National Honor Society Junsu Yoon After I came to SJNMA, I had run into lots of troubles. As a new boy who came after the military training was over, I had to caught up with all the school function by myself. I could not imagine succeeding or even making stable life at the school. However, I have challenged myself throughout the year, pushing myself to be the better person tomorrow. There were few challenges I faced in this school such as academics, athletics, spiritual and character development, and the military traditions. As a foreigner who has English as a second language, English had majorly let me down in Academics. Usually, I found myself lost during class and did not understand anything, but when I reviewed in Korean, it was easy. Therefore, I figured out understanding English is key to success. To improve my english, I start to talk more to other people, revise same essay over and over again, and studied same thing in korean, and back to english. It took more time than others of course, however, I manage to …show more content…
Therefore, I had always seek my chance to take initiative and help other people. It is also my main reason why I have chosen SJNMA, to learn how to lead others. As a new boy, I had observe lots of leadership, saw how good leaders act, and also saw how to fail as a leader. With that observation, I had became team leader which is the first step for leadership position. It was small role and there were not much to do. However, whenever I had chance to take over my team members, I tried to find efficient way to lead them and guide them. Of course, it did not work out all the time. However, with this experience, I made my position up to Ops NCO this year, which is 8th in charge of the company. However, I am still not satisfied with myself, because I want to use more of my experience to more people and know what works well for me and my followers and what does not
I love to learn about history and other countries in World Studies. Above all I love to learn more about Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit, and the Bible through Christian Studies. I show leadership because of many reasons. When we are put into groups in classes or at my youth group, I lead the rest of the group, keeping them on track and doing what we are supposed to. I have led the tech team at my church for our middle
The National Honor Society’s theme for this year is “Envision Success: It’s achievable.” The theme basically says that you should always strive for being successful because if you try enough it can happen. Envisioning success can range from simply wanting to be successful to going out of your way to assure that it happens. Success can be achieved in different ways depending on the task. It all starts with a single thought that should be followed with a plan.
42 Reflecting upon the entirety of my academic career, I am astounded to consider the accolades bestowed upon me, some of which include ACT Plan Scholar, AP Scholar with Distinction, Socastee Junior Marshal and Scholars Academy Distinguished Junior, Erskine Fellow, Coker Scholar, Wofford Scholar, Presbyterian College Fellow, and a member of Phi Eta Sigma at Coastal Carolina University. Current club involvement includes the Scholars Academy chapter of the National Honor Society, engaging in various community service opportunities and school functions such as ice cream sales, open mic nights, and more; also a member of the Scholars Academy mathematics club and technology club, participating in mathematics competitions, technology fairs, and Rubik’s Cube solving
Service, leadership, character, and scholarship; these are the fundamentals that the National Honor Society has based themselves on. I, as a student at Forney high school, am going to try and live up to each of these standards in hopes of joining the NHS. My qualifications may be unique; however, I believe that I fit the requirements in order to become a member. Service, how have I served or can be of service. When it comes to the topic of service most think of community service or serving a table.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is a notoriously prestigious organization, and it is possibly one of the greatest honors a student can earn in their high school career. Becoming a member of the NHS can open many doors for students, including leadership experience and opportunities for college scholarships. Admission for this program is based on certain ideals. The criteria for admission-scholarship, service, character, and leadership-are four areas in which, at least I believe, I excel. Even when I was a young child, I was very concerned with school.
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future. I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader.
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. 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.
It is an extraordinary honor to be considered as a candidate for the National Honor Society. Being considered means I have achieved my goal in demonstrating my determination- in school and outside of school- and my willingness to aid people in my community. Being a part of such a prestigious organization is an enormous responsibility to which I will fully devote my time. Ever since I was a freshman, my goal was to work diligently to be among the highest scholars and to be accepted into this scholarly “hall of fame”. 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.
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. I know the importance of education and feel that I am a lifelong learner. I feel very fortunate to have been raised in a family where education is a priority.
Service, scholarship, character, and leadership are the four pillars that make the National Honor Society stand out from other organizations. Espousing these pillars, I find giving back to the community very important, which I show through my service with my church, ELO tutoring, and NHS activities including the OGES Holiday Shoppe and FHS tours. As an officer of the NHS, I will ensure we incorporate a variety of service opportunities to maintain this crucial aspect of our organization. My scholarship is displayed through challenging myself academically with a schedule containing a majority of AP courses, and involving myself in other honor societies including Mu Alpha Theta and Science Honor Society. With a commitment to learning, I feel
When it was time for me to begin taking on the role , I started off very unsure and low confident... However , the group respected the orders I gave and understood the power I had at that moment of time and did what I asked of them to do. As time went on , I developed this wave of power , the kind of power you develop when you achieve a goal. As the group listened and everything went smoothly , the nervosity soon lifted off my shoulders and that ridiculous fear of leadership soon melted away.
Reflection of My English in Brown School Almost three months has passed since I came to St. Louis. In this period, I realize my progress in both my English expression and the coursework in Brown School, but still confront some challenges. Primarily, it is demanding for me to improve my English communication in academic settings.
Self-leadership in its basic form is the leadership of oneself. However, how one leads themselves and if they do so effectively determines whether their leadership journey will become a transformational one (Neck, Manz, & Houghton, 2017). This transformational journey of self-leadership must begin by discovering one’s vocation, mastering mindfulness, and feeding one’s curiosity as these three tools lay the foundation from upon which to build. Self-Leadership Self-leadership is how one influences themselves to achieve their goals or objectives. It is grounded in behavioral and cognitive strategies and “addresses not only how but also what and why” to aid in positivity and productivity (Neck et al., 2017).
