In high school, I was involved in the National Honor Society allowing me to serve my community on a regular basis. We participated in everything from picking up trash on the side of the road to raising money to support our local library. During college, I have been able to volunteer and participate in student-led research programs. I also enjoy getting to volunteer my time at my local elementary school as a teaching assistant. However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”.
Becoming an NHS member recognizes my scholastic achievements but, just as important, it gives me the opportunity to continue expanding my leadership skills, strengthening my character for future challenges; all while simultaneously being of service to my community and my school. I am committed to working hard using my skills and talents to make a positive change in the world. Membership in the National Honor Society gives me the unique opportunity to interact with other like-minded students who will develop into the future leaders of society. When I first became aware
During the second week of class, I was provided with a scenario to develop personal caring techniques by engaging with and providing basic morning care to a standardized patient (SP) who suffers from a spinal cord injury (Bornais, J., El-Masri, M., Krahn, R. & Raiger, J., 2012). When caring for the SP, my partner and I began by completing a focused assessment of his nervous system and then preformed a bed bath, changed the soiled bedding, and completed a head-to-toe assessment. We finished this provision of care by feeding and moving him into his wheelchair via an assistive lift system. Background During the first few weeks of professional practice, I learned a variety of clinical skills including using a foam pad to move patients up in bed,
FLORENCE— Florence-Carlton Schools observe the Montana Behavioral Initiative (MBI) universals: be safe, be responsible, and be respectful. MBI is a proactive approach to encouraging a social culture that develops behavioral and academic success for all students.

The Respect Club of Florence-Carlton is working to build the level of respect toward all individuals in the school community and empower the student body to get involved. The club is open to any 8th-12th grade student at FCS.
What is the “story” of your project or program? I am writing to you on behalf of the Contra Costa Athletic Organization. Our coaching staff’s ultimate goal is to bring a group of male adolescents together by teaching them responsibility, respect, and encouraging them to work together as one so that they can grow into outstanding athletes, and students. This year, we have managed to inspire over 80 students of various cultural and economic backgrounds to be a part of this organization. While student’s dedication and commitment are vested in our athletic program, many of our players come from low-income families, and they cannot afford to purchase the items needed to participate in our program.
National Junior Honors Society needs people who are hard working, and are ready to get the job done. I should be considered to be in National Junior Honors Society because I show scholarship and leadership, I have done many community service activities, and I show character and citizenship. I have done many activities involving scholarship and leadership. I am in violin, chorus, and other in-school and after school activities. This means I am familiar with other sides of school, and I can share my experiences and try to make them fit into what we do/what is done in NJHS.
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.
For the past three years, I have been open to various networks of connections through school and school clubs. For example, becoming a Key Club officer enriched my skills in communication with other students, teachers, and those in my community. By enhancing my communication skills, I have learned how to interact and work with different people to achieve a common goal. With these skills, I learned to set myself apart from the traditional standards by finding myself and developing my own unique characteristics. High school has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience and grow as an individual.
When I first learned that I could potentially become a member of the National Honor Society, I wanted to achieve to become a member. I know this organization does great deeds for the community all around the world; I would definitely take pride to be in the organization that ensures that a difference will be made. I would also like to generate a difference in my generation along with others. National Honor Society always recognizes students that are exemplary in and outside of school. For instance, my GPA is 3.9 as my grades are my top priority in school and that is what colleges will be looking at along with other criteria’s.
My high school career at James Madison High School has prepared me to be successful as a student at Radford University because of how competitive it is. Parents, teachers, and friends are always pushing me to be the best that I can be, whether that be with my education, social life, or relationships. The faculty and students at James Madison High school have given me a deeper view of the world. I have been exposed to many different ethnic groups and situations, good and bad, which have helped prepare me for the 'real world ' at college.
The students involved in ASB thought me the value of group work, to be confident, and to never be embarrassed when seeking for help. While being historian I was in charge of helping publicity advertise school events, and of keeping a record of those events by creating a special ASB yearbook. Which helped me with time management
