Each year the yearbook staff spends a lot of time determining who we will dedicate the yearbook to. This person is recognized as having a positive effect on our school district. There were so many wonderful people mentioned and although it was a hard we decision we found someone who shined above everyone else. This year we would like to dedicate this yearbook to someone who has changed many lives and to someone many people still come back to see. Thank you for being a Wonderful Teacher, friend, role model, and so much more.
That 's when his brilliant idea became real, food banks (Our History). Feeding america is a national organization but they do have partners. Their partners help get even more food for people in need and has provided over 46 million people. There 's lots and lots of partners that help spread hunger awareness and help with financial support. A program i thought was interesting is The National School Lunch Program.
By seeing what the name stands for it will encourage students to want to participate in their community. While taking this class students will learn the importance of volunteering. It will teach them leadership, communication skills, confidence, organization, creativity, and planning. In this course the first task is to brainstorm community service ideas. They will volunteer at the local soup kitchen twice a week for a whole month.
I have spent many hours volunteering at local festivals and school activities, such as Chautauqua, Scare on the Square, Christmas on the Square, Memorial Day Donations, or Kindergarten Splash Night for school. In addition to volunteering, during the summer of 2017 I worked as a lifeguard at the city pool. This was a major responsibility, because you are in charge of others and not just yourself. I really had to hold myself accountable to be sure that nothing went wrong, or if it did that I could react quickly and efficiently. Since I am so active, this scholarship would really help my parents financially.
Jackie Robinson stated one of my favorite quotes, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." For two semesters, I have participated in the Community College Completion Corps. I have served as both Sub-Chair planner and Vice President of membership; in the former position I led the campaign. This event educates Tarrant County College Southeast Campus students as wells as faculty members about the importance of graduating from community college. By holding a three-day event, the committee members promoted the benefits of completing community college.
In the past, I was the treasurer for my high school’s DECA club and I was also in charge of running my high school’s store. Last winter I became part of Merrimack’s Orientation staff, which I believe shows student leadership because I was responsible for helping the incoming freshmen acclimate to college and become responsible individuals. Being an Orientation staff member required a lot of professionalism because we were in charge of making sure we were always on time for events and respectful to the presenters and each other. Last spring, I was hired at Shaw’s Supermarket and I have recently been promoted to work in the Customer Service Desk. I believe my position shows leadership outside of campus because I am responsible for making sure
Character, scholarship, leadership, service: the four pillars of National Honor Society. These pillars have led me to the person I am today. I became a member of National Honor Society my sophomore year of high school, since then I have volunteered more, focused more on school, and became a better person. I have always been someone to get involved in the community, whether it is within my school or not. I love seeing the difference I can make in someone life, just be lending a helping hand.
I would like to become an active member of Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society in order to benefit my community through service. I am immensely committed to serving and improving my community, as I have made distinctly clear with my 143 service hours. Through these service hours, I have focused on the improvement of the future community by helping disenfranchised refugee children coming from horrible living conditions in Western Africa, by teaching children about biology, chemistry, and scientific history, by preparing freshmen for their high school careers, by raising money to protect and aid voiceless animals hurt in car crashes and other human infringements, and by creating rain gardens, planting food crops, and decreasing Carrboro High School’s environmental
On the very first day of school, I began to plan my Senior Project. I wanted to piece together a project that would mean something to me and be beneficial to others. I came up with the idea of collecting donations for homeless people and delivering them to shelters. A close family member of mine was homeless for two years, and because of this, I hold a special place in my heart for homeless people. My project has been extremely eye opening.
I have had the unforgettable opportunity to personally raise $1,400 for kids to go to summer camp, whose families could not afford it otherwise. I have worked at food drives, homeless shelters, and kid’s programs in my town, in hopes to make someone’s day a little bit better and ultimately make my community stronger. These experiences shaped who I am today. While I cherish the experience I had making a difference in my own town, I am ready to grow and leave a positive impact somewhere else in the country. I want to go on an alternative break trip to spread my knowledge, experience, and positivity with other members of my team, and the people, land, and environment that we encounter throughout the trip.
