Provide examples where appropriate. Grammar, punctuation and spelling are important. If you wish to submit your answers in a separate document, attach document in the file upload box at the end the discussion questions.

Please obtain a recommendation letter from a school teacher or administrator or community leader. The letter should include how the writer knows you and should detail your qualifications. The writer should include a telephone number so that the letter may be verified and follow-up questions may be asked if necessary. Upload the letter here, or send it to Van O'Cain at 808 Knox Abbott Drive, Cayce, SC 29033
