The National Honors Society is an organization consisting of outstanding students across the nation, and I am truly honored to be considered to join. Not only does this organization push students to succeed academically, but it also allows them to build character by taking part in their communities through leadership roles and service. With this, I would take advantage of all the opportunities the society presented me to build my own character even further. In my years of high school, I have shown that I am qualified to join the society based on my performance in academics, character, leadership and service. Throughout my years, I have been able to maintain a GPA at a 4.0, while also balancing my time with sports, clubs and a job.
One of my dreams is to be part of The National Honors Society and be part of the family; I am already part of The Spanish Language Honors Society and want to further build upon my academic career. I have demonstrated leadership, service, character, and scholarship and I hope to be inducted into the society. Even after I get inducted into the society, I will continue to volunteer in my society; as of this summer, I hope to be volunteering at Atlanticare. Volunteering in my community has been a great experience and I can not wait to extend it with a new chapter of my High School career. I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
After my rewarding experience at Dr. Visconti 's clinic, I was hooked and I looked for other volunteer opportunities. Since then, I have coached competitive youth soccer, I volunteered at Capital Care which is an Alzheimer 's and dementia retirement home, I joined the University of Alberta Shinerama club as an executive to raise money for cystic fibrosis research, I have volunteered in the emergency department of a hospital, and more. These experiences have been important in molding me into the person I am today. Coaching has improved my teaching and mentoring skills, volunteering at Capital Care has instilled me with patience and non-verbal communication skills, through Shinerama, I have advanced my organizational and management skills, and my empathy, compassion, and medical awareness have improved during my volunteering stint at the hospital. Presently, I view volunteering as an activity that is both beautiful and unique.
Because of the educational resources that are offered in the United States I was able to excel in School. I attended an Early College Academy and graduated with a 4.25 weighted GPA. I participated in many clubs such as the Recycle, Environmental, Yearbook, And Diversity Club. I was also a member of the National Honors Society, and have accumulated over 200 hours of community service. I can assure
Due to intense five-hour weekend practices and other improvements, we have reached new grounds this year. For the first time in sixteen years, our school's team was able to advance to the third round of the regional Mock Trial competition. Although Mock Trial requires a huge amount of work and dedication, the final result is well worth it. After spending many hours with the team, I can confidently assert that everyone supports each other. After all, unity is
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 I have continue to be very successful. I believe I am a hard working student and I do not like to give up on things easily.
Throughout my whole experience at Centennial, I have always wanted to join the National Junior Honor’s Society, so I feel very honored to have this opportunity to apply. Last semester, I was part of our school’s Student Council. Being in that group allowed me to see how important leadership is in our daily lives, in and outside of school. I also learned a whole lot about service, considering we had to complete one hour every week. All of these things are important, but the thing that I thought spoke to me personally was this year’s theme.
Over the course of my high school career, I have become a leader among my peers and I have made a positive difference in my school, community, and family. As a student, I made the choice to become a leader. It is something that anyone can do, but most do not. I began as a silent leader; I led by example.
To me it 's a much bigger picture. I believe it 's the years of bonding and trust I have created with all the teamates around me. To excel throughout the years, my team mates and I had to perform on the same level for us to suceed as a whole. I will always have those friends because we actually became a family as well
I plan to continue working at Rizzo’s until I graduate college and receive new employment pertaining to my degree. I believe it is a wonderful place to work and they truly appreciate their dedicated customers. In the past two years that I have worked at Rizzo’s, I have been witness to many proactive changes made by management. Based on my
I helped out with students during their lessons. I was able to work with the same student for several weeks, and I looked forward to seeing their improvements each week. It was such an eye-opening experience for me to see just how much the riding affected the students and helped with their conditions. During my time as a volunteer, I gained a lot of knowledge on the effects of therapeutic riding and how beneficial it can be to the disabled.

This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities. I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
They perform a variety of roles, functions and tasks to coordinate the 4-H program to its finest. 4-H volunteer leaders help youth to achieve greater self confidence and self responsibility, learn new skills and build relationships with others that will last a lifetime.

During my high school career I was blessed to find the Future Farmers of America, also known as the FFA,. The FFA is an organization that stands over half a million members strong. The FFA has prepared me for my future significantly more than any other group or organization I have been involved in. The mission of this program is, “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.” I believe it has done just that for me; this organization has made a profound impact on my life. The two events that have impacted my life are Creed Speaking and Job Interview.
