Consequently, I had to work my way through college.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He’s still a teenager, however, and said the normal demands of school and extracurriculars took priority to this quest. “I was still doing other things,” he said. “I did incorporate it into my schedule one way or another, but I just did it whenever I had time.” Those extracurriculars, which include track, basketball and serving as executive president of the National Honors Society, all contributed to making him a well-rounded applicant.

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— DuPage County GOP chairman Zay: ‘For those who want me to tear down and call out members of our Party publicly, that will not happen’
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jim Zay, Chairman of the DuPage County Republican Party, is refusing to condemn fellow Republicans for their financial and material support of DuPage County Board Chair Deb Conroy. Zay’s comments come after Conroy, a well-known leftist who took controversial stances as a state representative, received campaign donations from prominent DuPage County Republicans. See the text of Zay’s letter addressing the donations below: . .Zay’s note to DuPage County Republicans comes after Republican DuPage County Board Member Sam Tornatore donated $1,000 to Conroy’s campaign coffers. Former DuPage County Board member Republican Donald Puchalski also donated $500 to Conroy. Both Tornatore and Puchalski donated to Conroy’s campaign at the same time after receiving financial support from GOP township organizations in Addison. Conroy has also won the favor of Republican Pete DiCianni whose Win Marketing was recently paid $1,230.71 by Conroy’s campaign. The firm provides political strategy and tactics, direct mail, web development and print services in aid of campaigns. DiCianni once said “You know what? (Deb Conroy) is my friend” while running against her for the chairman position in the DuPage County Board of Commissioners election. Zay is also a DuPage County Board Member.)
— Aiding and abetting political enemies who may be personal friends has nothing to do with unifying the GOP from within – Laurie Higgins
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To better understand why the GOP fails again and again and again, focus your gimlet gaze on Illinois’ inept and foolish GOP. Then focus on the microcosm of DuPage County that is slowly turning blue for lack of O2. Recently, campaign donations made by Republican leaders to the campaign of far-left candidate for DuPage County Board, Deb Conroy, generated a warranted backlash against GOP leadership in DuPage County. In a desperate effort to curb the controversy, DuPage County Republican Chair Jim Zay sent a letter to DuPage County Republicans in which he criticized—not the GOP quislings—but those who criticized the quislings. You can’t make this stuff up.)

— Why students are not enrolling in higher education – Richard E. Vatz, Towson
(FROM THE LETTER: In his April 20 op-ed, “Colleges get schooled by plummeting enrollment,” George F. Will was sanguine about lower enrollment in higher education because among its major causes is the politicization of the academy. As a professor who just retired from full-time professorship following nearly a half-century, I can tell you that he was 100 percent correct. I know many universities and many academic organizations whose humanities and social sciences are progressively biased beyond what even cynics estimate. I just left the National Communication Association because of its thoroughly anti-conservative stances and prejudices.)
