Each of the National Honor Society’s four pillars, character, scholarship, leadership, and service, are a part of what the students of NHS embody in who they are and how they act. Character is the sum of who a person is and how they act, be it good or bad. Attaining good character is very important because one’s character will seep out into all aspect of one’s life and permeate into the decisions they make. Scholarship represents the importance of education and learning. Through good grades, high test scores, and academic excellence one develops a love for lifelong learning.
I would consider it both an honor and privilege to be selected for the Roland-Story Honor Society. This is an organization the represents the best in what students have to offer to others as well as themselves. I feel that I would be a worthy candidate and member of this organization as I constantly work at being my best in all areas, but especially in the areas of character, leadership and service. Character is a difficult trait to sometimes define and explain, but I feel that I work hard to demonstrate such characteristics such as dependable, compassionate, honest, and enduring.
Leadership: taking the initiative to establish a clear vision, share it with those whom are being led a certain direction, and coordinating all interests to accomplish glorious victories. A drum major is not simply the person who conducts the marching band, they are the one responsible for taking on a magnificent leadership role; they must be role model for all of its members and it is their job to make each and every member feel valued, no matter what their position may be. As a drum major, I would strive to lead the East Haven High School North Branford High School Co-op marching band to victory on and off the field. The first step to being a superb drum major is to possess extraordinary leadership skills. I have been a leader in various musical aspects, as well as in other areas that have prepared me to
The National Honor Society helped me gain communication and confidence skills. It was where the top 20 percent of students gather together to volunteer and build leadership for their current clubs and future dreams. I enjoyed doing community services with this fantastic group because they have helped me become a better leader towards anything I wanted to be. While I was building my leadership I was also building my self-esteem. I was being more confident in meeting new people and giving out a speech in front of a huge crowd.
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.
His achievements just like many others show and reflect the dedication he puts into all of his work. I can say confidently that the student I am today is because of the effort I put into my work in school as a child and how I learned at an early age what responsibility is. I have been so proud of the goals and things I have accomplished through my life thus far and I know if I keep pushing myself to be the best that I can be that I will be able to tackle anything that life throws at me and be able to succeed in anything I set my mind
and I consider myself flexible in my decision making. Since I am such a cheerleader for everyone in my school, I see how being positive and an active participant in the leadership, helps to maintain an inclusive educational environment leading to success for all students in that environment. My job experiences have helped me learn to be a member of a collaborative team and while I am competitive at heart, when it comes to my students and inclusion, it’s all about what will help them. I am adaptable and organized, which can be helpful in a collaborative environment where things are changing to fit whatever hiccup or challenge arises. I know where my strengths are and I see
Active member involvement is highly important for a community to thrive; especially in a newly developing community like ours. The recent transition into a new school district has called for the city of Jacksonville and its citizens to come together to work towards its success. The only way the transition can happen smoothly is through community service. When I was made aware of my changing school and district, I first felt hopeless. After the initial shock of having to leave my high school my senior year, I realized I had to make the best of the situation I was given.
I believe that I deserve this scholarship for several reasons. One of the reason to why I deserve this scholarship is because I have worked really hard to do as good as I can throughout high school. I have maintained a grade point average of a 3.214 on a 4.0 scale, and with this GPA it has landed me a spot in the top 30 percent of my graduating class. Another reason that I deserve to win this scholarship is because I have participated in activities and clubs though the school that have gained me knowledge along with the opportunity to give back to my community. For example, my participation in the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America has given me the knowledge to be a better person and has given me the opportunity to give back by
I am truly honored to be one of the many outstanding students at Seminole High School who are being considered for admission into our chapter of the National Honor Society. I feel that I fulfill the expectations of the Society because I exemplify scholarship, leadership, service, and character in both our school and our community. However, the pillar that I feel that I represent best is service. After more than 130 hours volunteering, I feel that I can truly grasp what service means to our community, and how that service exemplifies one of the pillars of the National Honor Society.
The first of my short-term goals is to graduate high school as a participant in the National Honor Society. The National Honor Society is a program high school students apply for and if they are accepted, gain multiple benefits from. Accepted students must have have high GPAs, multiple hours of community service, be considered strong leaders within their community and by their peers, and be of good character. It is my goal to become a member of this program because not only does it help with college applications, but it also challenges me to improve my strengths and weaknesses. More specifically, I’m wanting to it to push me to be more involved in the community resulting in improved leadership skills.
I am honored to be selected as an applicant of the Westlake High School National Honor Society. I would seek admittance to the National Honor Society because I wish to give back to the community and being part of this organization will assist me in my career path. The National Honor Society is built upon four pillars which are character, scholarship, leadership, and service. I believe I posses the characteristics embodied by the four pillars of the National Honor Society because I have solid study habits such as reviewing my notes and paying close attention in class. I am a well mannered student who always comes to class on time and prepared to learn.
I am extremely honored to be considered for the National Technical Honor Society. I have been looking forward to this moment for two years now. I strongly believe I would be a good candidate for NTHS because, I am a dedicated hardworking student who strives to be the best I can be. I also believe NTHS would be a great benefit not only towards my scholastic abilities but also to my character. As a student, I have set high standards for my future, focusing on my studies and looking forward to college.
Leadership, a drive to serve, and a strong character are crucial aspects of those who wish to live successful and prosperous lives, and unsurprisingly, are desirable traits for those in National Honor Society. Leadership is the ability to motivate, inspire, and guide others in forming a favorable outcome. Instances that I have exhibited leadership include being the captain for two years in a row for Black History Quiz Bowl and being both a counselor and teacher at a 4-H summer camp. The ability to serve helps bring out a person’s humility, selflessness, and deeper understanding of how the world interacts. Character is a culmination of traits that make up a well-rounded person, such as being altruistic or possessing comradeship.
