The Only One I am the only one in my family to ever go to a University. Out of 2 grandparents, 6 children, and 10 grandchildren, I am the only grandchild to go to a University. If it wasn’t for my high school accountant teacher, I almost wouldn’t have been a BRONCO!!!!

YBMSN Continued I am the only one out of the original Four freshman left on the Executive board of this GoRSO. This organization has contributed to my academic success.
Resident Assistant Position During this year, I have earned a Resident Assistant position. The position pays for my room and board (around $4000) as long as I’m an RA. The position will give me work experience that anyone would be blessed to have.
Resident Assistant (Continued) The purpose of the Resident Assistant (RA) is to enhance the quality of life in the residence halls while supporting the academic mission of the university for the students in that community. The position requires an individual who is flexible enough to assume a variety of roles as dictated by the changing needs of students. It is crucial that an individual be able to relate well to others and handle administrative responsibilities. The RA is more than just a friendly presence; she/he is the crucial link in creating an environment in which students develop independence and learn to live cooperatively with others.
Final Note Only success is seen in my future if I continue on the path I’m on now. It’s A Great Day To Be A Bronco!
