At my high school, the Beta Club is the most elite, respected, and prestigious club. It is filled with the leaders, the doers, the hard-working, and the individuals who turn their dreams into reality. It is not for everyone, and in our ever-changing society, that is clear. Most people today do not like to rise up to the ever-growing challenge of leadership. It takes a certain kind of person to be a good leader, and the Beta Club has greatly helped me in doing so. By active community service, leadership roles, and hard work, I have learned the incredible importance of academic achievement, character, leadership, and service. Through these things, I have been substantially prepared by the Beta Club to serve others as I depart high school and
I want to be part of the SHS board of officers because not only do I take pride and jubilance from my spanish heritage and background, but I work arduously to be a salient member of anything I am a part of. I want to learn from others and gain more responsibility to ensure me a more auspicious future. I believe that by being in such an honorable society and as an officer, I can impact my peers as well as gain knowledge from others and their different cultures. As a current member of the Spanish Honor Society, I have already left a mark, by being published in the March edition of Albricias for a drawing.
I have been considering and trying to aim for National Junior Honor Society since I have entered this school. This would be a wonderful experience if I could become a member of the National Junior Honor Society Chapter. Although, I am not involved in a numerous about of clubs or extracurricular activities in school. I am in a couple of organizations, do community work and work related jobs outside of school that demonstrates my skills, such as leadership and providing me experience. I like to make my community a place where people can get along and that it is comfortable for at least most people since not everyone will be like that. I like to be involved in various clubs, activity, etc. It gets me moving up and about on my feet. Also, I can time manage all the clubs that I am in, the activities outside of school, the school itself carefully and very efficient. I believe I should be a member of the National Junior Honor Society Chapter team for various reasons, such as I can demonstrate leadership, have work experience, a "people person" and my involvement for F. Niel Postlethwait Middle School and more.
When coming to Arcadia High School I didn’t know what to feel like, would I say frightened, worried, or energized? For this reason I decided that I felt confused. I was a bit stressed at the thought of getting bad grades. I entered school and saw what looked like a beehive of people going where they needed to go. So like many freshmen on their first day I got lost looking for my first class, it was such a big school and many of the halls weren’t even in alphabetical order. I wound up asking one of the construction workers and they told me that it was “over there”. I didn’t understand because they didn’t point in any direction, I started walking around the corner and saw the same construction worker again, I asked him again and this time he
By taking on leadership roles such as being president of environmental club and public relations of class council, I am a mentor to others all while sharing the same interests and providing opportunities for them to build their own character. Prior to this school year, I was fortunate enough to attend a weeklong event called Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, where I lived there for a week surrounded by young leaders from all over south jersey. In this experience, I learned that being a leader means being understanding of others and their situations. With this experience I was able to bring back what I learned to my own communities like environmental club. Not only do I have to be organize and communicative, but I also have to be a role model to members of a club by showing my own good character. Specifically, in environmental club, I organize and provide events where members can participate in their communities through
In high school, I have balanced my membership in eight different clubs. These range from the National Honor Society, Student Council, and Beta Club. These clubs have given me the opportunity to practice my leadership by chairing service projects and contributing my ideas to better the school and the community. They have also allowed me to serve others through tutoring, donating, and
In five to ten years, I am uncertain of where I will be, which career I will have, or what activities I will be a part of, which I believe to be the truth for most entering college. However, the four pillars of Purdue University’s Honors College are, to an extent, already instilled within my character. I am certain that with being an Honors student in the future, I will be living a life only possible through cultivating my already existing character traits into columns to support not only my education, but my life after college.
Being members of different clubs has given me eye-opening experiences that I wouldn't get anywhere else, and for this reason, I appreciate these clubs so much. Whether I was going on a backpacking trip to Harriman State Park with the Explorers club, learning to dance the Bachata in Spanish club or writing speeches in the National Honor Society. Each club brought a little new different aspect to my life and these clubs really helped me with my goals. At first it was a challenge to put the most effort in something that’s very hard or I don’t know how to do, but these clubs taught me the skills to be able to do that and reach my
I hope the information i have gave you will influence you to go to the great school of Missouri Valley. Here are my sources: http://wwww.jimthewonderdog.org
Throughout my high school career, I was in three honorary clubs, which were Spanish Honor Society, Florida Future Educators of America, and Key club. Without including the honorary societies I was in five other clubs; Peace Insight, Diabetes awareness, Interact club, Here to Help, and Wolv Pak. I was a member of Wolv Pak from my sophomore year to my senior year. In Wolv Pak, we would cheer the football team every Friday night, and assist in a portion of the pep rallies. I was also a part of Here to Help from my sophomore to my senior year. I was the community service coordinator/ secretary I organized events that we would volunteer such as a walk for autism, volunteering at St Rita’s Church and volunteering at numerous hospitals. In Interact
I want to be apart of a sorority because I think that it is a great way to meet people with common interests. I love the idea of giving back to the community and raising money for charity. I also love the idea of being apart of a sisterhood of girls. Sororities really give girls a feeling of belonging, which is what I am looking for at UNCW. The fact that a sorority is bigger than just UNCW and you can meet people all over the country from different schools but the same sorority is an exciting idea to me. Through the clubs and activities I have done in the past I have gained many leadership qualities that I would like to grow further in. I believe that being in a sorority would help me do that. The socialization that comes with being
I’ll never forget how I felt the first time I walked into Prairie Ridge High School. I was surrounded by approximately sixteen hundred other students and I knew exactly none of them. I had never been that alone before and when I walked through the cafeteria doors, I felt the first seed of doubt that maybe I should have stayed in Union, with my mom. At that moment, I wanted to turn around and run out of Prairie Ridge, hop in the car, and drive the four hundred miles back to my friends, my teammates, and the majority of my family. Instead, I took a deep breath and sat down.
I’m not an orator, nor am I a scholar. Though I do enjoy a good debate and engaging in intellectual conversations ; I feel like I am never “good-enough”.
I’m student in Savanna high school, in the 12th grade will be graduating this year and getting my high school diploma. I spent the last three years of high school in different high school outside the U.S. Savanna high school is the first school I attended here in the U.S. I experienced different teaching methods and their was changes in each high school which brought challenges with advantages and disadvantages. I use to take 12 subjects in a year in my previous school while here in savanna I take 6 but they are technology based which i didn’t have that advantage back there. There wasn’t many resources or help like now. School didn’t talk about universities and applying very often.
