Since I was a freshman in high school, I have been a member of the Thespians Honor Society. Every year, a leadership team is elected to run the club, alongside the advisor. It is a student dominated club, and is fun to be a part of. Last year, I decided that I was going to run as Thespians President. I was qualified to run it and had many ideas that I wanted to have for the next school year.
Character, scholarship, leadership, service: the four pillars of National Honor Society. These pillars have led me to the person I am today. I became a member of National Honor Society my sophomore year of high school, since then I have volunteered more, focused more on school, and became a better person. I have always been someone to get involved in the community, whether it is within my school or not. I love seeing the difference I can make in someone life, just be lending a helping hand.
The National Honor Society helped me gain communication and confidence skills. It was where the top 20 percent of students gather together to volunteer and build leadership for their current clubs and future dreams. I enjoyed doing community services with this fantastic group because they have helped me become a better leader towards anything I wanted to be. While I was building my leadership I was also building my self-esteem. I was being more confident in meeting new people and giving out a speech in front of a huge crowd.
I have spent many years working to make my community safe and joyous place and in college I hope to do the same. Throughout my years as a Southampton High School student I have volunteered at various events, met new people, and tried my best to make the world a more content place. I have put in hundreds of hours and my entire heart into working to make our town the best it can be. As the Key Club President, Relay for Life Captain, and Class Representative I have learned the true meaning of what it means to be a leader and essentially a teacher. I have learned what it means to be a problem solver and to rise every time I fall.
Princeton is an institution, which has turned passionate students into passionate change makers, making positive influence on sociopolitical movements at home and abroad. The University and I share a common value; a sense of duty to create positive change in a myriad of environments, big or small. Determination and commitment is key to making a difference and this is especially evident regarding the author of this speech, Woodrow Wilson. Wilson’s resilience to complete the speech despite his physical obstacles exemplifies true strength of a leader. I have worked to make strides and become a leader through my advocacy work for the duration of my high school years.
From diabetic summer camps focused on leadership to fall retreats spent learning about what it actually means to be a leader, my knowledge of qualities including courage, integrity, and communication have expanded greatly. The Youth Leadership Surry program brings together a diverse group of young-adults to personally grow and enhance their awareness of the community. Participating in this prestigious program will increase the skills I have already accumulated and help me to be more successful in the
At the end of my sophomore year I decided to apply for Ambassadors for my Junior year. It’s a program at Poudre that goes into Freshman classes and teaches them about topics they usually won’t cover in normal school curriculum. I decided to join the program because I did a very similar program called WEB you could do in 8th grade where we went into the 6th grade classrooms and did the same thing. I was really happy when I got accepted into this leadership program because I had so much fun doing WEB. At the begging of the next year Ambassadors goes on a retreat together up in the mountains where we really start to bond together.
My sophomore year of high school I was able to enter National Honors Society that spring. As well as getting recognition for excellent grades, it has offered me the opportunity to work on leadership roles and also helped me get involved with the community. For volleyball, this year I received the Academic All State Honorable Mention award. This is a special award because to receive this award the individual has to meet both GPA and SAT/ACT standards to be considered for the award. In addition, I received the Richard G. Lugar Academic Award from the University of Indianapolis, where I will be attending in the fall.
I like to keep people happy. Giving back to those who helped you are very important. Even though I had so many responsibilities, I still had some fun time to hang out with my best friend. My freshman year, I already felt like a senior. It was my sister’s senior year and I was a freshman when we went to school together.
In high school, I was involved in the National Honor Society allowing me to serve my community on a regular basis. We participated in everything from picking up trash on the side of the road to raising money to support our local library. During college, I have been able to volunteer and participate in student-led research programs. I also enjoy getting to volunteer my time at my local elementary school as a teaching assistant. However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”.

Leadership, a drive to serve, and a strong character are crucial aspects of those who wish to live successful and prosperous lives, and unsurprisingly, are desirable traits for those in National Honor Society. Leadership is the ability to motivate, inspire, and guide others in forming a favorable outcome. Instances that I have exhibited leadership include being the captain for two years in a row for Black History Quiz Bowl and being both a counselor and teacher at a 4-H summer camp. The ability to serve helps bring out a person’s humility, selflessness, and deeper understanding of how the world interacts. Character is a culmination of traits that make up a well-rounded person, such as being altruistic or possessing comradeship.
