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.
Becoming an NHS member recognizes my scholastic achievements but, just as important, it gives me the opportunity to continue expanding my leadership skills, strengthening my character for future challenges; all while simultaneously being of service to my community and my school. I am committed to working hard using my skills and talents to make a positive change in the world. Membership in the National Honor Society gives me the unique opportunity to interact with other like-minded students who will develop into the future leaders of society. When I first became aware
It was really cool for me to do this because I remember being a kid in the camp when I was younger and looked up to the varsity players coaching like they were gods almost. This experience made me realize that I impact and I am a role model in so many children's lives and I try to live my life in a positive manner knowing that there are others people watching me like them. Some other ways that I use my athletic leadership as a platform in my civic involvement is in football we can volunteer at places like Hills and Dales or in track we have a service day when we go out to the other Holy Family schools and do yard work/ helps clean around the
To begin, all parts of daily societal life are closely monitored and controlled by the Council. For example, during Equality’s fifteen years in the Home of the Students, which is a requirement all men must fulfill before being sent to work, “... we arose when the big bell rang in the tower and we went to our beds when it rang again” (20-21). Through controlling when citizens start and finish their daily tasks from birth, along with deciding how long they must attend school, the society has conditioned its citizens into knowing nothing else but what has been repeated daily for the majority of their lives, thus leading the people to believe that no change to daily life is essential. Second, the Council of Vocations (22) assigns Students the occupation that they will carry out for the remainder of their lives, because the Council: “knows in its great wisdom where you are needed by your brother men, better than you can know it in your unworthy little minds” (22). “If the Council said "Carpenter" or "Cook," the Students so assigned go to work and do not study any further.
To be in National Junior Honor Society you have to have good character, citizenship,service, and leadership. First, I have good character. I take criticism willingly, and I also welcome recommendations. Second, I demonstrate citizenship well.Civic involvement is very important, and I have high regard to freedom, justice, and respect for the American form of government.Third, I will serve the the school and community. I 'm willing to take on difficult or inconspicuous responsibilities; I work well with others and I 'm happy to work with others.
Second, the Council of Vocations assigns Students the occupation that they will carry out for the remainder of their lives because the Council: “knows in its great wisdom where you are needed by your brother men, better than you can know it in your unworthy little minds” (22). “If the Council said "Carpenter" or "Cook," the Students so assigned go to work and do not study any further. But if the Council has said "Leader," then those students go into the Home of the Leaders… And there they study for many years, so that they may become candidates and be elected to the City Council and the State Council and the World Council” (25). Since this select power allows the government alone to determine the profession of the Students, it grants them the ability to designate leaders and workers from the idea that those chosen would insist on preserving their current way of life. This power, combined with the ability to control every aspect of daily life, suppresses rebellion, in most cases, before it
I try my best to participate in as many as I can. These include Student Council, People Helping People, cross country, basketball (high school and AAU), softball, church choir and Relay for Life. The past three years I have been an officer in the Student Council and a member of a team whether it was sports or church. On the basketball court I am the point guard which is the playmaker of the team. I can bring this roll with me.
The National Honor Society contains four qualities which encompasses it. These traits are scholarship, character, service, and leadership. These four pillars define the Honors Society and can also be used to portray myself. The quality of scholarship. Scholarship is defined as a commitment to learning.
What character qualities do you think exemplify an NHS member? How do you personally exemplify these qualities? Give specific examples. Character qualities that I think exemplify a National Honor Society member are treating everyone as equals no matter your own personal preferences, wanting to further your education not only for grades, and exceeding in your ambitions even with extreme setbacks and struggles. Treating everyone as equals no matter your own personal preferences is a crucial trait for a member of the National Honor Society because a personal bias against a certain group of people changes many different situations and influences your own character.
I am leaving everything to start a new life and it is a huge jump for me in taking initiative. Dependableness is crucial in growing up. This skill is coming to work/school on time, following through with commitments, and being accountable. Throughout high school, I have not missed many days even when I am sick because I follow through with my commitment of being a student and am liable for getting my work done and being on time. Positive behavior should always be demonstrated wherever
