Our “GoEnnounce Yourself” Scholarship, sponsored by Upromise, awards one student $500 each month! This award goes to a student who’s doing a great job showcasing who he/she is, by sharing school related e-nnouncement updates with Followers on their GoEnnounce Student Page. We are happy to e-nnounce our January winner, the passionate learner… Ruby Collins!
Ruby Collins is a senior at Emma Willard School who’s favorite subject is AP Biology. Her interest in the world of science comes from her own experience with a traumatic brain injury. Ruby has a passion for understanding how the brain works and plans to study neuroscience in college. A huge advocate of giving back to the community, you can find Ruby putting in time with American Red Cross as a blood drive volunteer, being co-head of the Pride Alliance at her school, or at her local hospital were she serves as a therapy dog handler. Ruby also prides herself in participating in a large variety of activities including dog training, coaching gymnastics, songwriting, and tutoring! She’s already been honored with a few awards which include the Annis Science and Teaching Enrichment Program Grant and a Michigan Music Education Association Honors Composition Concert Winner!
In the month of January, Ruby really impressed us with the variety of her e-nnouncements. She shared a recent acceptance letter to Drew University. Congrats, Ruby! It looks like she might still be weighing her options though, as she also e-nnounced a college visit to check out other schools on her list. She even managed to make a history and science lesson out of her cross country trip. While most students probably used Martin Luther King Day for a relaxing day off, Ruby spent hers attending the movie “Selma” with her school and participating in thought provoking group discussion afterwords. What a great (and educational) way to spend the holiday! She ended the month by highlighting a 97% she scored on a recent spanish test. Great work Ruby!
