Robert Peck from A Day No Pigs Would Die had to do many different chores and tasks because they need to be completed. The book expresses an important theme, doing what needs to be done, and today this theme still fits in with kids doing their chores around their parents’ house, helping their Grandparents, as well as other tasks. Robert’s Father was always doing things that needed done whether he liked doing them or not (Peck, 1977). The introduction states that Rob accompanied his father Haven, around their ranch by completing his chores and many other tasks (Peck, 1977). Rob’s Father is very much the same and he gets up every day except for Sunday (He went to Shaker meetings) and he went and butchered pigs for a living(Peck, 1977).
Well, in the livestock industry this could not be more true. Your parents are always the ones standing ring side. They hold the halters, extra spray bottles, wipe off the manure that you animal just had to release before you walked into the ring, go get your next animal ready that is in the next class right away. They do whatever they can to help. If you’re lucky enough to have a family like mine, it will be more than just your parents helping.
My extracurricular keeps me busy but I would not have it any other way. Aside from these activities, I am a student. I’ve had my fair share of good and bad teachers, good and bad students. I remember loving school from a very early age. I love learning.
He has gotten me to become a very influential respectful youngman, and got me to do things I don't think I could ever really do in life. And when things get harder or easier for me in life the things that he taught me I will always remember and never forget them this gave me a huge understanding of the people that just wanna become better, and those who dont wanna get better and achieve nothing. This goes from my intro from In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle. This shows how the captain of the team was pushing the team, and my personal mentor would be my coach on the way he pushed my team to finally win a state championship from the last state title being over 30 years ago
The National Honor Society gives an opportunity to all dedicated students to contribute to the community. This wonderful organization is made up of responsible, driven, leadership, and punctual students. This organization recognizes students with outstanding grades and academic skills, which I possess. The National Honor Society would be a great opportunity for me to expand my wings and contribute to the school that has given so much to me. I know that all my efforts to maintain a good average and a good standing in High School will be fruitful if I am given the opportunity to participate in this organization that is made up of people that are determined, devoted, and above all aspire to help others.
Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person and do as much as I can for others. In my years as a student at Mahwah High School, I believe that I have displayed various examples of scholarship, leadership, service, and character that I deem would qualify me to join this prominent society. Being a high school student who balances the rigorous work of AP and Honors courses, tough sports, clubs, and volunteering just shows my ability to bend to anything that comes my way. In the beginning of this year, my character abilities
During that time, I learned a lot from my dad. I learned how to properly vaccinate cattle, the anatomy of cattle, how to care for a small and large herd of livestock, and how to carry on the family legacy in the small town of Toronto Kansas. By the time I was an 8th grader I could count on more than one hand how many amazing opportunities I have experienced living in the life of Agriculture. I was enrolled in 4-H and FFA. The lessons learned by being a member of these organizations are so valuable.
Hard Work Everyone has at least one thing that they truly work hard for. In John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address and the movie Eddie the Eagle the belief of hard work is expressed. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address was about bringing the country together to work towards a common goal. The movie Eddie the Eagle is about a boy who always wanted to go to the Olympics and works his way up from the bottom to get there. Although hard work is expressed differently in Eddie the Eagle and Kennedy’s Inaugural Address they both show the importance of dedication for success.
The way I was raised has influenced me to be confident, mature, and selfless to not only get through life, but to succeed in it. I make it my obligation to signify the four pillars of National Honor Society everywhere I go. I know that I am evaluated on my character and abilities in and out of school. That makes me responsible to represent not only SHDHS, but my family, my clubs, and my sports
Darry is a hard worker and keeps working hard to maintain or keep what he does have; Darry has never given up on his family. This shows Darry’s main perspective on life, to appreciate what you have and work for what you want because he is constantly working for his loved ones and himself by improving all of their lives. This is also known because in the story The Outsiders the author says this in Pony’s perspective about Darry on page 4, “It drives my brother Darry nuts when I do stuff like that, ‘cause I’m supposed to be smart; I make good grades and have a high IQ and everything, but I don’t use my head.” This shows Darry as a character and his perspective on life because Pony does have brains and is smart, but he doesn 't use what he has, and doesn’t appreciate it either. This goes against Darry’s main perspective on life, to appreciate what you have and by Pony having a high level of intelligence and not using it, is a waste- according to Darry’s standards. This proves how he gets upset when somebody doesn’t follow his perspective on life.
I am truly honored to be considered for being a part of The national honor Society. Being a part of this organization has been a goal for me since I first knew about what it was, and how it does great things for the community. I am inspired when I hear the great actions it national honor Society has done and I hope to be a part of this admirable organization. I feel I am qualified to be a part of this organization because of my dedication and hard work. Every day I follow the same routine.
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future. I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader.
Although I work hard for everything I do and am always dedicated, I learned that hard work and dedication are much stronger when goals are made. I also realized you can learn just as much from watching as doing. As I prepare for college, I will carry this into being a better student to my professors. Finally, I am grateful for the huge support system that helped me accomplish my goal. My CORHA family, my mother and father, sisters, and friends were always there for advice and support; this is a blessing that is beyond any price tag.
As a student with many qualities, I believe that I should be in the NJHS. Many of the traits that I have as an individual would benefit the standards that the NJHS expects. For instance, I am dedicated, diligent, responsible, and a strong leader. One trait I show off daily is my dedication for school. My priorities are set on getting good grades and working hard on my school work.
The unique qualities and characteristics that I possess that will allow me to contribute to the UCF community are being able to work independently and staying motivated at everything I do. Working independently has prepared me for the future because I will not have anyone but myself to get my tasks done. All my life I have worked very hard to get everything I have wanted to accomplish in life especially during my junior year I set a goal to get straight A’s and I put my mind to it and I finally was able to obtain the grades I wanted. After all the years I have worked hard it has paid off which is why I am where I am today with a 4.236 weighted GPA and a 3.727 unweighted GPA. Another quality I have that will help me contribute to your community
