I have been considering and trying to aim for National Junior Honor Society since I have entered this school. This would be a wonderful experience if I could become a member of the National Junior Honor Society Chapter. Although, I am not involved in a numerous about of clubs or extracurricular activities in school. I am in a couple of organizations, do community work and work related jobs outside of school that demonstrates my skills, such as leadership and providing me experience. I like to make my community a place where people can get along and that it is comfortable for at least most people since not everyone will be like that. I like to be involved in various clubs, activity, etc. It gets me moving up and about on my feet. Also, I can time manage all the clubs that I am in, the activities outside of school, the school itself carefully and very efficient. I believe I should be a member of the National Junior Honor Society Chapter team for various reasons, such as I can demonstrate leadership, have work experience, a "people person" and my involvement for F. Niel Postlethwait Middle School and more.
Due to my passion for soccer, I have served as a soccer camp coach for QuickSkills Soccer Camp, and am currently volunteer assistant coaching
Allexus Barnes 11th grade National Honor Society While I start to get in touch with colleges and universities, I have come to realize how much grades matter when planning for my future. Academically excelling in school has always been something I have made a priority.
I’ve been a dancer at Rachael’s Dance Studio for about eleven years. I also cheer for the Bucktail football team. Being apart of any team you have leadership responsibilities to face. Job wise outside of school I have two, I wash dishes and cook at Pat Reeder’s Tavern on the weekends and work at the Service Garage in North Bend. Both these jobs have taught me so much, things I never gave a thought about until it hit me.
All my life I had always loved to help others and set an example. I believe that community service through the program National Honor Society, has greatly impacted my life by showing me how I can put my underlying motivation and cast a full fire of passion. I have always loved to teach and motivate others to try their hardest in school to achieve something above of their expectations. From my love of teaching, tutoring and trying to help understand in "student talk" has always been a strong point to show how rewording something can greatly impact a student's understanding which is all worthwhile. I always make sure to keep my grades up and dedicate time to studying and persevering which has influenced others around me to follow my path to achievement.
During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art.
I used to run down the sideline shaking the goal jar, now I run around with a cash box at every school event asking for donations for the senior class. I’ve realized that some things never actually change, they just evolve to become something bigger. Soccer challenged me, brought me a great amount of happiness, and truly inspired me to be the leader I am
It is a great honor to be considered for acceptance into the F.A. Verplanck Chapter of the National Honor Society. Being apart of this means more than just having outstanding grades. Even though it is an important factor, aspects like leadership, community, and character is also what shapes this organization and the people in it to be a well rounded individual. I feel as if I possess all of these characteristics and I will make me positive contribution into the National Honors Society.
I have been blessed with many great opportunities in the past three years to serve and increase my leadership skills. I have played soccer for my high school, and was voted Team Captain of the varsity team by my teammates. I absolutely loved growing closer to each one of those girls, and being an example to them both on and off of the field.
The National Honor Society’s theme for this year is “Envision Success: It’s achievable.” The theme basically says that you should always strive for being successful because if you try enough it can happen. Envisioning success can range from simply wanting to be successful to going out of your way to assure that it happens. Success can be achieved in different ways depending on the task. It all starts with a single thought that should be followed with a plan. That plan should guide you through the difficulties that come with achieving success. You may not succeed the first time, but that’s expected because you may lack experience, and you can’t win at everything. Your plan for success should be well structured. It should be specific because
I have found myself to be rooted deep down with my christian ministry group Chi Alpha. We are a group of students that seeks to make relationships within our religion of christianity in order to form a loving community for myself and many others to be a part of. Recently, I have found myself to be useful when it comes to running the soundboard at our worship and collaboration nights where I come in early in order to set up chords and mix the worship band as they practice. This has been an excellent experience as I have been able to keep up my love for music as the same time of attending university. My active participation to this after class activity has developed who I am as a person.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
While simultaneously balancing work and school, I developed a greater sense of my abilities. I not only grew as an individual; but also gained character and knowledge. I can successfully state I have completed one year with a cumulative GPA of […]. Furthermore, I continue to participate in extra circular activities in my free time. For instance, I have held the position of assistant secretary of the business club, and have participated in the math and psychology clubs at Three Rivers Community College.
I have gained important leadership skills because at a very young age I had to become a mom. A mom to my own siblings, my parents had troubles with jobs and alcholism. In a big city alone I had to learn on my own how to keep my siblings behaved and nutured. My leadership skills kept expanding through out elementary. As I wasn't afraid to speak my mind and do actions upon myself.
