplish their educational goals. I would also like to express my gratitude towards the selection committee for their time, effort, and consideration of my application.
    Rompe Las Fronteras Scholarship
    As a first generation student, my overall goals are to graduate high school and attend college in order to make my parents proud and accomplish the goals they could not. However, my personal goals are to graduate college where I hope to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Nursing and ultimately become a travel nurse. My name is Miranda Alvarez, and I am from Amarillo Texas. I attend Caprock High School, and currently I am ranked in the top 5% of my class. Grades have always been an important aspect of who I am now. With my strive for good grades, I have been provided with many great opportunities that have helped shape my future career goals of impacting positively the lives of others whether it be out in my community or in a hospital setting as a nurse. As far as I remember, we lived with all the luxuries we could ever imagine. The love of our family. Food on our table. Clothes on our back. A roof over our heads. From my viewpoint, that's all one could ever need. Yet being a child to undocumented and immigrant parents has really put into perspective how hard they’ve worked in order to provide us with those luxuries. We didn’t really have much when I was growing up. My parents have had to work physically demanding jobs in order to provide for us. We lived in a small 2 bedroom mobile home and with 5 people living in the house, we had to resort to the living room to sleep in. From an early age I was told by my parents that they wouldn't be able to provide for my college. This only encouraged me more to try my hardest in school and maintain high grades from elementary all the way through high school. Which is where I found my passion for health care and it only flourished more with all the opportunities that were presented to me. I am applying for this scholarship for the purpose of earning enough money to be able to attend college full time and accomplish my educational goal of earning my Bachelor's degree. This scholarship will help me carry out that goal by providing financial assistance for the many expenses that are incurred during the journey, seeing as neither my parents or I have the immediate money for it. To be able to attend college, means having the financial resources available to do so and to be able to succeed academically without having much worry over how I will pay for college. Due to my parents lack of funds for my college, financial aid is greatly needed for my college endeavors. To be able to attend college means having the proper amount of money to do so and to be able to succeed academically without having much worry over how I will pay for college. Lastly I would like to take this opportunity to thank the donors for contributing to this scholarship and providing opportunities that would help students accomplish their educational goals. I would also like to express my gratitude towards the selection committee for their time, effort, and consideration of my application.
