Integrity is being honest and doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Don Galer’s quote, “Integrity is what we do, what we say, and what we say we do” shows that integrity is affected by strong moral principles and what we do with those. The role of National Honor Society is to celebrate the students who have kept up their integrity throughout their high school career and to keep them on that same path. Integrity is an important aspect in education today because there are so many opportunities to cheat on a multitude of assignments but the students who stay away from cheating will be better off in the long run. For example, while I have been in high school there have been many times that I could have cheated like reading the spark
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future. I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader.
The pupils participate in community service activities, and are measured by the amount of time they dedicate to the community. It is important that everyone belonging to the Marian family reflect these ethics in all their activities and actions, and in their interactions with the community at large. Marist Brothers Linmeyer strives to develop their students to achieve academically and in sport to the best of their ability, preparing them for their
It is a huge responsibility to make sure a child, or sometimes an infant is safe at all times. I am always trying do the right thing, so the child can have someone they can look up to. I am a leader in the sense that I never turn down anyone when they ask for help. I should be accepted into the National Honors Society because giving my service to people, whether it is in school, home, or the community is an extremely important aspect of my everyday
I don’t really know why I was invited into National Honors Society, for I know I do well with grades but, my grades aren’t what define me. My actions are what define me. Who I am is someone who is always trying to be someone better morally. Someone who is trying to be smarter than they were the day before, even if it 's just a little. I am trying to be an uplifting person and an influence for good around me by do a small act of service every day.
I know from experience that honors courses can be very challenging and stressful. Even when I am facing the hardest classes, I know that I must never give up. I put all the effort I possibly can into my work. Even when I receive grades that I am not so proud of, I never get discouraged. I am content knowing that I did my absolute best.
She instilled in me that education is the gateway to a better life. School and education have always been important to me, as has being my own person. Leading, and not expecting things to fall into place, but working for them, that is how success is achieved. Among the other lessons my mother has taught me, without even meaning to was her form of charity and citizenship. When I was young, if she saw litter she would always pick it up, stating “If we don’t pick it up who will?” Her rectitude taught me to take the initiative in my education and in my community.
It is easier to cheat on tests than to actually spend time learning the material. Despite this, I rather acquire my grades knowing that I earned them than by being manipulative and sneaky. Throughout my school life, I have faced with several opportunities to cheat. But each time, I have refused to do so. I may not receive straight As, but I am proud and honored to say that I earned my grades through my persistent work.
It has always been a hard reality to deal with. Despite this, I found hope in their resilience every time they greeted us with graceful smiles on their faces. The day I secured a job as a teacher, I knew to make a difference no matter how small. I had to change the mind-sets of the children I taught. I taught and always sought to encourage those girls and boys who were influenced by these enforced gender roles.
Do your homework, take responsibility for your life and take your school seriously. Not only for the purpose of yourself, but also for America’s future. Make students believe in them self and fight for it, whether they are black or white, rich or poor. Everyone can achieve what he or she wants, but it’s followed by hard work. “Everyone is equal”.
My Legacy By Drew Gawlas I wish to leave a personal legacy to my children, one that will live on in their hearts. I do not want to leave behind something with no purpose or meaning, like a meaningless item of mine. Rather, I want to teach my children important values. Of all the wonderful things my parents have ever given me, the greatest gifts were the pieces of moral guidance that shaped me into the person I am today. The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence.
As a student with many qualities, I believe that I should be in the NJHS. Many of the traits that I have as an individual would benefit the standards that the NJHS expects. For instance, I am dedicated, diligent, responsible, and a strong leader. One trait I show off daily is my dedication for school. My priorities are set on getting good grades and working hard on my school work.
