Candidate A was a well-rounded student who received A's and B's in school. She was active in many extracurricular activities, including school-sponsored sports and clubs, as well as church and civic groups. At several points during her high school career, she traveled to national conferences and participated in several unique leadership opportunities, which required her to be absent from school.
Candidate B also received A's and B's, but the resume is a little thinner, because he did not participate in outside activities, as these would require him to miss school. He attended school events, but did not go to anything outside the confines of school. He received the perfect attendance award multiple times during his high school career.
