Miss Exeter Candidate Essay: Bryce Maurer

Bryce Maurer
Sponsored by Monarch Ford

Hi, my name is Bryce Maurer and I am a senior at Exeter Union High School. Growing up in the small town of Exeter and attending EUHS has given me the opportunity to excel both academically and athletically. Thankfully, the list does not stop there. Through out my journey as a high school student, I have been presented with leadership opportunities that have led me to become a better member of the Exeter community.

I have always been driven when it comes to academics. I hold a 4.3 accumulative grade point average and will have taken a total of 7 AP classes and 2 college accredited courses by the time I graduate in June.

Although I am a very dedicated student, I am also a very dedicated athlete, participating on the Girls Varsity Soccer and Swim Team. I was a starting varsity soccer player and swimmer my freshman year.

I have Exeter Union High School to thank for giving me leadership opportunities that most students at big schools don’t get the pleasure of partaking in. These opportunities have given me a chance to have an impact on my school. By the end of my senior year I will have completed 3 years of Leadership Class. Taking this course has not only given me confidence as an individual but has also taught me the basic core principals of being a leader on and off campus. I used these values when I became sophomore, junior, and senior Class President. These leadership roles entailed planning the Sadie Hawkins dance my sophomore year and prom my junior year. In addition to Leadership, I was also a part of the EUHS Mock Trial Team my Freshman and Junior year where I competed on the Prosecution and Direct Teams. I am looking forward to this year’s Mock Trial season where I will be participating and competing in a Lawyer role.

Everything that Exeter High School has taught me has led me to make an impact within our community. I did not want to limit my ability to make change just within the school, so I decided to get involved with two organizations. The first one is the Clinic Access examination that I participated in over summer with the Open Arms House. My job was to go around to the free clinics in Tulare County, undercover, to make sure they are knowledgeable, informed and unbiased, and that they were teaching and treating teenagers the correct way. As a result I decided to start the Community Cares Club on campus. Our mission as a club is not only to teach high school students about the importance of non-profits  but to also get students involved with them. Connecting Exeter Union High School students with the local non-profits is how I will make an impact on both the students and the community.

I am honored to be a candidate in the 2017 Miss Exeter Scholarship Program.
