KaKY presents…College Night at Richmond Community High School was held Thursday October 16, 2014. We had over 15 colleges from Virginia and North Carolina in attendance. Some colleges included: Virginia Union University, Virginia Commonwealth University, North Carolina A&T, University of Richmond, Longwood University, Bryant and Stratton and more. We were also honored to have special guest speaker Micah “Bam Bamm” White open the event with an inspirational speech. His encouraging words provided the youth with a real life look into the importance if making good decisions. He also stressed the importance of the friends you may choose and how they can impact your future. Finally, Mr. White left us with a quote by Mahatma Gandhi, ” Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.
Yet another successful event planned by Kollege and Kareer 4 Youth. If you wish to plan any events for your school or youth organization, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pay attention to details for a high quality essay for admissions and scholarships.
Get organized. Brainstorm to generate some good ideas and then create an outline to help you get started.
Demonstrate originality and creativity. To catch the attention of the reviewers, find a hook that will get the reader interested right away.
Show, don’t tell. For example, if you’re describing an activity you participated in, don’t describe it in general terms. Be specific! What duties did you perform? What affect did it have on your life or the lives of others?
Develop a theme that fits the school or scholarship. What sort of student is the college or the scholarship program looking for? Include elements in your essay that complement the college’s or sponsor’s expectation (without pretending to be someone you aren’t).
Turn in a professional-looking essay. Write a second draft to catch mistakes and better organize your thoughts. If possible, type and doublespace your essay. Check spelling and grammar. Also, share your essay with friends, family or teachers for another proofread.
