Being on a team is a special thing. It’s just like being a part of a family. I have been a member of the girl's varsity lacrosse team for four years. Many lessons have been learned from the wins, the loses, and the successes that our team has had in the past years. As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well.
I knew I would become close with my team since I spent so much time with them, but then I realized even once volleyball was over, they would still be my family. This year as varsity setter, I knew I had to take on the responsibility of leadership. I did not realize however, that I would become the team mom at the same time. My responsibility was to make sure everyone on my team kept their heads up and stayed confident because I believed in them. In the beginning of my last season I told myself that I needed to put forth one hundred percent effort every
Dobson had led his teams to 11 district championships, two state championships and an appearance at the Nike Cross Nationals. But he had never coached a collegiate or post-collegiate runner. “It was a chance for me to try something new and, after talking on the phone, we both felt it was a good fit,” Dobson said. Dobson, also a professing Christian, felt God had orchestrated the opportunity. “Her Christian faith resonated with me and my family,” Dobson said.
A School where you are surrounded by people of all ages, you are taught by real college professors and have to take responsibility for yourself. This was a huge step for me, along the way I fumbled and sort of slipped of track, but my devotion for my dream of attending college and entering the health profession pulled me right back on tract. My whole life I have been devoted to education and striving to do better. My strive for bettering myself and reaching my goals and dreams will never stop, no matter
I am extremely honored to be eligible for this opportunity to apply for the National Honor Society. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society has been a goal I set for myself since I was a student in middle school. I have been greatly looking forward to this moment for a very long time. Overall, I have worked incredibly hard these last two years to display a positive character and obtain qualities such as leadership, responsibility, and scholarship. I strongly believe I will be a productive and reliable member of the National Honor Society at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School.
Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought. The idea of God stayed in the back of my mind, but I have recently learned that the back is not the position that God should hold in my life. Missions are an area that my church is very passionate about, so we supports and participate in them every year. The church members always advocate for the yearly summer mission trips, and after going on my first mission trip to Boone, I became an advocate as well. I love working on the mission fields, so I try to go on as many mission trips as I can.
Since I have been home for almost a year now I have become closer with my family especially my father, he has now become a big asset for me. He has agree to always support me with whatever I need. I can always count on him. Finally, I plan to seek for help using campus resources such as CAPS if I was to go through a major depression or a state of loneliness ever
The opportunity of creating and planning events to improve the experience of student athletes is a huge draw to a career in event management for me. There is still so much for me to learn in the area of event management, interviewing Seth was invaluable. I hope to continue to develop a relationship with him and soak in all of his knowledge and experience in the field. Seth told me that at the end of his career he wants to be able to say that he never cheated or sold out, that he was always in it for the student athletes and coaches, not for just a paycheck. I would like to say some of the same things about my
My parents had instilled in me the importance of hard work and dedication so by the end of the school year I was capable of holding a clear conversation in English. I realized then that I could achieve anything I set my mind to; a lesson that has carried though my entire life and served me well in years to
My fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Mackey made a positive effect on my life. She was a very impactful teacher who even today I speak to often. She went above and beyond to ensure that her students were achieving in her classroom. Mrs. Mackey had a relationship with every student in her class and kept up with us through our middle school and high school years. We had such a relationship that she wrote a recommendation letter for me when I was applying for scholarships.
I greatly understand the importance of bettering our school. In my community problem-solving project, Safety Before Sunshine, my peers and I are working to increase the use of sun protection by adolescents in Florida. We have devoted many hours towards our action plan, which consists mostly of our intent to implement sunscreen dispensers in various places throughout Palm Coast and Flagler Beach. We have worked with city, county, and district officials to develop our action plan devoting numerous hours working towards our goal. We plan to go further than our sunscreen dispensers and educate our community as much as possible after returning from state competition.
Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school. It is always fun to be around children and teach them about the words of God. if I am indeed inducted into national honor Society I plan to take on more leadership roles to improve the community. I want to be the person that people look up to and say goodbyes from. I hope to be able to help others in anyway shape or form I possibly can and inspire others the same way that others before, had inspired me.
TNSCTP Scholarship Letter Athlete: Madelynn Weas Madelynn has been voted President of Str8 Shooters Clay Team by her teammates for the last 2 years. She fills the role perfectly with her drive for knowledge, she has been in a leadership roll for years as a 4H Honors/Allstar member. I think that this has helped her perfect her pursuit through coaching or mentoring shotgun sports with SCTP. I can always rely on her to work with me on our new and upcoming youth, her form and stance will always be textbook, this seems to help the youth understand what goal we are working towards. She could and will pursue the roll of coaching to the next level in the future.
