So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me. Their actions led to me setting high standards for myself because everyone in my family thought I would be a highschool drop out like my siblings.
Education is one of the greatest tools for the young mind. Education, especially a college education, can provide a young person with incredible opportunities that can take them far in life. These immigrants feel as Americans and deserve the same education opportunity as any other American. “Undocumented students, they argue, often bring unique viewpoints and backgrounds to campus, excel academically and contribute to the economy after graduating,” (Fattal). These students bring fresh viewpoints into their school environment because of their experiences.
Today I am deeply humbled to be recognized as a potential member of the National Honor Society. To me this means I have exemplified everything you look for in a student who goes above and beyond, not just in academics but in athletics, the community and at home as well. I have not taken this selection for granted, as I believe would be a great asset to the National Honor Society. I am hardworking, honest, reliable and quite charismatic too. I hold all the qualities required by the distinguished NHS like leadership, service, character and scholarship.
Namely, the unique perspectives that the teaching staff can offer students is impressive. As well, they offer a stimulating learning environment in a prime location, which allows for growth inside and outside of the classroom. Specifically, the unique potential for internships and shadowing is extremely attractive, not to mention the evening class structure is perfect for working professionals such as myself. My commitment to my goals manifests itself in my strong desire to attend the Elliott School and earn a Master of Arts degree in the Security Policy Studies program. With my years of professional experience, along with my undergraduate education, I feel I have a great deal of knowledge and information to contribute the Elliott School, as well as my future classmates.
In addition to the grade point average of students, an individual should be respectable, intelligent, and mature to gain acceptance into National Honor Society. National Honor Society is a widely renowned group that only the top candidates should be admitted to, not just for academic achievement, but for being a genuinely good person. Not only do I believe that I portray these qualities, but I have much more to offer, therefore, I should be considered for admission. Scholarship can be shown in many ways, and is not only limited by grade point average. To me, scholarship can be defined as someone excelling in school by trying their hardest and making an attempt to educate themselves to the best of their ability.
I strongly believe I will be a productive and reliable member of the National Honor Society at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School. My academic achievements throughout my high school career show that hard work and dedication truly do pay off in the long run. All throughout my sophomore
My first thought when I think of JROTC are; responsibility,teamwork,and leadership.

The United States Army Junior Reserve Officers ' Training Corps (JROTC) came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. Under the provisions of the Act, high schools were authorized the loan of federal military equipment and the assignment of active duty
“Every nerd making A’s stays on top of the game and there isn’t any hope for those caught up in gangs” -South park Mexican High school is the key to your future but, to some people it’s a waste of time. There’s kids who work hard to get their education and do the most and some people think that 's too much, but that doesn’t mean their lame and don’t got game. They got a good head on their shoulder, yes they get called nerds but if being a nerd means a great future then why not take the name with pride. The trends i see in my transcript are passing grades then failing grades and it’s going the same way all over again. The classes that I had the easiest time with was my biology class, dance class, p.e, environment science, and my mouse word class.
In Grant Penrod’s essay “Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids” he discusses the praise for uneducated success in society today. Penrod that high school athletes receive more glorification after winning a game whereas champion academic teams receive very minimal attention. Conversations from websites like TalkingCock.com reveal a collective distaste for intellectualism while other websites like Angelfire.com give praise to famous high school dropouts. Penrod points out how uneducated success is not only highly praised, but highly rewarded as well. A writer for The Carillon stated, “In more than a few cases, athletes’ incomes surpass the gross national product of some third-world countries.” Reward given to those with uneducated
Furthermore, Sodapop had to drop out out of high school to help Darry support the family. Darry wants Ponyboy’s fate to be successful, unlike his and Sodapop’s. As Ponyboy achieves high grades and does well in school, he will become more like a Soc. This adjustment would occur because Socs are known for being superior students. On the other hand, greasers were known for being simpleminded, or as Sodapop refers to himself, “dumb” (17).
In conclusion, I am very humbled to be one of the students that could be selected to become part of National Honors Society. I think that I show great character through my scholarship and service that I have stated before, and I hope to be one of the next members of the organization. I believe what I have done will help me improve and develop my character needed to meet and serve all of the expectations of the National Honors Society to the
