“The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students,” as reported by nhs.us. I am truly honored to be part of this organization, as are some of my classmates. Although there are many requirements when determining who is chosen for NHS and who isn’t, the main requirements are academics, character, leadership, and service. I personally believe I fulfill all of those requirements. One of my top priorities throughout high school is to earn good grades, which can be difficult when I’m involved in many things. All throughout high school I have obtained a GPA of 3.5 or above and have worked hard to earn that GPA as well. Earning a GPA of 3.5 or above may seem easy, but as …show more content…
I believe leadership can be represented by both an individual or a group. This year I was chosen to be captain for both basketball and football cheerleading. Because I was captain, I had to lead the other cheerleaders by teaching underclassmen the cheers, choosing which cheers we did, and arranging practices for the team. I not only find myself as a great leader in cheerleading, I also find myself to be a great leader in track. Because I start so many events, I am always staying after practice to practice starting blocks. If an underclassmen isn’t sure how to properly use a starting block, I am always willing to help them out. Apart from showing leadership during sports, I also show it during academics. If a teacher has us make a group project, I generally take charge and help assign each person a specific task. That’s why I believe I fulfill the leadership …show more content…
Whenever there is an opportunity for me to help out the community, I am more than willing to do it. Every summer I teach a cheer camp and every winter I teach a dance camp. In order to teach those camps, another cheerleader, or dancer, and I have to choreograph a dance and teach it to other students within two to three days. Those students then perform that dance to people in and around the community. In addition to teaching those camps, I also help out at the school. I work multiple concession stands, whether it’s for basketball, softball, or baseball games and I also volunteer to work scoreboard for volleyball or basketball tournaments on the weekends. Lastly, this past Christmas all of the chorus members walked around town and went caroling to local businesses, such as the library, the fire station, and the bank. Because this was our first time caroling, I considered it a great experience and plus, it allowed the community to get free entertainment. I enjoy helping out the community and I believe it allows me to become a better person overall. Getting the opportunity to be considered for National Honor Society is such a privilege and I couldn’t think of a better accomplishment one could earn. The main requirements one should fulfill when being considered for NHS are academics, character, leadership, and service. I believe I successfully meet each and every one of those requirements and will continue

This includes teaching children from kindergarten to 6th graders to learn how to hit the ball, to proper have a better form, and to have fun during the camp. This leadership inspire me to become compassion and help people grow to learn new things. Another demonstration of leadership is when I join a tennis team in high school. To me, leadership during tennis is to know your team and yourself better because it can set the team to become successful. This also means helping other achieve the impossible.
It is a way to create positive change and make a difference in the lives of others. I take great pride in serving my community and have found several ways to do so through my involvement in dance classes, babysitting, and serving as a Junior Counselor at camp. As an assistant in dance classes, I help to bring the joy of dance to children in my community, while also providing a positive and welcoming space for them to learn and grow. Through babysitting, I have had the opportunity to support families in my town, providing them with a reliable and trustworthy caregiver for their children. My role as a Junior Counselor at camp has allowed me to give back to my community by providing a safe and fun environment for children to learn new skills, make new friends, and create lifelong memories.
There are several different qualities that make up who I am as a person, but there are four that stand out when it comes to being a National Honor Society member. These include character, leadership, scholarship and service. To begin with, I feel that character is an important quality to possess. In school, I have never been written up for violating code or have served a school detention/suspension and I hope not to in the future.
I am very active in the classroom environment. I love to lead the groups and help organize when and what needs to be done in a project. I also help the group stay on task and help them when they need it. One final example of my leadership, is seen in the after school
This definition of Leadership is best restated by my very own father “A person can demonstrate leadership skills even when not in a leadership position.” Throughout my high school years so far, I have demonstrated leadership mostly in the field of Boy Scouting in two different Troops. I started out my leadership trail in Boy Scouting by becoming a Troop Scribe who as per se the Boy Scout Handbook, 2016 Edition “The Scribe attends and keeps a log of patrol leaders’ council meetings. He records attendance and dues payments of all troop members and records advancement in troop records and on the troop advancement chart.” After that, I ascended into becoming a Patrol Leader and then acting as a Senior Patrol Leader, the highest youth leader of the troop, handling all patrols’ affairs and coordinating with the Scoutmaster for advice and consent.
It is a great honor to be nominated as a member of the National Honor Society. There are many reasons why I want to take part in NHS. One reason why I want to be in it is to continue to grow academically with people who have the same goals as me. I want to be encouraged, not discouraged by the people around me. If I get into NHS, it will give me a lot of opportunities to be a leader.
In my eyes, a leader is not a title for one person to have. Anybody who dares to step up and help change things for the better is a leader, regardless of who they are. Every team needs leadership to be successful. Leadership is a quality that takes place on and off the court and in the field. A way that I demonstrate leadership in my sports life is by not only holding myself accountable for reaching my full potential but also holding my teammates accountable.
Every week I spend time at the Morristown Medical Center as a volunteer, where I am able to help keep things functioning in the hospital at the highest speed possible and hopefully brighten a few patients’ days. Also, I’ve enjoyed helping refereeing youth basketball games for the past two seasons and being able to talk with the kids. It is a great opportunity to give back to a program which gave me so much in the five years I played in it when I was younger. Furthermore, I am excited for even more opportunities to have an impact on my community which being a part of National Honor Society would aid in.
Acquiring leadership skills along with a strong character and the sense to serve others is vital. A leader should be resourceful, dependable, selfless, and a good problem solver. I have led in many ways- inside and outside of school. Last year as a tenth grader, I was class secretary for Class Council.
I was taught to work hard and never give up. Leadership is also a very important pillar in the National Honor Society. A leader is a person who guides others with their actions or words and influences others in a positive way. I feel that I am a leader in many ways. I participate in many different
Today I am deeply humbled to be recognized as a potential member of the National Honor Society. To me this means I have exemplified everything you look for in a student who goes above and beyond, not just in academics but in athletics, the community and at home as well.

I hold all the qualities required by the distinguished NHS like leadership, service, character and scholarship.
Khadiza Begum Senior Fitzgerald High School As a student, it is a great honor to just be nominated as a candidate for the National Honor Society.

Leadership has played an important part in my life for the longest time. When I was younger I would always make sure that people were doing the right thing, and if they weren't, I wasn’t afraid to tell them and help them out. One of my first leadership opportunities was in third grade. I had just moved to a new school and didn’t know anyone, but I still decided to run for school vice-president. I used my ability to lead and ended up winning by a landslide.
