The Morehead Honors Program opens many doors for the receivers. Several magnificent programs and internships are offered to students that are part of this wonderful program; these include an internship in Frankfort, an intensive summer research program for students interested in medicine or dentistry, a commitment to host a show on the campus television station for a year, and a year-long volunteering experience working with children in after-school programs. Honestly, the volunteering experience in after-school programs for children interests me enormously. Along with building onto my existing skills, I will develop new skills, grow as a person due to the experience, and face my fears and anxieties. I believe I would thoroughly enjoy that
I strongly feel that Gatton Academy is the right place for me to finish high school. At my high school, I’ve struggled with lacking curriculum and instruction, with little to no challenge provided for me. Gatton Academy will be able to provide me with the tools and resources I need to excel to the best of my abilities. Not only will Gatton provide rigorous coursework, but it will help prepare me even more so for life as an adult.
GSSM is an incredibly unique and ever-evolving community and I feel that I could contribute a ton to its community. In the same sense of giving, there is a lot I can gain by attending that could advance and further my future. Although attending GSSM would mean leaving my friends and family I already have established at home, there is a lot more I can gain so it would be worth the while. I think it is always worth making a small sacrifice if it will reward you in the long run. Leaving home and my current school would be hard, but I am great at adjusting to new things so I feel like it wouldn't be a problem. GSSM would put me on a better path to succeed in my career.
One of Jeicy’s greatest accomplishment has been learning a new language. At the age of 9 (3rd grade), she came to the United States from the D.R. Third and fourth grade were the hardest years, but by fifth grade, her English was pretty good. Though she was always good at math, she struggled in reading, and spelling while learning the language. At times, you could hear her accent, but for the most part, most people would never know.
Garber High was a life changing experience for some of us. It was challenging. There was no talking back to teachers, no “getting out of class just cause”, nothing. Garber high had many clubs available to join such as: NHS (National Honor Society), SLS (Students Leading Students), Student Council, etc. If being apart of those clubs was us, they thought highly of you. Not one student at Garber was treated differently. The time at Garber is really who they make it to be. They decide which path they choose to follow, they choose what career in life they want to part take it. Colleges left in right visit and they choose to meet with their college of interest and persuade them to get each and every one of them on the right track and ready for the future. Garber High has many
Upon beginning my first class at Walden University, it has been difficult to see myself getting through this 8-week course. Furthering my education has been something I have struggled to accomplish for the last 4 years. I almost decided to give up and continue being just a high school teacher. However, being a senior teacher that motivates my students to go above an beyond to reach their goal has pushed me to work hard and start a new journey. Though it is only the beginning of my journey, I can see graduation. In learning about Walden University this week, I have gained insight on what it will take to experience graduation. In this paper I will discuss what I hope to have learned and mastered while being a student at Walden University.
I also want to connect and conduct leadership and service roles with other members who have the same passion as me by extending our service to the community. It would be a great leadership opportunity for me to actively engage in activities and programs that exhibit servant leadership on behalf of Pace University. I believe that this honor society will enhance my leadership skills by creating a community based on benevolence and compassion. I believe that my personality and passion for servant leadership would benefit Lambda Sigma because I love to engage in community service. I am also from a very diverse environment, in which I can bring a new perspective to this community based off of values that I cherish in my every day life such as hōʻihi (respect), kuleana (responsibility), haʻahaʻa (humility), and mālama (to care). Another value that I have introduced my current leadership team—Setters Leadership and House—was kahiau, which means to give back to the community without expecting anything in return. I can demonstrate my commitment to this society by being actively involved with events that we plan or attend. I will also share my values and incorporate these values in activities that we do to empower each other through academics, leadership and service. Advocating about my values is a form of leadership that I like to share with others to introduce them to my culture and the values that I stand by. I also want to be involved in planning events to empower not only Lambda Sigma, but the Pace community and Pleasantville
Prioritizing for a passion. This statement directly relates to chapter one and two in “What the Best College Students Do,” by Ken Bain. Throughout the chapters, Bain provides examples of successful people, studies, and tools to support his idea that learning surpasses grades in the scheme of life. To accomplish the skill of learning, students must possess determination, drive, and passion.
Hi! I’m Salvatore; call me “Sammy” for short. The goal of this essay is to better reflect the person that I am, so that whoever reads this can learn about my personality and individuality, and why I should attend your school. My school grades may be deceiving, which is why I feel the need to write about this. During my early high school years I wasn’t maximizing my full potential; I believe that I have much more brain and willpower than my past happens to represent. I will bravely admit that I made the shortsighted choice of not trying hard to complete homework and try hard on tests, even if I had the mental capability to do so in my freshman, sophomore, and junior years. I know that I have much more intellect that I kept quiescent in the past
As the end of my time at Prairie Ridge High School draws near, I have begun to reflect on how my life has changed throughout the course of the two short years that I have spent at this school. Prairie Ridge is the third―and last―high school that I have attended and it is safe to say that it is a school that I wish I had attended for the entirety of my high school career. From both an academic and personal aspect, I know that without the time that I have spent at Prairie Ridge, I would not be the person that I am at this moment.
Little Princes, written by humanitarian and author Conor Grennan, is a nonfictional account of Grennan’s experiences and tribunes while helping out at an orphanage in Nepal. The book quotes the description as “One Man’s Promise to Bring back The Lost Children of Nepal.” What at first was an attempt for Grennan to hold bragging rights, turned into a life-changing experience that not only changed his life, but the lives of the orphans. As he spends more and more time at the orphanage (which houses sixteen boys and two girls), he discovers that there is a bigger picture as to why the orphans reside there. The children have all been victims of child trafficking, which is the extortion and sale of children who are often under the age of ten. In
Reluctantly smearing sunblock over every exposed inch of my fifty-three pound body, I prepared mentally for the arduous task that lay ahead of me. After several miserable fishing ventures which had left my skin red and my hook bare, I felt certain that, at last, my day had arrived. I stood ready to clear the first hurdle of manhood, triumph over fish. At the age of seven, I was confident that my rugged, strapping body could conquer any obstacle. Pity the fish that would become the woeful object of the first demonstration of my male prowess.
being a “fellow creature” (Manning and Stroud 74). The environment would be an important issue to one of the Care Ethic, because the relationship that one has with the rest of the creatures, human or otherwise, leads them to protect one another.
I have a keen interest in promoting the health and well-being of my fellow community members. The very thought that my efforts could help save someone’s life and inspire others to do the same motivates me to spark greater change. Moreover, I hope to refine my skills in community outreach, communication, and teamwork, all of which are among the most crucial to improving society. Taking an active role in the city government has brought me to access the importance of bridging gaps within the community, an effort that I hope to continue and grow through my position on the Red Cross Club board.
To the community and my high school, I’m seen as a great role model and the ideal student. In Pre-K, at Pines Elementary School in Plymouth, NC, I excelled and exceeded my work and was able to move up a grade (Kindergarten). At that very moment, I knew I was a very intelligent and unique girl, I was smarter than average, and I had a gift. Since that moment, I graduated from Washington County Union Middle School (Roper, NC) as salutatorian of my class and I’m currently salutatorian of my class at Plymouth High School (Plymouth, NC). I am involved in many clubs and organizations at my school in which I run top positions as vice president or captain. These are just examples that can justify the reason of why I deserve this scholarship.
