National Junior Honors Society As an individual i have a lot of good qualities, like being a leader and helping people when they need it or standing up for what i know is right. I have a lot of good qualities and I think that my good qualities should be spread throughout my school and community. I am fond of being a leader. I do Cheer and Volleyball because I like to lead my team and show them how being confident in what you’re doing can make you strive for greatness.
The National Honor Society is based off of four pillars; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Scholarship is one of the most important pillars to me. Scholarship means not only doing well in school and getting good grades, but applying what I have learned and using it everyday. I know the importance of education and feel that I am a lifelong learner. I feel very fortunate to have been raised in a family where education is a priority.
When I was chosen by my teachers to apply to be a member of National Honor Society, I was very honored. This honor is very dear to me and is further validation that I have demonstrated my willingness to work hard, help others and be a contributing member of society. I believe that I possess the qualities to be an asset to this organization because of my hard work, morals, respect, academic excellence, leadership and service to the community. These qualities have been noticed by the teachers around me and I thank my parents for instilling these attributes in me at such a young age. My academic achievements have not always been easy for me.
I was very honored to know that I qualified as a possible candidate for the National Honor Society. To be honest, I never thought of being in the National Honor Society. Therefore, when I got pulled out of class I immediately thought I had done something wrong. I went home that day and told my mom about it. My mom looked me in the eyes and told me that she was very proud of me and gave me a big hug.
As a student at Catalina Foothills High School, I believe I have lived up to the tenet of service and display ideals that the National Honors Society seek for in a student and citizen in society. If I am granted membership into the society, I believe I can contribute my qualities to the community as a member of Catalina Foothills National Honor Society and demonstrate the highest standards of behavior to represent our school honorably. To begin, I would like to establish the importance school and grades plays in my life. As of freshman year, my GPA has been a 3.8, but it constantly continues to grow and improve. My grades are a top priority in my life, because I’m aware that in order to succeed in life you need to be knowledgeable of how the world works.
I want to be a recipient of the Delta Sigma Theta Chapter of East Point/College Park because I believe i exhibit the values of what Delta Sigma Theta was founded on. I also have always considered being a Delta or get an opportunity to be in something as great as a Delta Sigma Theta program. My goals include be accepted into a college or university, obtain as many scholarships as I can, and graduate with honors. Currently, I have been accepted into approximately eight schools and most offered scholarlship amounts that vary.
I belong to many task and relationship groups currently. However, a few stick out above the rest. For starters, Upward Bound is a task group that I consider to be problem-solving. In Upward Bound, especially in my senior year, we have had the problem or obstacle of preparing for college. We have gone through, as the DeVito text would define it, a set of procedural rules to follow to achieve success.
This year, I have continued to achieve academic excellence inside the classroom while continuing to be a leader in the St. Paul’s community. For the first semester, I have earned four A’s and three B’s in the full International Baccalaureate Program (my school will be sending my updated transcript). This winter, I earned the role of the captain of my varsity basketball team. I am a leader on the court and try to set an example for my teammates of how important it is to work hard in all aspects of life. This year has been the third year of the Jewish Awareness Club at St. Paul’s, which I founded in my sophomore year.
The National Honor Society serves as a symbol of prestige for the student body of Long Branch High School. The leaders who are part of the National Honor Society program are made, not born. Leadership cannot be taught, but learned through experience. I believe anyone can be a leader but being a leader requires character, It requires courage.
“Yes, I have to be apart of this.” was my immediate thought when I opened the letter. I did a lot of research and asked a few people about what I would need to take part in this group. “The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation 's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.”
