The National Honor Society is built upon four founding principles: Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Service. I have a high school life filled with dedication to these four principles on the Spiritual standpoint, the Familial level, the Community level and finally at the National level. Moreover, I did begin my dedication to these same four principles even before this starting with the Boy Scouts of America and this commitment will continue along with having a rich future when I reach my fullest potential. I firmly believe that to have academic excellence is giving your best effort to maintain not just having straight As and a high GPA at or close to the edge of attaining a 4.0, but to also have the skills that help you perform your very best in college and beyond. To recap, it is having a well-rounded education with just the right academics and activities best suited to your
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.

If I get into NHS, it will give me a lot of opportunities to be a leader.
The first reason why I should be in National Junior Honor Society is because of my leadership skills. The first example of my leadership skills are applied to my youth group in the Cecilton Parish. I am the treasurer and help with the Ideas for fundraising. We, as a group held a spaghetti dinner for the church and I managed the money and the setting. Pursuing this further, I actively show leadership in school.
National Junior Honor Society is the start of everything. This group helps set me up for my years to come.

National Honor society was established to recognize outstanding high school students. National Honor society recognizes students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of academic success, leadership, character and service. I should be in National Honor Society because I think I represent a lot of the qualities needed to be in this organization. Throughout my years in high school, I have been very involved in the band program here at Langham Creek. As a freshman, I started out in Concert 2 band.
The National Honor Society is based off of four pillars; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Scholarship is one of the most important pillars to me. Scholarship means not only doing well in school and getting good grades, but applying what I have learned and using it everyday.

Today I am deeply humbled to be recognized as a potential member of the National Honor Society.

Through my relentless hard work and perseverance, I believe that I possess the four characteristics of a National Honor Society member- leadership, service, character, and scholarship.
When I was 14, I saw my remarkable cousin walk across the stage to receive her award for all her years of dedication to be inducted into National Honor Society. She encompassed all the requirements for entrance into the National Honor Society and ever since then, I have had my mindset on following in her footsteps and stepping even farther to conquer the indefinite.

Moreover, I have worked very hard throughout high school to better myself and those around me in the many ways mentioned above. I also serve as a role model, both inside the classroom and out, by pushing myself to accomplish goals even I do not always believe I could, always respecting others and listening attentively to the opinions of people around me, and making an effort to enrich the lives of others. I am hopeful the National Honor Society will help me develop this further, and thank you for taking hte time to read my application.
I have learned that even things like feeding someone a light meal or giving them a place to stay, has a dramatic effect on the people you help. Even though I only did a little bit of work, setting up tables and silverware,I think that this experience helped me understand the importance of the values the Gospel encourages. I have seen how the effect of practicing those values helps other people. I think that service experience brought about some justice. Before, the homeless men and women would probably be living on the streets by themselves without anyone to talk to or food
Since kindergarten, I have been involved in BSA (Boy Scouts of America), which brings much community service with it. The one instance that stands out most in my time in scouts was my eagle project. I chose to benefact a local ministry out of Binghampton that services inner-city youths by refurbishing a basketball court in the backyard of one of the clubhouses. Because it was a herculean task, my inability to delegate tasks was confronted. Seeing the finished product was rewarding; however, the real satisfaction came from the faces of the children who got to use the new court for the first time.
Volunteering has a lasting effect on the community due to the hard work and effort the volunteers put into to completing the task at hand. Howell’s article explains, “Whether it’s the money communities save by the hours volunteers dedicate, the partnerships that bring organizations together, or the much-needed services volunteers provide, community service projects have a measurable impact”. This quote stats that anyone can serve their community anyway a person see fit. Many homes and people’s lives have been effected by natural disasters. The destruction from natural disasters is one of the leading causes for people to help rebuild and help one another out of the goodness of their heart.
" I agree with this definition of service, the only thing that I would add is that service should be done with no alternative motives. However in many cases, this is not the case, people do service to help them look better or to improve their resume. In my case service means a lot to me because I remember when my community building me into the person I am today. I want to give back to my community because someone helped me. Service to me is giving back to someone else so they can to
