Friends, readers, and anyone else who happens to stop by . . . yes, this is a shameless plea to help out my son Charlie with one of his scholarship pursuits!
As you know from some of my other posts, I have a senior in high school this year, and he is starting on college applications and searching out those all-important scholarships. He has plans to major in International Relations, with an interest in multiple languages (entering his 5th year of Spanish, and has shown a talent for picking up other languages through language software and online resources — Russian, Mandarin, German, French, and a little Arabic now!). He has several schools of interest, both public and private; but frankly, given the price tag of a college education, the final decision will likely turn on the best net cost after scholarship and grant aid.
So. . . . here’s the ask: Charlie entered a scholarship photo contest, where finalists from each round are largely determined by a popularity contest. On behalf of my son, I am asking that you vote for Charles Bray’s photo and encourage friends, family and fellow bloggers to do the same by September 16 — help him win a $500 college scholarship for school next fall!
