New Jersey Student Marches to His Own Tune Into the Ivy League.
Mr. Sims is senior class president at Creative Arts Morgan Village Academy, a performing arts school. Wearing a navy blue tie—though the school uniform doesn’t require it—he juggles marching band, jazz band, acting in plays and his new business, selling ice tea on campus. When his cellphone broke last summer, he skipped fixing it to spend money on his trumpet.Polite and outgoing, Mr. Sims quotes the personal-finance best seller “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” about the value of taking risks.
Next fall Joshua Sims, a trumpet player, will go to Cornell University. He was accepted this month after applying early decision.

(His mother had something to do with that.)
