Comments and Congratulations from Teachers

During my thirty-five year teaching career, I have seen many students with outstanding qualities in one area or another. Alex Adams is one of those extraordinary individuals who is a gem no matter what is involved!

It is truly fitting that your organization has chosen her as one of the students to be recognized. She will be thrilled, but humbled to hear the news!

Thank you for what you do!

Jason Li has always gone above and beyond in his academic pursuits. He takes on all extra credit opportunities offered in class and seems to never tire of learning new things. Coaching Jason in Science Olympiad was a rewarding experience as he has tackled some of the most challenging events offered. Jason has proven to be selfless; he is always the first to volunteer or help someone in need. Like all of the Li family, he is self-motivated and exemplifies the notion of a life-long learner. Jason has a very bright future ahead of him. I am sure that this scholarship will be put to good use helping him reach his goals. Iroquois MS is very proud of Jason Li and his accomplishments.

My name is Shelly Clayton. I am an 8th grade language arts teacher at Neil Armstrong Middle School in the Kearsley Community School district in Flint, Michigan. I have been teaching fifteen years and I am always humbled and feel privileged to work with such exemplary students. One such student is Dylan Brewer. Dylan is a student that always keeps himself striving to accomplish any goal he may sets for himself. Dylan's integrity in the classroom as well as his commitment to his studies is outstanding. Dylan always goes above and beyond the "normal" classroom expectations or guidelines in a given project. His creativity and desire to learn and excel at everything he does is to be commended. It was a great honor to have had the opportunity to work with such a dedicated and responsible young man. I want to congratulate Dylan for receiving the USAASF scholarship and to wish him luck as he continues his journey with his education.

Dawn Suda wrote about Victoria Maches. Yay! This makes me SO HAPPY. I encourage a lot of our seniors to apply for this as I have seen (this is my second time) our students win money. I love your program and pump it as much as I can. I mostly want to thank you for sending the school notice. Once they graduate they go away to college and we do not get to know what they won. So thank you so much for this consideration.

All of Rachel Jarvis’ current and former middle school teachers are delighted that Rachel’s academic and extra-curricular activities are being recognized with this scholarship. Rachel is very much business-like, mature, and ambitious in her academic studies. She is considered by everyone to be an “ideal student” with regard to her approach to learning and classroom activities. Those character traits, added to her intellect make her an incredible student. Rachel is very involved in all aspects of the middle school competitions and activities. She approaches new contests and experience very positively seeking to “grow” from each and every new activity. Her positive attitude and hard work have resulted in her being a member of all of Lincoln’s city-wide middle school musical groups. Rachel is a terrific student and very deserving of one of your scholarships. Rachel’s maturity and intellect will result in her making wise choices for the use of the scholarship money.

I am so honored my student, Kelsey Kershaw, was chosen to be recognized. She is an excellent student that works hard daily.
