Being involved in many activities in high school, from athletics to fine arts, has taught me how to work well with others as well as work hard under pressure. One of the many organizations I have been involved in while in high school is student council. I am currently serving my third year as student council president for my class and in doing so it has taught me leadership and organization. Student council calls for many responsibilities and opportunities including, service projects for the community, planning a variety of events for the school, and planning major events such as homecoming and prom. Planning and organizing events has given me the opportunity to communicate and meet new people.
I greatly appreciate my nomination to be considered for induction into the National Honors Society. I would be honored to join such an organization as it would not only provide opportunities for myself, but also encourages and emphasizes the importance of service to community. Before and during high school, I have been active in serving the community in a consistent way. Other activities I do also influence and shape the way in which I approach service and leadership tasks.
It is a great honor to be nominated as a member of the National Honor Society. There are many reasons why I want to take part in NHS. One reason why I want to be in it is to continue to grow academically with people who have the same goals as me. I want to be encouraged, not discouraged by the people around me. If I get into NHS, it will give me a lot of opportunities to be a leader.
One goal I have been working for is being selected for the National Honor Society. It has been an honor to be considered for the NHS. Working hard as a freshman and as a sophomore has eventually paid off. Team work, hard work, and success are how I would define NHS. I believe I would be a valuable addition to the NHS committee because I have the ability to set examples and exceed
I believe I display all of the qualities mentioned in the four pillars of National Honor Society. I am a person of good character who displays the six pillars of character in everything I do. I provide leadership and service in many ways and value education as a lifelong learner. Being a member of the National Honor Society would motivate me even more to be the best version of myself and help to create change in positive
I am extremely honored to be eligible for this opportunity to apply for the National Honor Society. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society has been a goal I set for myself since I was a student in middle school. I have been greatly looking forward to this moment for a very long time. Overall, I have worked incredibly hard these last two years to display a positive character and obtain qualities such as leadership, responsibility, and scholarship. I strongly believe I will be a productive and reliable member of the National Honor Society at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School.
NHS Personal Statement If I am accepted into National Honor Society, I believe I can make a lasting positive impact on the organization. With my academic aptitude, strong work ethic, and positive attitude, I know I can greatly benefit both the society and others outside of the society. Firstly, as my academic record shows, I am extremely motivated to do well and achieve good grades.
By taking on leadership roles such as being president of environmental club and public relations of class council, I am a mentor to others all while sharing the same interests and providing opportunities for them to build their own character. Prior to this school year, I was fortunate enough to attend a weeklong event called Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, where I lived there for a week surrounded by young leaders from all over south jersey. In this experience, I learned that being a leader means being understanding of others and their situations. With this experience I was able to bring back what I learned to my own communities like environmental club. Not only do I have to be organize and communicative, but I also have to be a role model to members of a club by showing my own good character.
I definitely believe that I fit into Cor Jesu’s chapter of NHS. I have participated in many service opportunities and leadership positions, and while those both demonstrate what my participation in NHS would be if I am accepted, but I am also honest, responsible, kind, respectful, and helpful. The main reason I am applying for NHS is so that I can help others by serving my community, and I can achieve this by using my gifts and character. One of my most inspiring service opportunities that I have participated in was at Cardinal Ritter Senior Services during my freshman year.
I want to be a member of NHS because I want to expand my knowledge about myself and the ongoing world around me. Being a part of NHS would provide me a plethora of opportunities to demonstrate my strengths and to enhance my weakness, it would allow me to gain experience and make new friends. I would maintain the 4 pillar by staying a hard worker and keeping up with my school work, volunteering and serving my community, taking responsibility and showing leadership and always being the best of myself.
Two personal qualities that I am proud of are integrity and kindness. Especially this year, I have started to grow the size of my friend group through kindness. By including everyone, I have started to make acquaintances with many new people. My friends also
The leadership experience that has impacted my life the most is my position as Drum Major of the marching band. Upon being chosen to take up the position, I would essentially agree to be the leader of the marching band. The primary role of the Drum Major is to serve the band by doing specific operational jobs and leading by example. The Drum Major manages, conducts, and oversees the marching band; thus, he should act as a role model for all students by being a good bandsman and musician. Evidently, I was appointed to take on a role of many responsibilities and challenges, so I had to be prepared.
These have all shown the importance of responsibility when it comes to being in any position in a group or organization. If I do not carry my own weight in a group, then I am leading the whole group to failure. This quality has also shown me that I need to take responsibility for any and all of my actions and admit to what I have done, whether it be positive or negative, and to learn from my mistakes to better myself as a person. One thing that leadership positions have taught me is to be the best positive influence in someone’s life. Even if it is just getting a laugh out of someone, I am dedicated to being a good, positive influence to those around me because in today’s society, we are all too often bombarded with negativity.
A big part of my leadership experience is my involvement in the student ministry at my church. I am in my second year of being a part of our Student Leadership Team which is lucky enough to have a big hand in the lives of many teens from multiple school districts. As an SLT member we are required to do: announcements, that are done at the start of every night; attend leadership meetings every other week, to talk about future events and our direction as a ministry; and teaching a lesson to the entire ministry, at least once a year. Being on this team has caused me to not only grow as a leader, but to also grow as a person in general. Leadership is now a very important part of my life, whether it is in a formal setting like leading a small group in
