Senior Scholarship

by M. J. Joachim

School was driving Sylvia crazy. Every year, she looked forward to summer vacation. This year seemed particularly difficult, especially with so many online classes with syllabus’s that strove to keep each student busy for hours.

Time management wasn’t her issue. Sylvia strove to manage her time effectively. Still, she couldn’t force the issue and make things happen in a timely manner. School administrators were little to no help. This was on her; she had to step up to the plate and do something to finish out the year on a high note.

“Son,” she said. “I’m going to make things easier on you this year. I know high school is hard and I’ve always expected you to work a few hours since you were sixteen years old. This year, however, you don’t have to work, so you can slide through all your classes and graduate with that scholarship you’ve worked so hard for. I know it hasn’t been easy, but you can still get it, if you spend more time on schoolwork.”

Thank you for visiting FlashTyme.
