I am honored to be amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction into the National Honors Society. Being an active member of this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard acceptance to it a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefiting others. These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career in the medical field and leave an impact on my fellow community members. The National Honors Society is an important organization made up of students who demonstrate leadership, service, character,
"A child—could wake up one day and call for “Block Party Day.” And we’d share ribs, corn, chicken, tater pie, and collard greens, and Miss Sarah who never married always made punch with vanilla ice cream and it would melt into a swishy mess." The families all bring there food and continue on with having a great time. Its an amazing way for everybody to have a great well spent day. Especially for the people who don't have kids or a husband if gives them people to talk to and great entertainment for everyone in
Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
When he built the school the boys worked hard and if they graduated they got $100 in new clothes and help finding a job. The school was founded with Hershey's money from his successful chocolate business. Unfortunately, he died in 1945 but he left his money to keep the school up and running! Today, that money would be worth $5 billion! Each year more than 1,300 kids go to the Milton Hershey school for education, career training, housing, clothing, meals, and health care.
When I saw Wayne Thiebaud’s painting, Pie Counter, I immediately started to think about the first time I saw a table full of desserts and the pleasure I felt. Every Sunday or every other Sunday, my church would serve food to the members of the church after our long church service. I was always eager to race down stairs so that I could see the great table of desserts every child in my church would fantasize about. However, each time I tried to run downstairs, someone would always call me to do something. I could not disobey the elders at my church, so I would happily obey them, in hope of seeing the glorious table of desserts upon returning.
Girl Scout Cookies For nearly a hundred years, girl scouts have been selling cookies as a way to fund their projects and ventures. This all started in 1917 when the Mistletoe Troop baked cookies and sold them in their school cafeteria as a service project (girlscouts.org). Since then, the tradition of selling these delicious cookies has continued as well as the addition of several other flavors. My all time favorite girl scout cookie is the Samoa, also known as Carmel deLites. These angels come in a bright purple box containing fifteen cookies evenly spread out between three rows.
2014) The students will also read with a partner, help them improved in their reading together. For chapter five, the student will do guided reading. Working with a partner they get to read a fun chapter where they learned why Rod Allbright cannot tell a lie. The story on the first time Rod told a lie, when he was three years old Rod wanted a cookie but his mother told him no but he decided to take one anyways. When he heard his mother coming back he stuff the cookie in his mouth, when she asked if he had cookie in his mouth he denied but with spray of cookies crumbs flying
One of the things that was most difficult for me was to get used to the food it tastes different specially tortillas, cheese, corn, beans and ham but also here the food tastes really good, food that I had never tasted where I live before. I fit into the Hispanic community, through participating in traditions, playing music, cooking food. In the first way I fit in the Hispanic community is by participating in traditions which is very important for my family. For example one of the traditions we follow is Quinseñeras; XV is a party that is made for a girl when she turns fifteen, in that celebration first she goes to church to thank god for turning fifteen and when it’s
She would cook about fifty pies, a great quantity of gingerbread, and two casks of root beer after she returned late at night from nursing (Doc D). Tubman would hire some contraband to sell for her through her camps and that would provide her support for the next day (Doc D). Most of her time was spent taking care of the poor people (Doc E). She had six to eight people in her care (Doc E). Also, in Doc E it states, “ The aged, … the babe deserted, the epileptic, the blind, the paralyzed, … all found shelter and welcome.” In other words, she took care of anyone, they were all welcome.
Once I came back here I was also used to their routine. My grandma wakes up at 5 o’clock in the morning. She prays and begins the day by cleaning the whole house. After she finishes some of the neighbor friends come over and have Arabica coffee and cookies. My grandma makes the best Arabica coffee.
Even when I get home from work late, I still give 110% to my studies. Besides my family, my academics are the most important thing to me. I also feel that I am the right person for this organization because of my leadership roles at Dairy Queen. Every time that a new employee is hired I am expecting to train and mentor them. Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school.
We can find many opportunities to volunteer right here in the communities of Sioux County. In Hawarden, there is a Community Food Pantry that is held in a church once or twice a month that could use volunteers. This stops the injustice of our neighbors going without food. There is also a Community Supper held every month by another church in town. While this might not look like a justice seeking opportunity at first glance, it can be a big factor in bringing love and friendship into someone’s life.
As a member of FPC’s future problem solvers and community problem solvers club I have embraced and enhanced my problem solving and critical thinking skills to allow myself to lead my peers. My pivotal leadership role as a Varsity captain for FPC’s Girls Lacrosse speaks volumes as to how my coaches and teammates view me. As a mentor to other players on my team I aid them on and off the field; offering a friendship they can confide in, and tips/tricks they can use to improve their skills. I work with my peers in various clubs to help better them in any way I can. I greatly understand the importance of bettering our school.
Many would also point out she’s a wiz with a needle and thread, making countless costumes and formal attire for her family and friends. We can see her various crafts every Sunday morning during Sunday School Breakfast and other church events. After retiring from DISD Mary began creating culinary delights through her Sunday breakfast ministry at St Mark Missionary Baptist Church. In addition to serving in the Food Ministry, she also taught Vacation Bible School, Adult and Children Sunday School, and orchestrated a community block party for St Mark. An important aspect of Mary’s life is family: her beloved husband, Bobby Jackson has been her sunshine for 27 years whom she enjoys traveling and gardening.
I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader. Participating in sports highlights my ability to work with teammates and focus in difficult situations. I have been captain on my volleyball team since seventh grade and captain on my club volleyball team for the last two years. Each year
