SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (MARKET WIRE) — August 26, 2013 — Papercheck, a leader in Elite Level Editing and proofreading services, announced that Andrea Person is the Summer 2013 Charles Shafaé Scholarship Fund winner. Person is a rising sophomore at George Mason University, where she is completing a degree in nursing at the College of Health and Human Services.
Andrea has always been interested in health services, particularly the nursing field, since her mother and sister are both nurses. Her role model, her older brother, was the first in her family to graduate from college and just recently sat for his Pharmacy College Admission Test. She hopes to build on her family’s experience and expertise in the health field and develop a career in natal nursing near Chesapeake, Virginia, her hometown.
In her spare time, Andrea loves shopping, baking, and anything and everything fashion; but she has stayed busy during her freshman year, volunteering through Leadership & Community Engagement, LLC, which focuses on social change issues such as health care, homelessness, animal welfare, and the environment. She has participated in events such as the AIDS Walk and has even helped to improve a local beach by rebuilding its fence. Through that same program, she met her favorite teacher, Wendy Wagner, who teaches leadership classes and is the director of the program. She made Andrea’s first year an easy transition into college life and inspired her to become a junior volunteer at her local hospital. Andrea maintains a 3.4 cumulative GPA and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
Andrea’s winning essay focused on contrasting different states’ gun control laws and their effects on issues like crime and murder rates. Papercheck received over 100 submissions for the summer scholarship award.
To be eligible, a student must be an undergraduate in good standing at an accredited, four-year U.S. university or college and maintain at least a 3.2 GPA. Each scholarship applicant must write an essay of at least 1,000 words on a subject selected by Papercheck. Essays are judged on grammar and content.
Papercheck has released a new scholarship topic for winter 2013:
With obesity becoming more and more prevalent in America, it is hard to understand why the government subsidizes corn additives and other unhealthy products. Although increasing food prices and outsourcing paired with rural depopulation have certainly left American agriculture waning, people also need positive government influence on their eating habits.
Please discuss the reason for the subsidies and their impact on this health epidemic, along with other alternative, viable approaches to curb America’s growing problems with its agriculture industry and rampant obesity.
