The National Honor Society, NHS, was officially started by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in 1921. It started in a Pittsburg high school, but quickly grew throughout the nation. NHS has maintained a long history of admitting exemplary students into the organization. NHS developed four main tenants that have helped guide the purpose, as Zeiger (n.d.) explained: "to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools". I have chosen to do the National Honors Society, because it helped me throughout my junior and senior years in high school. After becoming a member, I quickly learned that with honor comes great
Within a fellowship of individuals, honor is highly esteemed. The sharing of common attitudes and being united through service, binds a society. Being a member of the National Honors Society would bring me countless opportunities to further my academic career, allow me to give back to my community, and introduce me to accomplished student leaders who have the same perseverance I do. Academics has been a significant aspect of my life ever since I was little, I constantly try and challenge myself with rigorous courses such as honors, AP, and IB courses, I have also been on the honor roll since middle school. However, scholarship is not my only strength, as a member of numerous teams; I am familiar with the ideals of community and leadership
The title of the most ‘Disorganized, Sporadically Planned, Disaster of an Event of the 2016-2017 School Year,’ must sadly be granted the 2016-17 National Honor Society Induction Ceremony. As a brand new National Honor Society Inductee, I was honored with the chance to attend this prestigious event and found myself leaving dissatisfied and disillusioned. The National Honor Society is a well-respected and important organization in the academic community, one that students work hard to achieve enrollment in and colleges view with respect and admiration. The Induction Ceremony is meant to honor these students dedication and scholastic work ethic and pay homage to the Honor students that have come before us. I had much been looking forward the event as a way to show my family how much effort I have poured into my highschool career. I wanted them to be proud of me.

Within the club I worked hard to solve problems faced by LGBTQ youth in my community. I helped form the school's first pride event, organized a fundraiser for LGBTQ youth homelessness, taught my peers about LGBTQ identities and orientations, and proposed and helped lead a campaign to get gender neutral bathrooms on my school’s current and future campuses. While not a end all solution, this work

As a candidate for the National Junior Honor Society, I understand that is it not important to only have good grades and help the community. Being in NJHS means that you have to be a role model to everyone around you. A role model is someone who is a leader, demonstrates citizenship, and has good character.

Steps toward diversifying STEM fields–such as Kimberly Bryant founding Black Girls Code–are especially beneficial to the cause, but we have to remember that expanding STEM will be a lengthy process; just as it takes numerous, continuous steps to run and finish a marathon, so will the journey for diversity in STEM be as extensive. A diversification in STEM needs to happen. The more variant the minds of tomorrow 's scientists are, the more potential there is for new innovations and inventions. But what is holding this undertaking back is the same thing that hinders equal rights: deep rooted stereotypes in our society.
Mr. Lipp could I come in? I walked into the principal’s office considering if I had what it takes to convince him. The reason I joined National Honor Society was to give back to my community.
Diversity in technology leads to increased innovation, better problem solving, and an engaged workforce. Diverse teams tackle problems from a variety of perspectives. Diversity creates a balance that is “priceless”, according to Eric Schmidt. In an increasingly globalized world, and as technology expands its reach to billions – diversity will matter.
As a member of BU and the Boston community at large, I have been involved in leadership roles that promote the participation of women in STEM fields. I am an officer and a mentor with the Girl Science Club, a Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE) outreach group (sciencegirlsclub.wordpress.com). Once a week, along with fellow GWISE members, I conduct science experiments with 8 and 9 year-old girls at The West End House Boys and Girls Club. I intend to actively participate in the GWISE community and continue my volunteer activity with the Girl Science Club throughout my Ph.D. studies, and beyond. As part of the BU Biogeoscience Program, I am organizing and coordinating an alumni career workshop, which is providing me with valuable
The U.S. Department of Education recently reported that even though more female high school graduates took advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) courses than male counterparts, their interests in STEM were significantly lower regardless of race/ethnicity according to a 2009 survey (U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics [NCES], 2015). Further, there are significantly less women who completed STEM degrees compared to men (Lee, Alston, & Kahn, 2015). In addition to the gender discrepancy, racial discrepancy also exists in STEM. Both discrepancies have been examined by researchers for the last decades; however, relatively less studies have examined the racial discrepancy in STEM. In contrast, many studies have examined how to promote gender parity in STEM fields.
