Student, Ripley - Union - Lewis - Huntington High School, Class of 2016,
The typical student at Ripley Union Lewis Huntington High School faces many hardships. Most students are from low income families with only one parent present. Some live with older relatives such as Grandparents or Aunts and Uncles. Most students would be a first generation college student and overcoming financial and social barriers to attend college would show the determination and dedication the student truly possesses. It is with this dedication I prepare for my college education and am applying for all scholarships I qualify for to ensure that my dreams become a reality.
