Choose Your Words Wisely!

Shout it Out Rarely does a person get an opportunity to address a nation or the world; it’s usually during times of great hardship or war. Even then, few are able to capture our attention for any length of time. It takes a certain skill, but given the right circumstances and speaker, words can start a movement or create change. Words can rally a nation to stand together or they can insight others to take action against injustice. Words can also provide comfort in a time of chaos, such as those spoken by President Bush addressing our nation after 9/11: Continue Reading…

Mortifying Moments That Make Me Laugh

Funny Moments I can still hear the entire high school student body roaring with laughter. They pointed and laughed while I darted across the gymnasium floor looking for a safe haven to hide. Everything had been going so well up to that point. Lisa and I had spent hours working on our mummy costumes for the senior homecoming skit.

Start Clowning Around With Scholarships!

Clowning Around Did you know that the first week of August is National Clown Week? If you have coulrophobia (a fear of clowns), that probably isn’t welcome news.

The term ‘clown’ actually refers to someone who is a klutz or always tripping over his/her own feet – not very scary, right? But throw on a colorful costume, some heavy face paint and a red nose, people lose their minds! Love them or hate them, clowns seem to be everywhere, so to celebrate National Clown Week (no creepy pictures – we promise!), we’ve compiled a few clever scholarships that celebrate clowns and their original intention of making people smile and laugh!
