Jacob has maintained a high GPA throughout his high school years and has received many awards in varying subjects, such as being a winner of the "My Community Contest" and attending Math Field Day every year.
“Jacob is always a student to complete his work very thoroughly and completely. Most of the time, he completes his work before it is due and turns to help a fellow student that may be struggling. Jacob is Plant Manager (head of class) in my manufacturing business, Simulated Workplace, where he controls the class and helps others succeed daily. As an active member in SkillsUSA, Jacob is excited to be competing in the SkillsUSA state competition this year.”

My advice to middle school students: “Plan on college as soon as you possibly can. That means doing tours and deciding where you want to go later in life, and taking grades very seriously from freshman year up. The grades you make will strongly influence colleges' decisions later, and some colleges also give scholarships based on your grades and ACT/SAT test scores. Promise scholarship is 1100 on the SAT; work extremely hard for it.”

“Jacob is a very responsible student who works well with others, especially when it comes to accomplishing an assignment. He will take the initiative to pull the class together and get started on a project. Jacob meets deadlines early, allowing extra time to perfect his work. I feel that Jacob should be commended for his hard work on these projects.”
