As Battalion Commander, I have gained valuable leadership qualities and confidence in leading our core as a team in a disciplined and professional manner; something that was already being implemented while working towards achieving Eagle Scout. My interest in math and science started at a young
The Madison Scouts are the epitome of a marching band. The longest running “official” marching band in existence has a very long history. They however were and continue to be very successful in the drum corp world. Winning multiple world and DCI championships, The Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps continues to be the only strong male Drum Corp in existence.
Boy Scouts has taught me many skills and truths for life, but no skill has had as much impact as servant leadership---the ability to gain the trust of those around you by helping them. Being active and a leader in a group happens naturally now; after years of following, I find myself leading my friends. Whether it was because of being a Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) and Eagle Scout in my troop or, I have drawn in new friends who have grown to look to me as a leader. At the beginning of this school year I drew in many new friends who look to me as a leader. This year I was fulltime dual enrolled at the University of North Georgia which gave me the opportunity to make new friends.
Over the past 13 years, scouting has taught me a lot of things that will stay with me the rest of my life. It has taught me, don’t use gasoline to start a fire. I’ve learned that being an eagle Scout isn’t just a title, but a way on how to live your life.
I have always been a particularly musical person. When I was younger, I wanted to become a singer when I grew up, but upon joining the choir in elementary I realized I did not have the talent for singing that I thought I had. Continually singing off key and never sounding as good as my peers did, I decided to confine myself to singing at home where only my family could hear me. Despite this revelation that I was, in fact, a terrible singer, I still wanted to participate in some type of musical performance and decided to join the band in middle school. After trying out various different instruments, I settled on the flute and quickly fell in love.
Who I am today is directly related to every badge I worked hard to earn. I take nothing for granted and know how to work hard in life. Scouting taught me to respect all aspects of life and gave me goals to reach.
For my ethical leadership paper I choose the Boy Scouts of America organization. The reason that I choose the Boy Scouts of America was that I could not think of a more ethical organization than them. The reason that they are so ethical is that they train young men every day to put other people before there selves when they do community service. A very good example of this would be in 2008 four boy scouts were killed trying to help others before there selves when a tornado hit a camp site in Iowa (Del,J 2008). This show a type of leadership that many people would not understand unless they went through the program. To me this show true leadership because they put their lives on the line to save others. This kind of mind set is put into
I started attending Fork Union Military Academy in the sixth grade and have stayed throughout my entire high school career. To me, this in itself is a large accomplishment and is something I am very proud of. Every cadet goes through many ups and downs, I know in my seven years I have seen more than my fair share of trouble, but like my father always said, it 's not how you fall, but how you pick yourself back up. I made sure to do everything I could to show those around me, and to prove to myself, that I could pick myself up and accomplish anything.
“Scouts’s Honor” by Avi is a realistic story about kids who go camping in a different state.In the begining, three nine year olds have to go camping in a different state.The have to do it to move up to the next level in boy scouts.Soon,they try to all be braver than the other kids that would probaly make them the leader.In the end they realize that they can’t do it because they are only nine years old and they are not being watched by a parent. The story shows that the most brave thing to do is admit you are not brave then they travelled all the way back the way they came. The three boys try to be brave.
I was rounding the base, running to third I could hear my mom and mina (grandma) yelling “run maddison, run”. In that moment I knew my love for softball would take off. I was about 4 or 5 years old, on a T-ball team named after the major league baseball team the Red Sox. I had games every Saturday that my mom, sister (Cassidy) and Mina would some to while my dad worked most of the time. I continued to play T-ball throughout the years than eventually moved to the level of softball. I learned to absolutely love the sport and learned how to play well with others and work as a team and in a quick moving and fast pace environment.
Out of all the things I would do in high school, nothing would impact me more than joining the North Rangers Marching Band. It would give me more skills than any other aspect of my life that would prepare me for a future and allow me to evolve from a shy child to an adult with skills that prepared me for my future. I went into high school as a shy kid, with no true direction, at least until I discovered my schools marching band. Although coming in two years behind most of me peers, I knew that this was where I was meant to be, and with that, my mind was set and I was determined. Throughout the next two years, I would face countless difficulties with this that felt at times like tests of my willpower and what this band meant to me, but luckily I would push through, and in the end, would be left with a stronger person. As I look
I was in National Junior Honor Society in junior high; since then it has been a goal of mine to be in the National Honor Society in high school as well. I love helping others and getting things done when other people are not able to. I am extremely adaptable to any situation I am put in and get along very well with others. I have leadership experience in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, I am also in a position at my job that gives me a lot of influence and leadership. At work, if people need something they will generally come to me before my boss because 95% of the time I am am able to help them. In Boy Scouts I served as a patrol leader for a group of about ten boys, leading them on camping and hiking trips. I also held the position of Assistant
I know that my experience as has been a wonderful opportunity to grow as a person, and I have made use of this to the best of my ability. I believed I have matured and gained skills, as well learned lessons about life. . Many people my age do not get the experience similar to this. I learned to clean up my act and mindset. I will continue the service throughout my life and I know that because of my volunteer experience I have benefited, and that these benefits will carry on as I develop and become an adult.
The coming of age is the process of growing up or entering adulthood, a stage of life that every living thing goes through from human to fish, although it comes at times that are unexpected and at any age, sometimes it might be fast or it could be a slow process. In the book TKM many characters go through the coming of age from old to young. This essay will be talking about Scout, Boo,and Jem and their journey through the coming of age. The sense I have decided upon is the scene where Scout and Jem are attacked In the forest, On the way home from a the school play. And how literary terms affect the thought of the scene
