Homeschool Graduate Attends Georgetown University for Almost NothingMay 31st, 2008 | By Jessica Parnell | Category: General Homeschool Posts, Issues in Homeschooling
There is one homeschool student who has impressed me from the first year I met him. When I conducted his eighth grade homeschool evaluation, he was already more articulate than most of the eleventh grade students in my public school classroom, and his passion for politics was unquestionable.
This same student later took my class on student governmental affairs and blew away his fellow classmates. He continued his study of government by attending several leadership conferences in both Harrisburg and our nation’s capital.
Every year, his writing grew more and more sophisticated, and his other academics were equally impressive.
Not a quiet and reserved intellectual, Justin could command the crowd everywhere he went. Funny and passionate, he was never afraid to share his opinion or enter into a debate.
Last year, he qualified as a national merit scholar. His application was so impressive that he was offered a full scholarship to Harvard and a scholarship to Georgetown that made attending there very inexpensive.
Because his ambition is to enter politics, and because he wanted to find ways to impact government now, Justin chose to go to D.C. and attend Georgetown.
Justin is a young man of character, who has a solid foundation–a direct result of his parents’ commitment and dedication.
I have no doubt that he follow his passion and enter politics.
My hope is that someday he will be my president.
