Sophomore year my friends and I formed the Supporting Minority Students’ club in an efforts to discuss issues of diversity and minority politics while serving as a support group for the small minority population (especially the current 1.6% African American population) at our school. As the secretary, marketing manager and web designer, I make all the promotional posters, announcements, schedules and contest along with creating and updating the club website. After attending a multitude of, volunteering events, club fairs,showcases, orientations, and meetings we finally were able to gain recognition at school and amongst administrators. Our club helped to influence the creation of a school diversity council and diversity day to bring more awareness to the
Often, they promote fundraisers and school-wide events to raise money needed to make these specific changes. To participate in high school student government, a large amount of prior leadership experience and creativity is needed. Peer counselors have the role of leading and guiding small groups of younger individuals through their difficult time transitioning into high school. Through advisory and prior experience of high school life, incoming freshmen are given an abundance of advice and aid. Peer counselors are not required to, but should have a great sense of the meaning of leadership.
Although I had some pretty hard setbacks, I did have great times as well. Some of the successes I had, before getting kicked out, were being able to make friends with two new teachers, that the school had hired, when the new school year had started. My American Government teacher was Mrs. Elizabeth Adkins and my CP English 3 teacher was Miss Robyn Spangler. Another success I had was making great grades and attending the rest of the time I had spent at the school with my boyfriend, Brandon Crawford.
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
The past four years of my life hold both my highest of highs and my lowest of lows. High school can be a very awkward time period in a person’s life. Four years ago, I made the intimidating switch from St. Mary’s School to Algoma High School. There were certain aspects of high school which made me nervous, but academics was not one of them. I learned how to be a responsible student in my earlier years, and school had always come relatively easy to me.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year.
Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
I managed to graduate with straight A’s, and received a scholarship for “excellent study results”, something I am very proud of and still value highly. I was born in 1999, but due to me being a stubborn child in preschool, I persuaded my parents and teachers into letting me
A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest. In addition to Student Council, I am responsible and dependable as a student and fellow peer. However, the reason why I feel I need to improve my leadership is because I need to demonstrate more leadership within the classroom. I will do this by speaking up more, offering opinions, giving feedback to the teachers on common issues all the students are facing, and so
My junior was much better than my sophomore year, my grades improved a lot, I didn’t skip class or leave the school. My sophomore year was different from my freshman year, well my freshman was the best year in high school for me; I went to Shaw where I had already knew everybody and all my cousins went there. The school itself was better for me, I was more focused at Shaw than at Collinwood. I had Honor roll and merit roll at Shaw and at Collinwood my grades were terrible. But I can’t blame to school for my actions I choose to make.
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
I have a natural enthusiasm and like to promote causes I believe in. I would love the opportunity to help promote the University of Dayton by working as a tour guide or helping in the Admissions office. I like to stay busy, and juggle lots of activities. As a member of student government, I chaired Homecoming Week both junior and senior years. Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of.

As a student, I participate in many clubs and extracirricular activities to promote myself as a positive leader or influence to others. I always maintain an A gradepoint average so I will have better chances for college and other future educational needs. I participate in National Honor Society, Peer Mediation, and Reading Team for clubs. In National Honor Society, we are prepared for leadership and a general lifelong success. In Peer Mediation we promote the idea of problem solving with the process of doing so by putting peers together.
In the United States alone, 40% of food gets wasted. Robert Lee is a person who was taught not to waste food and understands what it feels like to be hungry. He is a hero by many people because he helps reduce food waste and reduce the amount of hunger all in one non profit organization called Rescuing Leftover Cuisine.
