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.

I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
The National Honors Society is an organization consisting of outstanding students across the nation, and I am truly honored to be considered to join. Not only does this organization push students to succeed academically, but it also allows them to build character by taking part in their communities through leadership roles and service. With this, I would take advantage of all the opportunities the society presented me to build my own character even further. In my years of high school, I have shown that I am qualified to join the society based on my performance in academics, character, leadership and service.

Whether it’s volunteering at a homeless shelter, picking up trash or donating to a good cause, these are all examples of altruistic deeds accomplished to better improve the quality of an individual’s life without any selfish grants or gains in return. The same respect goes to Simon, who in Lord of the Flies displays the most altruistic characteristics as he stays true from the beginning and end of the book. Simon, instead of spending his hours in nature like he wants to, remains by Ralph to build shelter, and even assisting in feeding the littluns, finding “fruit they could not reach, pulled off the choicest...passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands… The littluns watched him inscrutably over double handfuls of ripe fruit”(56). In addition, when Jack gets his first kill Simon gives away his food when Piggy is excluded. Given the points here, Simon is a character in Lord of the Flies that plays an important, yet quiet role.
Through out my high school career leadership has been a big part of my life.

At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together.

That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.

Ultimately, I gained even more confidence in myself and ended up having a successful year, both academically and socially. This has been a significant change for me that helped me to improve my social skills at school and at work. For example, while giving a presentation in front of others, I realized that the social skills I acquired during my freshman year allow me to deliver a clear message without being as nervous.

In conclusion, moving to a large school my freshman year motivated me to overcome my introversion and helped me to be more outgoing, which turned out to be more worthwhile than I could have
