Before every Special Olympics tournament an athlete is chosen to read the Special Olympics Oath, “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” An athlete read this at my first basketball tournament that I attended in eighth grade. I got goose bumps. Although this was directed towards the athletes, I took this advice to heart also and I use this advice to help the athletes I coach. Since 2008 I’ve been an active...





Supplemental Essay: Diversity statement

Palatine, Illinois is a small Chicago suburb decorated with white picket fences surrounding modern styled houses, parks dotted with jungle gyms and tennis courts, and strip malls anchored by Starbucks and Panera Breads. I go to a high school that has a high percentage of caucasian students. My friends consist of country club members and state-bound athletes. This is what I find to be traditional, and what I’ve grown accustomed to. My life may seem perfect to some, but...

I loved feeling part of an enormous family that is involved in the student life, but also the community. During high school I played varsity golf all four years, and tried softball. I am a National Honors Society member too. Also, I volunteered as a Special Olympics coach all four years of high school. These activities have taught me life lessons like how to be cooperative with group and how to be a role model, but also helped me mature....

John G. Breault Memorial Scholarship I walk up to the first tee, or maybe the tenth depending on the match. It was not a new walk I traveled, but this past year as a senior it felt as if every match I was playing was my last, which to me was a challenge. The pressure to play excellently and represent Fremd in a positive, almost elite manner seemed necessary, but obviously it is impossible to be perfect. As my senior...
