One of my dreams is to be part of The National Honors Society and be part of the family; I am already part of The Spanish Language Honors Society and want to further build upon my academic career. I have demonstrated leadership, service, character, and scholarship and I hope to be inducted into the society. Even after I get inducted into the society, I will continue to volunteer in my society; as of this summer, I hope to be volunteering at Atlanticare. Volunteering in my community has been a great experience and I can not wait to extend it with a new chapter of my High School career. I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
As the first semester of my sophomore year, and the first semester as a FIG mentor, come to a close, I realize what an adventure it was. Being a FIG mentor, I was introduced to new challenges, such a becoming leader and educator for the incoming class, to overcoming my shyness and increasing my communication skills in order to relay effectively the goals I had for the students. Overall, the FIG program has contributed to my overall growth as a student and has helped me prepare not only for my future as a professional in my chosen career field, but as a global citizen on this planet. One of the major challenges I faced entering the year was communicating with students. I often become extremely nervous and flustered when speaking in front
From my teachers to my classmates, the numerous people at this school are a mix of the most wonderful, kind, and encouraging people that I have ever encountered. One of the most memorable experiences that I have had at Prairie Ridge was my participation in a group for new students organized by two great counselors: Mr. Dusenske and Mrs. Berg. I am very thankful for this experience because I was able to become comfortable and happy at Prairie Ridge alongside other students with whom I could empathize. Furthermore, without the encouragement and kindness from my peers or the PR staff, I would not have felt the desire to succeed , nor would I have stepped out of my comfort zone to do
They had no trouble coming up to me and asking for my name. That made me realize if they can do it, so can I. My contribution to the FNLM Program was exciting and challenging but overall it was a great program to be in. Meeting new people and mentoring 8th graders so they can have a stress free and peer pressure free life while in high school and out of high school was amazing. It was a time for me to learn,to feel comfortable around people and talk freely.
She said that it was "really fun," and that she looked forward to it every spring semester. katie Osinde said "It was one of the best parts of my college experience because it gave me plenty of opportunities to meet new people and make friends that I still regularly keep in contact with. I really can 't stress how important that time was for me as not only as a student, but also as a person." In regards to the importance of Black History Month, Junior Osinde said "It 's a really cool thing that we as a nation are able to celebrate together. Everyone can learn something from it and everyone can grow closer from it too.
My passion for wanting to help those with disabilities and illness all started in high school when I started to work with the Special Ed program and help volunteer with the Special Olympics. I loved watching those kids laugh, smile, and have an amazing time. When I applied and got accepted into UNCW I started to look at the majors because I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. That’s when I came across Recreation Therapy and when I started reading into it I became very interested the field because it sounded exactly like something I would love to do. In my high school career, I helped out with the special education program by taking them to NC State Fair, to the Special Olympics, and around Christmas time we took them to the mall so they can shop for their family.
“You are something special, Joey. You will make a difference!” That is what my grandfather has said to me since I was in elementary school. He always believed in me, encouraged me, and supported me. My Pawpaw Duke is a planner, a goal setter, a provider, and a teacher. He almost died last spring and I realized how much he continues to influence people, especially me.
From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research. I really enjoyed working the kids. Since they were in 7th and 8th grade, it was sometimes hard to remind them how important the work we were doing was, even if it was 9am on a Saturday morning. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed working with the program.
I have a passion for working with children in my future career. I have been a camp counselor the past two summers and it has provided me an opportunity to further my leadership abilities. Therefore, other leadership positions I have had was being a freshman connection mentor, leader for the children’s ministry at college church, junior high mentor for Youth for Christ, leader for the WRL council, and many others. I believe this semester I have balanced my school work, friends, family, and other things as well and I have continue to be very successful. I believe I am a hard working student and I do not like to give up on things easily.
School staff and parents advocate for activities for the teens both inside and outside school to expand their social sector by allowing them to ‘get involved’. Active involvement in both school and community is significant to the adolescent culture and carries a social value. Types of activities that students participated in were sports, band, school clubs’ organizations, community functions, part-time and full-time jobs, interactions with their peers, and family activities (Chang, 1992, p. 147). One such organization that student participated in was the 4-H club and these clubs were well received, because of the rural nature of the community. Families are a very significant part of the Greenfield teenager’s life, many of the teens stated that “that their families provided them with security and support they needed” (Change, 1992, p.
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.

I was in National Junior Honor Society in junior high; since then it has been a goal of mine to be in the National Honor Society in high school as well. I love helping others and getting things done when other people are not able to. I am extremely adaptable to any situation I am put in and get along very well with others. I have leadership experience in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, I am also in a position at my job that gives me a lot of influence and leadership. At work, if people need something they will generally come to me before my boss because 95% of the time I am am able to help them.
This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities. I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
I want to play for Mitty and be part of the Mitty heritage of camaraderie and success. I know several people that have graduated from Mitty and they all have nothing but great experiences from their high school years. Those people were confident and grounded. When I went to shadow at Mitty on December 2nd, the people there were so nice and friendly, which made me feel like I was a part of
