There are a number of students graduating from James Logan this year. Some of them have scholarships, but not as much as Nicholas Staib. He has eight of them.
Senior, Nicholas Staib, leads Logan with the most scholarships, with Justin Chan and Nargis Hakeem right behind him with five scholarships apiece.
"It feels good, like an accomplishment," said¯ Nicholas Staib on receiving the scholarships. "It wasn't very easy. You need to write a lot of essays, and paper work, and meet deadlines to stay on top of the scholarship."
Staib applied for scholarships from Metro PCS, Comcast, 6 New Haven Unified School District scholarships, The Italian Catholic Federation, J&G Trees, Cabrillo Club, Cargil Salt, FACES, Robert C. Byrd, and Washington Hospital Employers Association. He has won scholarships from the Italian Catholic Federation, Sons of Italy, Italian American Federation, NHUSD Teachers Association Dependence Scholarship, Comcast, two from the Santa Clara University, and one from Washington Hospital.
For those who'd like to win scholarships the Staib way, his "advice is to apply for as many (scholarships) as you can get. Look for ones that you can use similar stuff for," he said. " It helps to have community hours too. A lot of students have good grades. but not community service hours."
"Make yourself stand out," he advised.
Nicholas Staib plans on going to Santa Clara University and he is undeclared on what he's going to take.
