The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities.
A major way that I have challenged myself is doing boy scouts. I am at the current rank of a Life Scout and only need to complete my eagle project to become an eagle scout. I have been in boy scouts since I was eight years of age and it has been a benefit to my life. Scouting has shaped me into a more responsible young man, teaching me many valuable skills and attributes. One of these skills is mental discipline, not giving up, to be able to finish things that I start.

Sonny was an average boy in a mining town, but he started building rockets and learned a valuable life lesson. Through perseverance, you can accomplish your dreams. This theme is shown in the memoir October Sky, and is seen in topics such as, Sonny’s pursuit of education, his rockets, and his relationship with his father. A vital part of Sonny’s life during the days of the Rocket Boys was education. "I trudged up the stairs.
Some people leave a lasting imprint in your life because of their genuine character they bring to earth, Steve Wagendorf would fall into this category. Steve met me when I was very young because my father worked with him through the Soil Conservation Agency. I remember meeting Steve at the Regent Co-op and right away when I walked in he showed a happy smile that was contagious. Steve honestly cared about people and always wanted to brighten anybody’s day. I got to know him better growing up and he was an essential part to our Speech program.
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.

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.
Since kindergarten, I have been involved in BSA (Boy Scouts of America), which brings much community service with it. The one instance that stands out most in my time in scouts was my eagle project. I chose to benefact a local ministry out of Binghampton that services inner-city youths by refurbishing a basketball court in the backyard of one of the clubhouses. Because it was a herculean task, my inability to delegate tasks was confronted. Seeing the finished product was rewarding; however, the real satisfaction came from the faces of the children who got to use the new court for the first time.
I am a registered Boy Scouts of America Leader. All of the young men I mentor are of school age and have some type of educational challenges in their lives. I can show them that even with everything else going on around them, their education is important. I can show them that by putting in the extra time and effort, nothing is impossible. I can also use my education to help relate to those I mentor, those that need me the most.

I also want to be a Kid Reporter because I remember reading Scholastic News and really being affected by the articles. Millions of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders read the articles each year, so I feel that even one of my articles can make difference in someone 's life. When I read the Scholastic News, I remember keeping almost all of them because I loved
For example, I am an active member of the FPC band. I have met a lot of new people being in that club that helped inspire me to make a bigger impact in my community. As I begin volunteering more time outside of school I realized how much I enjoyed dedicating my time to help those around me. Motivating others to do the same then became my goal for my future. My intelligence and intellect are also very important to me and thus have led me to this situation.
