No False Modesty Here


Narcissus was a character in Greek mythology. His nemesis, a fellow named Nemesis, lured Narcissus to a pool of water, where Narcissus fell so in love with his own reflection and was so full of himself that he was unable to stop staring at himself and did so until he died.

The Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus will be awarding ten $1000 college scholarships.

To apply, applicants must have a 2.5 grade point average.

They must write a 250-word essay on their academic plans and career goals.

And they must write another 250-word essay about, to quote the formal process established by the group, “…why you admire your state representative.”

That’s right: to win a scholarship awarded by state representatives applicants must write a brief essay explaining why they admire their state representative.

Nope:  no false modesty here.
