The Eleanor Roosevelt High School Senior Awards Night was on Thursday, May 14, 2015. We were honored to be able to present our Eleanor Roosevelt High School Share Your Passion Scholarship to three impressive young students. This year’s Eleanor Roosevelt Scholarship Winners were Martha Rosario, Kyaw Kyaw Aung, and Eui Kyung (Pearl) Rhee.
We were delighted when we received a lot of wonderful entries this year from many inspiring young students. We originally had the intention of selecting one winner; however, after reading all the entries, we knew we had to select our three winners
Martha Rosario wrote an inspired essay about her desire to improve the environment and make the world a better place for us all. She wrote about how she used to disregard her surroundings and the pollution and litter that surrounded her. However, once she put things in focus and realized that the Earth was her habitat and a place that should be cared for and respected, that’s when she started to see things through a whole new perspective. While she acknowledges that there is not a lot of money to be made with her chosen career; she feels that the satisfaction of knowing she is doing good, will make up for that lower pay.
Kyaw Kyaw Aung wrote about his admiration for his dad and his desire to become an engineer like his father. He originally did not fully understand his father’s need to try to fix everything; he felt it was foolish when he could easily call a professional and have them finish the work a lot more quickly. However, he writes about how his impression of his father changed one day when he was able to see what a beneficial asset it could be to know how to fix all kinds of things. He soon began to understand his father’s intrinsic desire to take things into his own hands and figure out how they work.
Eui Kyung (Pearl) Rhee wrote about her aspiration to play the flute and create beautiful music for others to enjoy, as well as to become a flute teacher, and/or a music therapist. She took us through the journey of her flute playing. Her passion for the flute was apparent right from the start; she talked about how she spent many hours in her bathroom practicing the flute so as to not disturb the neighbors. Eventually, when she joined the praise team at her church and began playing for individuals with special needs. Initially, she turned a blind eye to them and did not really acknowledge them; however, one day, she decided to pay attention to the audience she was playing for and that is when she saw how much joy her music brought them.
We want to give a huge thank you to these three wonderful and impressive young students, along with the rest of the scholarship participants; they inspire us to continue to devote our time and energy to working to help the youth in our community. We are sure that nothing but wonderful things await these young adults.
Aside from thanking the scholarship participants, we also would like to thank Eleanor Roosevelt High School, Pamela Snow (the Scholarship and Senior Awards Night Coordinator), and Jenna Gutman (School Counselor). We have nothing but great things to say about them. They dedicate their lives to helping the students in their school succeed and attain all of their goals. Overall, we really appreciate the students, teachers, counselors, and parents at Eleanor Roosevelt High School and we look forward to working with all of you for many years to come.
