Message From Sir Zachary “B.S.O.D.” Wyatt II
Congratulations! My name is Founder Sir Zachary Wyatt, and the Wisdom Scholarship is awarded on my behalf. As a Wisdom Scholarship winner, you possess the ability to understand when is the best time to use the knowledge you have gained. Each situation you encounter will require a different response and being able to diagnose the best response will separate you from just being smart but being wise. While it is true that wisdom comes with age and exercising the practice of executing wise choices originates now. Use this to further your understanding of sage “being wise”. I truly believe that in order to attain the Wisdom Scholarship you must possess the qualities of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment all the qualities of being wise. These traits I deem necessary in order to win the coveted Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity Inc. Wisdom Scholarship. So congratulations to the winners!

Application Essay Example
(Not in APA Format without Cover Page)
As a soon to be adult, the common cliché that I have heard in my community ever since I was in primary school is to make my parents proud. Abuse of office is so rampant in almost every ministry my mom and father argued one morning because he did not like how she was treated in the choir. I am therefore determined to bring the change in my society: I believe that because I am the one who bears the vision, then I should be in the front line for its implementation. The intention of this essay is to define the concept of fidelity and then discuss the reasons as to why I am determined to distinguish myself as a leader who will implement and promote integrity in my community.
Mihalic (2004) states that the concept of implementing fidelity and Wisdom can be used interchangeably with integrity or adherence. It is concerned with improvement in the implementation of a program. Wisdom ensures that a program is delivered in the exact same way that it was designed and in an efficient and effective manner. There are four main components that must be in place when considering the integrity of a program. The first component is adherence which implies delivery of the program as it was intended. As I view the website of the Lambda Net mentorship also the brotherhood, I was over taken. It took my mind to great detail. And as I want seriously to have a chance to write my essay and receive a scholarship. I am working towards getting assistance for college and I need a scholarship. The second is exposure which involves all the activities involved in the implementation of the program. The third component is quality delivered in the program. Last but not least is responsiveness or level of engagement by the respondents.
I believe in the theory that transformation should start from within before it is transferred to external environment. I am a teen that worked with T mobile, boost mobile and I repair any IT device. Please acknowledge my experience as well my down to earth way to an essay for a chance for a D-R-E-A-M Academy scholarship. I know how to write my essay. My life is fast. Just as well let me share the years I have trained myself to uphold integrity all that I endeavor to do. If I make a promise or a pledge I must fulfill it. Consequently, I have managed to earn the trust of many people in my community both young and old as I grew up here and I saw them grow old, me too. The influence I have on those people and the fact that some look up to me the (new high school freshman) give me no option but to fulfill their expectations. This is but one of the many reasons why I have the strong urge to help people in my community by restoring fidelity, Developing Wisdom through the elders.
So far, with the little resources and leadership opportunities that I have been given, I would say my foundation of the kind of society I visualize. With more support from like-minded people, who can lead me as a young adult and teach me to develop wisdom. For me, it is the wise thing to do if development is to occur; yet the time to bring the change is now before the young generation are consumed with the vice of corruption. I would explain in short My Essay to you I want a brotherhood, no I am not military, but my grades in school are far beyond my peers as one would say please consider me.
