Three years in the past I would have by no means even dreamed of doing one thing like this. Numerous issues have modified since then nonetheless. Graduating highschool instigates a substantial amount of change. The greatest change will be considered one of in all probability two issues; staying in class or pursuing increased schooling. Today school is essential, and for us rodeo opponents, school is a really doable alternative after highschool. For me it was a simple alternative. I’m nonetheless banking on making my residing within the enviornment. An issue quickly arose when I mentioned this with my dad and mom.
“You know Teddy, you won’t be able to rodeo all your life right?” My Mom acknowledged.
“Dang, that’s what I was hoping to do” I Replied.
Well prior to now two years I acquired harm a couple of occasions and I nonetheless don’t need to get an actual job so I’m a school child now. And you realize what? School actually is not that dangerous. What many college students and oldsters could not understand is simply how straightforward is it to get scholarships to go to school. The better part is simply what number of there are on the market and what number of totally different entities award them. Scholarships can come immediately from excessive faculties and faculties, authorities foundations, personal donors, rodeo associations and companies. Another place they arrive from that I came upon about simply this yr is rodeo committees. Not as a lot in Canada to date, however I am trying. The Alberta High School Rodeo Association has to be top-of-the-line associations in North America for highschool college students to study, rodeo and set themselves up for a profitable future in school and within the rodeo enviornment.
