As the years progressed, I managed to earn not one, but four leadership positions, and qualify to participate in many band festivals. At Penn State, I am absolutely certain that I will work my hardest to be the best Nittany Lion this school has ever
The Crack Drill Squad is the longest lasting drill team in the midwest, and one of the greatest traditions at Saint Thomas Academy, truly animating the school’s motto of Esprit de Corps. The Squad consists of ten seniors, five juniors, and two sophomores. Although very selective, the squad has shown me what true brotherhood really is and what tradition means to the academy. Whether it was countless hours in the school court practicing for a drill, or spending long nights around a campfire at a squad members cabin, brotherhood has truly become a part of me and will carry me through
The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities.
A school board president agreed with Ms. Ciotti and had her own reasons for allowing the novel, “I whole-heartedly support the adoption of this book, not just because it is on the AP list, or because it represents a milestone in literature as the first nonfiction novel. For me, this book is a powerful juxtaposition of the depravity of humanity and the great humanity of the residents of the town” (Wagner). Ms. Wagner clearly knows the potential effect the book can have on students, which is why she supports the novel being allowed in schools. Many teachers undoubtedly will defend In Cold Blood, so they can introduce different topics that involve their class and children can collect new information from
The Han-Eul Clan was a sizable Eastern Bird Clan for centuries, reputable amongst shifters for their strength and old-fashioned beliefs. Hugo’s ancestry had close ties to the original founders of the clan – an undying loyalty that had stayed within his family for as long as they could remember. ______________________________________ Hugo was born in Incheon, South Korea – spending his adolescence in a strict and rigorous environment. For as long as Hugo could remember, his wealthy parents saw him more as a soldier than a son and it had shown through their time together. In fact, his childhood was more like a boot camp than anything else.
I worked very hard to complete as many requirements as I could for rank advancement during that camping experience, and it broadened my outlook by challenging me to learn new things and stay on track. On the last day of the camp, when the badges were completed, my scoutmaster
I would never have thought my project would have such a lasting effect. When I became an Eagle Scout the following year I began to gather photos of my “Trail To Eagle” and I made sure that I would save a special spot for my Eagle Project photos. When people looked through the photos at my ceremony it wasn’t my trip to Philmont everyone admired nor was it my stories about hiking mountains during dangerous lightning storms but it was my Eagle Project that captured everyone’s attention. My project alone would make being an Eagle Scout so
Grant was a very prominent figure of the time period and led the Union to victory and helped heal the fractured United States afterward. General Grant began his military career at West Point when he was just sixteen. He was top of his class and when he graduated, he began his four years of service and went into combat in the Mexican-American War. He was promoted to captain as a result of his bravery during the war. After this, his four-year commitment to the army was up, he left and did not expect to come back.
I never knew my life would change drastically at the age of six. Now I'm a happy seventeen year old, a high school senior, AB Honor Roll, ranked 121 out of 350, but aiming for the top 50, and I have more than enough credits to graduate. I don’t believe I’ve completely overcame this obstacle because my life is really just beginning, but I do believe that I will overcome this obstacle, no matter what, as I get older. Children these days can really learn from the values of Jackie Robinson. Even though segregation is over, now and then, children will run across a few racial things.
Throughout my whole experience at Centennial, I have always wanted to join the National Junior Honor’s Society, so I feel very honored to have this opportunity to apply. Last semester, I was part of our school’s Student Council. Being in that group allowed me to see how important leadership is in our daily lives, in and outside of school. I also learned a whole lot about service, considering we had to complete one hour every week. All of these things are important, but the thing that I thought spoke to me personally was this year’s theme.
At work, if people need something they will generally come to me before my boss because 95% of the time I am am able to help them. In Boy Scouts I served as a patrol leader for a group of about ten boys, leading them on camping and hiking trips. I also held the position of Assistant
Gaston scout attains rank of Eagle Scout Rob Wallace of Gastonia has risen to the rank of Eagle Scout, the ultimate achievement for a Boy Scout. Rob’s first scouting experience was as a seven year old Tiger Cub. He then continued his scouting adventure through Wolf, Bear, and Webelos until eventually reaching the highest level of scouting. A ceremony to award Rob his rank was held recently at Gastonia’s First Presbyterian Church. During his scouting career Rob earned 28 merit badges, the God and Family, and God and Me awards.

This definition of Leadership is best restated by my very own father “A person can demonstrate leadership skills even when not in a leadership position.” Throughout my high school years so far, I have demonstrated leadership mostly in the field of Boy Scouting in two different Troops. I started out my leadership trail in Boy Scouting by becoming a Troop Scribe who as per se the Boy Scout Handbook, 2016 Edition “The Scribe attends and keeps a log of patrol leaders’ council meetings. He records attendance and dues payments of all troop members and records advancement in troop records and on the troop advancement chart.” After that, I ascended into becoming a Patrol Leader and then acting as a Senior Patrol Leader, the highest youth leader of the troop, handling all patrols’ affairs and coordinating with the Scoutmaster for advice and consent. Upon becoming an Eagle Scout, I may plan to stay in Scouting by advancing as an Assistant
Jud later had four grand kids Matt ,Laurie ,my brother Trace,and me. I think inspiration has many meanings and forms,but to me my grandpa was because he was a world war two vet, a fire chief and was always there for his family. To start with, my grandpa was a fire chief and assistant fire chief for about 22 years in the Fredonia area.
