First, let’s congratulate Key Club for raising $300 for UNICEF!  The money that was raised by the Key Club members will be for the children in Africa.     


Coming up this week is the making of fleece scarves for the homeless in Seattle.  Last year, Evergreen Key Club was recognized for their assidous work and was featured on The West Seattle Herald.  Our goal this year is to complete more than a hundred scarves for the Seattle’s Mission Gospel.  Let’s give Key Club our luck for their youth venture to “kill the chill”.

Using Key Club in College and Scholarship Essays

by Lam-Ha Dang

For most seniors, the two months of March and April will be two very dramatic, if not climatic, months of the year.  It is the time that most colleges and scholarships release their admissions or award decisions.  As a senior myself, I’ve been through the process of applying and patiently awaiting my letters, hopefully bringing good news, so I complied a  few tips for filling out applications and especially for writing essays. 

Many colleges and scholarships, as you may know, do not look for academically incredible students, but rather well-rounded citizens.  Colleges want to know that besides being a stellar scholar, you are also involved in your community, using what you learned in the classroom to change the world for the better.  They need to know that you will be a positive and unique contribution to their student body and campus.  Likewise, scholarships may emphasize community service and leadership, but that does not mean a great academic background will not help.  Be sure you place academics in top priority.

Luckily you are a Key Club member, so you have many expriences to draw from when presenting yourself to the judging panels.  Obviously, you have showed that you care about your community and a leader at school, but that is not enough. 

Here are some tips when writing that essay or essays.
