I have also developed a strong desire to meet the challenges in my life, which will prepare me for the many new challenges later on. With this in mind, I feel that the MCC Honors Diploma would benefit my academic and professional future by demonstrating my capabilities to other schools, and it would also be an amazing reward for my activities and work here at
When I was chosen by my teachers to apply to be a member of National Honor Society, I was very honored. This honor is very dear to me and is further validation that I have demonstrated my willingness to work hard, help others and be a contributing member of society. I believe that I possess the qualities to be an asset to this organization because of my hard work, morals, respect, academic excellence, leadership and service to the community. These qualities have been noticed by the teachers around me and I thank my parents for instilling these attributes in me at such a young age.

This opportunity has taught me about leadership and the need for role models in our community; particularly as it relates to children of a young age. Additionally, I enjoy the camaraderie of being a part of a team.
