I am looking for more than just academics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my four years at Northwood High School, I became involved in numerous academic and extracurricular activities. As a result, I have been recognized and honored for achievements both inside and outside of school. I realize that titles and academic achievements are limited, but some of the impact I have on my community and other people’s lives is what really matters. Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student.
Recieveing this letter that I was inducted to be in the National Junior Honor Society made my heart beat faster than I’d ever keep track of, knowing that I was more of a gifted student. Every heart beat was building up my stimulation about this honor, telling me that I demonstrate scholarship, citizenship, character, leadership, and service. To know that I have all of those traits in me makes me feel more of a part of this society, and has made me begin to realize the considerable things that I’ve done. This oppertunity is great for me because I can expand my inner and outer school activities to show what great things I do in my time.
The Pillars of National Honor Society have influenced my life even before I recognized what they were. For Scholarship, I have spent the past four years dedicating my attention to my studies. I’ve spent hours after school studying particular tests. Matter of fact, I spent my seventeenth birthday taking a mock exam for my Calculus test. I’ve always kept my goal of succeeding in mind and worked hard to make my family proud. As for Service, I’ve always enjoyed aiding others in any way possible. I find a particular sense of fulfillment when I’m able to be of use to others. To me it’s so much more than getting the service done, it’s about making a difference in someone’s life. I come from a background where very few people helped my parents when
The National Honor Society is based off of four pillars; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Scholarship is one of the most important pillars to me. Scholarship means not only doing well in school and getting good grades, but applying what I have learned and using it everyday. I know the importance of education and feel that I am a lifelong learner. I feel very fortunate to have been raised in a family where education is a priority. I was taught to work hard and never give up.
Today I am deeply humbled to be recognized as a potential member of the National Honor Society. To me this means I have exemplified everything you look for in a student who goes above and beyond, not just in academics but in athletics, the community and at home as well. I have not taken this selection for granted, as I believe would be a great asset to the National Honor Society. I am hardworking, honest, reliable and quite charismatic too. I hold all the qualities required by the distinguished NHS like leadership, service, character and scholarship. Often time I see myself living by the quote “See the world not as it is, but as it should be” and I try to, to the best of ability everyday. Being in NHS would give me the chance to live out this quote wholeheartedly and inspire others to do the same.
It is an extraordinary honor to be considered as a candidate for the National Honor Society. Being considered means I have achieved my goal in demonstrating my determination- in school and outside of school- and my willingness to aid people in my community. Being a part of such a prestigious organization is an enormous responsibility to which I will fully devote my time. Ever since I was a freshman, my goal was to work diligently to be among the highest scholars and to be accepted into this scholarly “hall of fame”. Through my relentless hard work and perseverance, I believe that I possess the four characteristics of a National Honor Society member- leadership, service, character, and scholarship.
Thank you for the great honor of being invited to apply for membership to such a well-respected and incredible organization. I am very excited about this opportunity as it presents an optimal way in which to further my passion of expanding my mind and bettering my community. Since I entered high school, I have pursued this by taking all honors classes and any Advanced Placement classes offered to me each year. Although sometimes I was not always entirely sure what to expect walking into each class, and of course there have been classes I like more than others, there is no class I regret taking because each and every one has opened my mind up to a new way of thinking. For instance, after
I aspire to be in the National Honors Junior Society program. I wish to be accepted and it is an honor just to be invited to such a program. I have been looking forward to this program and being accepted shows me that I have achieved my goals to be the best student I can be. It means a lot to me as a student and on a personal basis as well. The whitcomb middle school staff has always encouraged me to R.O.A.R. I am always respectful to all people, including my peers and teachers and I always take the opportunities I have to improve my academic performances. Last year I joined many after school curriculums like art club, dance club and yearbook club. There are 5 things that affect the student I am in the 1LT Charles W. Whitcomb Middle School.
