Better Job Prospects

Having an internship on your résumé demonstrates that you are able to handle yourself in a work environment while also showing that you have taken initiative to gain experience. They can often act as the gateway into the career of your dreams, allowing you to work your way up if you are determined enough.

You Can Experiment

A lot of young people aren’t completely sure about what type of career will be the right fit for them, even after leaving college. An internship gives you the opportunity to gain experience in a field that you might be interested in, allowing you to determine whether or not that particular career path is right for you. If it isn’t, you will still have gained valuable experience that could be used to pursue another role.

Developing Teamwork Skills

Though Caroline McCaul points out that many school and college projects place an emphasis on teamwork, it is not until you enter the workplace that you begin to understand how to actually work alongside others for the benefit of a company. An internship allows you to develop these skills, demonstrating the importance of working alongside others while also taking personal responsibility for your time.

A Fresh Concept

For a business to be truly successful, it must offer a product or service in an innovative fashion. Whether this is a product that has never been seen on the market before, a new delivery model for an existing product or some other innovation, there must be something that allows the company to separate itself from its business rivals.

The Right Support

Forming a company is difficult at the best of times, but it can be made much more so if you are determined to go it alone. Learn from everybody that you can, whether it be teachers who can focus your studies so you achieve the grades you need or other business owners who can offer a little guidance and a helping hand. Your support system will prove vital throughout the life of your business.

Be Long-Sighted

Caroline McCaul believes that if you create a company with short-term objectives in mind, the odds are fairly high that it will not survive past its first year. Your business plan should include a detailed breakdown of where you intend the company to be in the future, backed by strong research that allows you to feel confident in your endeavor.

Caroline McCaul Believes in NHS Motto – “Nobility Obligates”

The National Honor Society sets as its goals a desire to create enthusiasm for high academic scholarship, as well as a driven need to give service to communities. The NHS works to promote leadership skills in its members, and to foster strong character in secondary school students. The motto of the NHS is noblesse oblige, or “nobility obligates”. The motto dictates that those who claim to be noble, must conduct themselves nobly, and must act in a way that conforms with the reputation and position earned. The motto is especially meaningful for Caroline McCaul, who strives to make her family proud.

The National Honor Society has ties with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the National Junior Honor Society and National Elementary Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils. The National Art Honor Society, which states its purpose as moving student members to their highest potential in all forms of art, and Mu Alpha Theta, the U.S. mathematics honor society, which inspires interest in and scholarship in mathematics, also are affiliated organizations with NHS.

Caroline McCaul – Texas Yields the Mineral Wealth to Build the University of Texas

On November 17, 1882, on the original “College Hill,” an official ceremony was held to commemorate the laying of the cornerstone of the Old Main building. University President Ashbel Smith, presiding over the ceremony prophetically proclaimed: “Texas holds embedded in its earth rocks and minerals which now lie idle because unknown, resources of incalculable industrial utility, of wealth and power. Smite the earth, smite the rocks with the rod of knowledge and fountains of unstinted wealth will gush forth.” Smith’s words were prophetic. The Permanent University Fund, which enabled UT to be born after oil was discovered on university land, now provides 30 percent of the University’s endowment of $7.2 billion, the largest endowment of any public university in the U.S.

Caroline McCaulUT Austin believes Greek life supports and promotes cultural appreciation and scholarship, as well as leadership qualities and service to the community.

Caroline McCaul Follows in the Footsteps of her Texas Family

The leading institution of the University System of Texas, the University of Texas at Austin, is known colloquially as a “Public Ivy”. Currently UT Austin, located only 1 mile from the Texas State Capitol building in Austin, has the 5th largest campus enrollment in the U.S., in excess of 50,000 students, with approximately 24,000 staff members and instructors. “Public Ivy” is a moniker reserved for those public universities regarded as providing a quality of education on a par with Ivy League schools such as Harvard and Princeton. Caroline McCaul, high school senior at Westlake High School in Austin, has decided upon UT Austin for her next phase of academic achievement, following in the footsteps of her maternal and paternal grandmothers, her paternal grandfather, and an uncle, all of whom graduated from this prestigious university.

The University of Texas at Austin originated in a constitutional promise by the Mexican government in 1827 to establish an arts and sciences public education program. When Texas attained independence from Mexico, the new Texas Congress made provision for a general system of education, in 1836. Again, in 1838, a special committee of the Texas Congress presented an “Act to Establish the University of Texas”. In 1839, the Congress of Texas decided to set aside 288,000 acres for a university, with 40 acres of that to be designated as College Hill. When Texas became part of the United States, the Constitution of Texas of 1845 did not mention higher education. Caroline McCaul would have a family legacy at University of Texas at Austin, but first the Texas legislators of 150 years ago would have to fight for it.

Caroline McCaul – Guitar and Voice

Caroline McCaul is a recent graduate of Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, where she was a member of the National Honor Society for High School Scholars and racked up a 99.3 weighted Grade Point Average.

“I have a unique ability that combines a giving and sensitive heart with a keen intellect and a love of music that will make me successful,” she says. She pursued her interest in music throughout her high school years, studying voice and guitar at the Strum Music School in Austin. The instructors at Strum bring out the best in their students by focusing on each one’s unique interests and goals, and by creating a comfortable and relaxed environment in which to learn.
But there is no substitute for the hours of practice necessary to master any musical instrument. Playing guitar and singing, as Caroline McCaul does, has the added challenge of combining two disciplines that must be done simultaneously, and seamlessly. In order to do it right the musician must unite strumming and singing rhythms. Playing and singing may seem like they are separate things, but they are not.

A singer guitarist must first learn the notes and chords of the song they want to play, to the point where it is internalized and it can be played without really thinking about it. They need to learn the melody and lyrics to the song too, and to that same level of familiarity. Both aspects of the song are combined into a single unit.

Caroline McCaul studied voice and guitar with her teachers for four hours a week, and spent many more hours practicing to master the craft.
