I am contacting you to ask if you would be willing to write a letter of recommendation for my application of National Honor Society. The organization request to provide a letter of reference from our teachers.

I would appreciate if you could hand me the recommendation letter in printed form by August 29, 2015, as my application deadline is August 31, 2015. I decided to choose the National Honor Society program because it will enhance my leadership skills and also prepare me for college.
It would enjoy me to be President of National Honor Society and to represent our Society and school throughout the community. I have known many of you throughout my high school years and have discussed projects that can make our school a more enjoyable and friendly place for students. I want to lead our group of 52 upperlevel students through group projects in our area such as Season of Hope for Families. I have been doing research and prepairing how we could go about fundraising and helping out or community. In this fundraiser, we could help by aquiring Board games and Arts and Craft Kits.
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, the greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring to your own life.” This quote clearly explains what service truly means to people that care about others from their heart. National Honor Society is an organization which recognizes students’ achievements not just with exceeding grades, but with service, leadership, and character. Serving others is an important and valuable pillar of the National Honor Society.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
The annual Congressional Medal of Honor Society Convention was held in Boston this year during the week of September 14th. On Saturday, September 19th six Medal of Honor recipients and their families visited Concord’s North Bridge, part of Minute Man National Historical Park, which is the site where the American Revolution began on April 19, 1775.

Accordingly, there are four pillars of national honor society. These pillars can be inside any person Who Obtain Greatness. they can uphold every inch of it deep down. These following are scholarship, leadership, character and service.
Being the president of the National Honors Society chapter at my high school, allowed me to experience what it’s like to disagree and collaborate on ideas for things as simple as shirts, to big events such as cancer walks and fundraisers. Being a part and in charge of a group as large as our NHS, allowed me to understand what it was like to not only take what you want into consideration, but what 90+ members want as well. This enlightenment began when we had our first officer meeting for the new school year. Topic of discussion was one that would be a breaking point for us: deciding if we should get t-shirts and polos, or just polos.
I believe that I exemplify the characteristics of a National Honor Society Member. As shown by my introduction to the candidate process, I strive to demonstrate my commitment to the ideal of being a good scholar. I work as a leader in the classroom helping my fellow peers and outside of school as a leader for my Boy Scout troop. I try to serve the community to the best of my ability and to help out in the classroom. I demonstrate my character by being responsible, trustworthy and following a strong moral compass.
As an immigrant who has worked diligently to improve my quality of life, each pillar of the National Honor Society has contributed to my development and success. As a first generation American and future college student, I want to use the lessons I have learned from NHS to make my parents proud, honor their sacrifices, and revere the country that has given me the chance to improve my life. Service has not only humbled and matured me as I have worked at a children’s summer camp for five summers and have led church small groups, but has also helped me realize what I want to do with my life. My service, which has primarily been with underprivileged children, combined with my father’s chronic illness that I have witnessed throughout my life,

1.) believe that I maintain the Four Pillars that National Honor Society is looking for in a student. I demonstrate Scholarship by getting good grades. Last year at the end of the 1st Semester, I had a 3.7 grade point average. During the 1st Semester, I was busy juggling The Musical, Drivers Ed, and Group Speech.
Being accepted into the National Honor Society has been a goal of mine since I learned what National Honor Society was and how only students who embody the four cornerstones of NHS which are scholarship, leadership, service, and character are accepted to be members. It is very hard to find students who have good character, demonstrate scholarship, are great leaders, and who are willing to do service for their community, and that is why I believe I am a great fit for membership in the National Honor Society because I embody all four cornerstones. The first cornerstone of the National Honor Society, scholarship, is demonstrating that you want to excel in any assignment you’re completing which is something I always do for all of my assignments
Dear the National Honor Society selection committee, Thank you for the great honor of being invited to apply for membership to such a well-respected and incredible organization. I am very excited about this opportunity as it presents an optimal way in which to further my passion of expanding my mind and bettering my community. Since I entered high school, I have pursued this by taking all honors classes and any Advanced Placement classes offered to me each year. Although sometimes I was not always entirely sure what to expect walking into each class, and of course there have been classes I like more than others, there is no class I regret taking because each and every one has opened my mind up to a new way of thinking.
Throughout my four years of high school, I have kept myself occupied by participating in three student organizations that has developed me into a helpful and prestigious individual. My participation in the Alexander High School UIL Academic team taught me the lesson of hard work pays off. I took the opportunity to join my high school's UIL current events and social studies team which allowed me to compete against others based on my knowledge of the topic. By competing, UIL has educated me that in order to succeed, you must be willing to make sacrifices and dedicate your time towards studying in order to earn a medal or a ribbon. Thankfully, I got to place in many invitational events.