Service, scholarship, character, and leadership are the four pillars that make the National Honor Society stand out from other organizations. Espousing these pillars, I find giving back to the community very important, which I show through my service with my church, ELO tutoring, and NHS activities including the OGES Holiday Shoppe and FHS tours. As an officer of the NHS, I will ensure we incorporate a variety of service opportunities to maintain this crucial aspect of our organization. My scholarship is displayed through challenging myself academically with a schedule containing a majority of AP courses, and involving myself in other honor societies including Mu Alpha Theta and Science Honor Society. With a commitment to learning, I feel
I am ready to board the ship, and set sail – pointing towards a bright future of being an ECU pirate. Being admitted into the Honors College at ECU would be the catalyst to a successful future. As a high school senior, I am considering many universities and believe that being apart of the ECU community would allow me to reach my full potential. Growing up I have always set high standards for myself academically and extracurricularly. I participate in many clubs at my school including BETA club and National Honor Society. Not only do these clubs recognize academic excellence, they also provide many opportunities for community service. Blood drives, food drives and Operation Christmas Child are only a few of the projects that we participate in throughout the year. I am
The National Honor Society (NHS) stands by such values as Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and character; it is these values that I strive to live by. I have received the opportunity to become a proud member of the NHS, and have been humbled by this chance. Throughout my high school career I try to be involved in anything I can help the school, from being a part of community service activities. Also, I have achieved my goal to work as hard as I possibly can to stand out among my peers. Even outside of school I have worked to uphold the values of club, and shall continue to do so if I chosen.
You’re in class getting ready for a test you studied for so long, but you realize you study The wrong thing, you see a glance of your peer's paper is It worth it to copy and get in more trouble than just failing? academic dishonesty happens everywhere, even in your class, maybe you’ve done it. The academic honor code is a rule to be truthful basically when plagiarising or seeing it. many people are very half and half about this situation. We should apply the honor code because it helps students adjust to new response abilities in school, also it would help to eliminate plagiarism, and learning a fair environment.
From an early age I was drawn to the design and development of my surroundings, when it came to going to college Mechanical Engineering was an obvious choice for me. However, entering college I faced many obstacles in which circumstances changed my lifestyle from a patriarchal household, with a sole financial provider to a matriarchal household, ultimately pushing me out of my intended 4-year university and into a community college with a job. On the verge of poverty, hard work and dedication helped me prevail and not give up on my dream to become a Mechanical Engineer by allowing me to graduate from Peralta Community College District with an Associate in Science for Transfer in Mathematics and entering Sacramento State University as an undergraduate
I believe we are thrown curve balls on a daily basis, it is the size of the ball and our attitude that dictate the impact it will have on our day or days. I have been diagnosed with Autoimmune Dysautonomia which chronically impacts my bodies Autonomic Nervous System to regulate itself; in addition I produce a Neuronal Potassium Channel Auto-antibody that can create neurological deficits. In Living with a Chronic Illness things seldom go your way. As a mother of 4, a spouse and independent and capable woman these diagnoses have thrown a curve ball that has required me to adjust my approach to everything. It is a situation that requires me to deal with the grief and loss of who I as an individual was ten years ago. The overwhelming sadness and anger that surfaces is blindsiding, yet you still drive on. Surprisingly, with curve balls often comes clarification and opportunity. These opportunities/blessings often present
I grew up in a neighborhood in Oak Cliff, which is mostly Hispanic but from different nationalities, such as from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras. I am of Mexican decent and both my parents who are from a small town in Oaxaca. Few of my neighbors were white and black and did not know much about our culture, however, my father always invited them to attend a cookout or family party. My uncles did the same thing in their neighborhood in south Oak Cliff because they were only Hispanics. Once the neighbors were enlightened it created a bridge and broke stereotypes. Sharing the riches of my heritage is something I been doing with people. I believe that food and drinks from one’s culture is the best way for people to get to know each other. I have a friend who attends SMU and is also Hispanic but is scared to share our culture with his classmates because he fears being judged. Culture inclusion is something I will do at SMU because I have gained many friends from different ethnicities.
