While attending Kirkwood Community College I was honored with being accepted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The organization is the international honor society of two-year colleges and academic programs, particularly community colleges and junior colleges. At UNI there is a renewable scholarship of $1,000 to transfer students who are members of the society. I was awarded the scholarship in the fall of 2012 and this is the essay I wrote for it. The topic of the essay was to discuss who we thought was an exceptional leader of our time. I chose Steve Jobs.
