We do this at our annual chapter banquet where awards are given, and scholarships are given. Being such an active member, and juggling school along with a part time job at Pizza Hut, I was fortunate enough to get two scholarships from the FFA Alumni Association. These accomplishments and the money awarded are helping me pay for the books I’m using in college today. My hard work as an FFA member and officer had definitely paid
I believe Sharon Driedger deserves a strong consideration for dietetic internship program. Ms. Driedger is a hardworking person, enthusiastic and active always putting the best efforts into her work. As a summer intern for Penn State Extension in Montgomery County two consecutive summers, she has consistently produced a high standard of work. Sharon’s time with the organization she wrote news articles, implemented a chefs camp to 20, 8-13-year-olds, developed and co-taught 750 youth, nutrition lessons throughout Montgomery County’s zip code disparity communities, and provided nutrition related make-and-take-it at our 4-H fair where over 3,000 young families visit. Sharon effectively manages her time, is an exceptional group member in team
Acquiring a job, whether it be in a doctor’s office or a fast-food restaurant, can transform a person. Jobs tend to educate employees, either indirectly or directly, both about themselves and life in general. In Climbing the Golden Arches, nineteen year-old Marissa Nuñez discusses how her employment at McDonald’s transformed her into a mature and skilled employee. Within her personal narrative, Nuñez mentioned how she faced both pleasant and unpleasant circumstances while working at McDonald’s, all which prepared her for her future career. At McDonald’s, Nuñez learned how to fulfill her role of being an employee by becoming an expert at all the placed stations, dealing with the various types of customers she encountered on a daily basis, and
One past leadership position that I held in high school was the presidential seat of National Honor Society. Through this leadership position, I’ve gained communication skills between teachers and fifty students in the organization. I’ve promoted and facilitated community service activities. I’ve also learned to engage actively with colleagues and branch out of my comfort zone, especially when it is something I am passionate about. As the president, I delegate responsibilities to board members that I worked closely with to achieve the organization’s goals.

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.
I am honored to be selected as an applicant of the Westlake High School National Honor Society. I would seek admittance to the National Honor Society because I wish to give back to the community and being part of this organization will assist me in my career path. The National Honor Society is built upon four pillars which are character, scholarship, leadership, and service. I believe I posses the characteristics embodied by the four pillars of the National Honor Society because I have solid study habits such as reviewing my notes and paying close attention in class. I am a well mannered student who always comes to class on time and prepared to learn.
Growing up, I attended a very family oriented school that has helped me to grow, by exposing me to people who perform care taking roles. My involvement in the National Honor Society and other activities helped me mature and required me to develop the four pillars of personal leadership, service, character, and scholarship that allow me to connect with different people outside of my peer group. Immersing myself in these social groups, guided me to fully commit to and carry out many responsibilities. Since the ninth grade, I have been a part of my high school’s basketball team, which has taught me leadership and enriched my communication skills. Being a member of high-school teams helped me understand that sometimes I need to drop the walls I keep in place to allow my team members and I to work together as one family.
Mentoring younger students during my lunch times in chemistry, taking part in speeches with the debating society in school, captaining the school 2nd hockey team, as well as house cricket team and representing local cricket team in the regional and national competition, winning numerous trophies and medals, playing tennis and going to the gym regularly, I have the art of time management, leadership qualities and organisational skills. I feel these interpersonal skills are essential and will be a great asset as I train to become a doctor. My passion and resolve to pursue a career in medicine is not a starry eyed one, but grounded in real life and based on in depth consideration. I believe that my enthusiasm and drive along with my experiences have equipped me with skills necessary to be resilient in the face of challenge and to relish any difficulties. Furthermore appreciate the opportunities that come alongside being a doctor in the evolving field of
Good morning, to the Headmistress, Madam Jane, fellow teachers, parents and dear students. First of all, I like to thank the organizing committee of this Entrepreneurship Day for giving me an opportunity to talk today. I am honoured to be invited here. This school was a place where I shared many moments while growing up. For my speech today, I want to talk about “Why breakfast is the most important meal of the day?”.
By graduation, every student knew each other and felt connected as Keller graduates. Due to a small student-to-teacher ratio, we were able to bond with our teachers. Many of our teachers continue to serve as our mentors. Our schools also taught us the important of service to our community, enhancing Keller’s already communal feel. From the age of 14, I participated in enhancement projects at my high school and began volunteering for the City of Keller, feeling further connected to the city.
Both my siblings had been involved in the club, so I started right out freshman year by attending the after church meetings. I have been involved in various fundraisers the group has done for their annual mission trip. I have also participated in the annual coat drive each fall, and the Super Bowl Sunday fundraiser that benefits the local food kitchen. Since I first joined, SMYLE has provided me with many opportunities to combine my faith and service to help contribute to the community. Service and leadership have been important assets that I have worked at achieving all throughout and before high school.
That passion for cooking was further developed at Dallas Independent School District; where she served 29 years as a culinary supervisor. The children often referred to her as “Momma”, because of her mentoring, encouragement and loving heart. During her tenure, she was recognized with several Budget and Sanitation Awards and acknowledged for
I also helped run our school carnival and class booths. My suggestions that were used were the bottle flipping race and treasure hunt. As part of my responsibilities as class representative, I was responsible for getting supplies, setting up and taking down the game, and running the game when students came to play. I am a very good student, I have always earned 4’s and 5’s in every class, social skills, and work habits. I was also involved in a program called women in history at my school.
Some of the most effective methods for training the kitchen staff include role-playing, classroom learning, games, internships, educational DVDs and textbooks. Role-playing most definitely works. When I was participating in a restaurant management class during my junior year in high school, we were tasked with setting up a mock restaurant business and to take turns assuming different roles. More times than not, I assumed the role of manager, and boy was it stressful having everyone report to me for every little thing. Still, the knowledge I learned in the course was invaluable.
