In my school and community, we have found that there is a large setback with the incoming freshmen and their ability to adapt to the new atmosphere and changes of high school. They either have social problems, home life problems, or high school is just a huge change for them. Six years ago, my school created a program hoping to solve that problem, the mentor/leadership program, which is open to juniors and seniors. I applied, and was accepted into this program my junior year. In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school.
For the past three years of marching band, I have worked under innovative leaders that have always reached our common goal: qualify for state finals. So this past year I looked forward to following in their footsteps and make my mark on the band and everyone in it like past seniors did for me. Little did I expect that the marching band season of my senior year would be full of trials and tribulations that was eventually met with hard work and perseverance of myself and my fellow seniors. After the difficult year my fellow students and I had due to a new band director and the school’s detached emotion towards the arts program; the band’s leaders started planning for the upcoming year six months before the marching band season actually started. We covered new policies about respect and accountability to be certain that this year would run smoothly.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” a famous quote stated by Mahatma Gandhi. At the beginning of the school year, I told myself that I wanted to become more active and involved at Benedictine University. I participated in a few events during my freshman year and because I found enjoyment in those activities, I wanted to do more throughout my sophomore year. This year, I was able to participate twice in the Young Hearts for Life event that was held two times on campus. I volunteered in performing numerous electro-cardiogram (ECG) screening examinations for the student athletes of Benedictine University.
Why do you want to be a Builder at next year’s Leadership Camp? I have attended LC for the past three years as a delegate, and in my final year of high school I want to contribute to the unique experience of camp as a Builder to give those in the younger grades the same amazing experience that I’ve had. I want to leave a lasting and positive impact that will inspire delegates to become future Builders, just as my past Builders have for me. I have learned a lot as a delegate, but I believe that I can learn even more as a Builder, and experience camp in a new
However, loss had again followed me and I was again unsuccessful in attaining victory. Nonetheless, I was given a second chance by the ASB advisor who gave me the opportunity to be interviewed for a spot in student government. Over the course of the next three years, I ended up climbing the ladder and was voted in as our school’s education commissioner and secretary. These positions helped me better the interactions I had with other people and helped me understand the gravity of what it meant to lead other people. Being in charge of events such as “Big Sunday” and the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast taught me how to take the reins and guide a group of people to host a successful

I dropped out of high school at 9th grade to help provide for my family.
I have gone to school in Elcho my whole life. Elcho has given me countless chances to participate in everything. As a current member of student council, Students against destructive decisions ( SADD), Forensics, Cheerleading, and Golf, I value these opportunities.

Being so involved in high school has forced me to be responsible.

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.
