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.
As Wikipedia defines it, the word scholarship means academic study or achievement; learning at a high level. I consider myself a great scholar because of the way I strive for excellence. I always aim to be the best in everything that I do. As for effort, I make sure to fill my schedule with the most rigorous classes that I can handle. I have taken all honors classes since the beginning of high school, and I aim to continue taking honors
Even when I get home from work late, I still give 110% to my studies. Besides my family, my academics are the most important thing to me. I also feel that I am the right person for this organization because of my leadership roles at Dairy Queen. Every time that a new employee is hired I am expecting to train and mentor them. 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.
My parents are my greatest role models in life and I thank God for giving me such magnificent parents. I wish that God will continue to bless them because they’re such wonderful people. I will do everything I can, to the best of my ability, to make them enjoy and have a happy life because they’re deserving of it. One of the factors and challenges that have most shaped my life was being denied a scholarship from the Tan Siu Lin Foundation during my junior year in high school.
Because of my closeness to the church I decided to attend BYU. My freshman year was probably the funnest time in my life. One by one, my friends went off on their missions, with everyone being very excited about missionary work. I too, wanted to serve a mission. I knew that it was the ‘right’ thing to do.
I maintain my GPA no lower than a 3.2 and I always love to help in my community. By the time I graduate I’ll have 120 hours of community service. I really believe that if you take some time to help someone in your community, it can really make a difference. And when it comes to school I’m always in task and try to improve my work ethic every year. In the eighth grade I won first place in regional National History Day, for group websites.
Furthermore, I have a heart of working overseas in the future and I am considering doing my field placement in Uganda. I have a passion for working with children in my future career. I have been a camp counselor the past two summers and it has provided me an opportunity to further my leadership abilities. Therefore, other leadership positions I have had was being a freshman connection mentor, leader for the children’s ministry at college church, junior high mentor for Youth for Christ, leader for the WRL council, and many others. I believe this semester I have balanced my school work, friends, family, and other things as well
“And the winners of the Tuttle Middle School American Legion Awards for 2011 are Alyssa Yund and Justin Raters” announced the assistant principal at the time, Rex Ryker, in a congratulatory tone. I have never been more grateful and proud of an accomplishment in my life until this one. Scoring high on exams, making the high honor roll, and earning awards for my academics over the years have been satisfactory accomplishments on my behalf, but earning this award seemed the most important accomplishment to me. This accomplishment marked a significant transition between my childhood and adulthood within my culture. Most importantly, this award taught me life lessons that have shaped me into the individual that I am today and that will endure with me eternally.
From a young age, I learned to be very independent, and this independence has led me to gain leadership skills that have proven valuable in school. As Vice-President of National Honor Society, I have helped take charge of more than a hundred members and helped direct and organize community service events. Such as the Harvest Fall Festival or visiting nursing homes
Regardless of how busy my social or extracurricular life becomes, I always make time for school. I have had a great high school career, earning all “A’s” over the past four years. I play varsity for all three of the sports I currently participate in and am going to be promoted next month at my job. The time and effort that I have put into school compares to nothing else in my life. I hold myself to a standard that is self-demanding, yet I accept adversity.

From the moment I began my search for the right college, Samford University has always been a top prospect. Many things about Samford stand out to me including the Christian aspect, great academics, and outstanding athletics. Therefore, I believe that Samford would be a great university for me and I would be a great student for the university. One aspect that I love about Samford University is the Christian perspective and atmosphere. I have grown up in a Christian family, attended church my entire life, and was saved at the age of seven.
I definitely believe that I fit into Cor Jesu’s chapter of NHS. I have participated in many service opportunities and leadership positions, and while those both demonstrate what my participation in NHS would be if I am accepted, but I am also honest, responsible, kind, respectful, and helpful. The main reason I am applying for NHS is so that I can help others by serving my community, and I can achieve this by using my gifts and character. One of my most inspiring service opportunities that I have participated in was at Cardinal Ritter Senior Services during my freshman year.
By volunteering at my local church and helping with local service projects, I have realized the commitment and perseverance it takes to lead by example. At my local church I continue to help with the organization of my youth group. After speaking at church staff meetings for several months we made it our goal to improve the youth group by ensuring that children and teens of all ages were included and had an opportunity to participate. I was able to create a system where teens who attended high school were paired with a middle school individual of the church. This provided a sense of inclusiveness and made the youth group more enjoyable for everyone.
