As high school is slowly winding down and coming to an end for the seniors this year, many sophomores and juniors are starting to look for colleges to enroll in after graduation. To do so, students need to be able to write a strong resume that they can submit into any college and be proud of. Well, it is no secret that colleges love it when they receive resumes from upcoming high school graduates that have community service hours written down. The reason for this is because that it shows that you take an active part in your community and care for others. My older sister, Katie McLean, said, "If I had not done as much community service, I might not have been able to get into as good of a college as I did." It is important to remember that community service is not only helpful to get into colleges, but it is also just kind and helpful thing to do for others.
