ONLINE REPUTATION MANAGEMENT!

For many high school students, the Internet is a virtual playground. A place to connect with friends, explore interests, and even study for school. About 1/3 of students report that they’re constantly connected to Facebook, and social media outlets including Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter capture more teen users every day. Some students are sharing large parts of their lives online, from their weekend plans to photos of their latest lunch. Right now, it may seem like you’re just chatting with friends, but what you’re really doing is laying the foundation for your online reputation.

Much of the content you’re sharing online is available worldwide to anyone with an Internet connection, and thanks to tools like caching and the Wayback Machine, they are likely to be permanent, creating a digital trail that can last a lifetime. That means embarrassing high school moments or lapses in judgment are no longer forgotten with time: they’re preserved online for the world to access, quite possibly forever.

If the digital footprint you’re building now may last a lifetime, consider this: is it one you’ll be proud to share for the rest of your life? In more immediate terms, is your online persona one you’re willing to share with college admissions officers or future employers? If the answer is no, don’t panic. You’re not alone. Better yet, be prepared: there are steps you can take to build a positive online reputation while you’re still in high school.

The Pennsylvania Legislative Appointment Initiative (LAI) allows Representative Wentling to appoint a student from the 17th Legislative District as the Commonwealth Scholar for guaranteed admission and a guaranteed partial scholarship to Valley Forge Military College (VFMC). 

Valley Forge Military College is the only institution in the Northeastern United States offering an Early Commissioning Program. Successful candidates will earn a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army in two years rather than the standard four years. Graduates who are commissioned serve in the Reserve Components while completing their bachelor’s degrees. This is a significant opportunity for eligible applicants to become a part of Valley Forge’s character based education within an academic and military environment. 

Interested students should visit https://www.vfmac.edu/college/college-admissions/paying-college/pa-legislative-appointment/ before the deadline of August 1, 2018 to complete the application.
