Andrew Power has been selected by the Arkansas Alumni Association to receive the 2011 “Roads” Scholarship. A resident of Springdale, Power has proved to be a significant leader in many of his high schools’ student organizations. Not only has he served as president of Youth for Christ, but he has served as Student Government president, Fellowship of Christian Athletes president, a member of the Principal’s Council, and a member of Senior Class Council, just to name a few.
His determination to maintain good grades and a strong leadership style have culminated into various skills that Power wishes to utilize. When choosing to attend the University of Arkansas, he immediately knew that the university would allow him to accomplish the goals he has set for himself, as well as make use of the talents he possesses.
“I am so thankful that your association has chosen me to receive the ‘Roads’ Scholarship. It will be a great help to further my post-secondary education,” he said.
With plans to major in social studies and minor in education, Power hopes to one day become a teacher. Finding enjoyment in being able to teach younger generations, he believes, “our society should have more teachers; not necessarily those who take upon the formal profession of teaching, just people who are willing to share wisdom and life lessons with those around them,” he said. Seeing this as an opportunity to travel, Power recognizes that teaching is a “universal occupation” and it can take him all over the world.
Although it may seem that he will be devoting all of his time on campus to studying and achieving his goal of becoming a teacher, he has other plans in mind that will enable him to get involved. Grateful that he will be close to home, Power hopes to continue mentoring and leading a group of boys, at his church, as it is important that he be a positive role model for them.
“This scholarship means so much to me because money is scarce in my family since I have two other siblings who are in college, and so I thank you yet again, for your generosity. It will not be forgotten!”
