I remember looking to the left and right of me everyone seemed to be enjoying the first day of school. Everyone including myself showing off our clean new outfits we had bought during back to school sales. Eagerly waiting for the bell to ring; I remember walking around trying to find something to do as I wait impatiently for school to start. Trying to find something I can go and chill I walk over to the school gym, taking a look around me I see our school colors, which are black and yellow. Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress.
And for the briefest of moments, every last man at Shawshank felt free.” So when Andy slowly delivers hope in how he transformed the library and uplifted the prisoners with books. How he manages to get his fellow employees a cold beer for breakfast. Or the way he manages to escape so perfectly. We watch Andy Dufresne teach us what believing in ourselves and never letting anyone stop you from running toward what you want looks like.
Making a Difference In July 2014, Jarrett J. Krosoczka gave a speech titled “Why Lunch Ladies are Heroes,” during which, he talks about thanking school lunch staffs. He tells the audience how they often feel unappreciated and unimportant. This speech was given at a ted conference to many entrepreneurs and adults.
On June 4, 2003, world-wide known comedian, Will Ferrell delivered a very influential and amusing speech to the Harvard graduating Class of 2003. Ferrell expressed this graduating speech with something new and unique. He doesn’t present his speech like any other class day speaker; he is very inspirational and wants the students to see how different their life is going to be once they leave this graduation ceremony. Ferrell compellingly employs a very lighthearted tone, which includes humor, and pathos to effectively gain the audience’s attention and successfully tell students about the “real world”. Ferrell’s usage of a lighthearted tone throughout his speech creates a connection between him and his audience which lasts from start to finish.
Consequently, they decide to stand up as Atticus passes by to show their appreciation for him.

The morning after the trial, Jem, Scout, and Atticus head into the dining room to eat breakfast. Atticus is surprised to see that chicken and bread rolls are awaiting him.
Steve jobs open the speech by a compliment for the students on Stanford University “I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world.” First, he praises University by saying on of the finest University.

One of Mark Twain writing styles is social commentary. This is when he makes fun of things that he thinks people take too seriously. This is shown in the novel Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain. When Tom was in Sunday school and the guest speaker came, everyone was showing off to try and impress him(CX). “And above it all the great man sat and beamed a majestic judicial smile upon all the house”(Ch 4).
Walking into the gym on the first day of school for the incoming freshman is always an adventure. From the start I see many groups beginning to form, the athletes on one side of the gym and the artists on the other. As I watch these groups, I see a variety of different people; the people who never stop talking, then the people who are excited to see their friends but not excited about school, and finally the group of people who are absolutely dreading school and do not want to be in the gym. Watching the freshmen during the activities reassures my initial observation. There are a variety of different types of classmates helping to make the high school experience interesting and exciting.
A man of humble proportions and a delocalized figure, a man I may now recognize as myself. The thick curls that once occupied my scalp were gone with a few swift moves of an electric razor. My eyebrows, once bushy and untamed, now thin, straight and a little uneven. Natalie said once the caterpillars were plucked I’d really see the difference. She was right.
I Peter Walton should be selected as a member of the National Honor Society because I have clearly portrayed the four characteristics:character, leadership, service and scholarship both in and out of school. I have shown character in school by treating others with kindness and respect and have earned the citizenship award twice during my high school career. Also I work as a cashier at a restaurant and as such I must be very patient with all the customers which has made me grow in character. I have demonstrated the quality of leadership by assisting in class decisions as vice president and secretary, and by leading a second pardeeville curling team to the state tournament. In addition, I was a VBS group leader, meaning that I had to look after
Rodriguez uses courage as tone in a way by using his personal story of how he contributes to the class and how it motivated him to speak out in public. “One day in school I raised my hand to volunteer an answer... And I did not think it remarkable when the entire class understood.” According to this quote we can read how impressed he felt about himself speaking out to the class and amazed of how his classmates were able to understand him. Since Rodriguez was able to speak in class without being timid it gives him the courage and the power to express himself in public.
These men grew up when the Indian School was in operation and recall the impressions received from the Indian students, as well as the overall success of the school. Both narratives illustrate the interactions between the locals and Native Americans when the latter ventured into town on the weekends to shop at the local businesses. These interactions highlight the fraction of students that were welcomed by storeowners on the basis that they had money to spend. Flickinger illustrates that most of the shop owners preferred the male athletes as patrons on the basis that they had extra income to spend. This represents an example of favoritism from store owners in regards to the students.

Diversity Event on Privilege This diversity week I attended a seminar about acceptance and privilege, which was run by the members of the student senate. The meeting was interesting because it was run by my peers, and they incorporated many different cool aspects into their presentation. They opened the meeting up by us playing an ice breaker called Entourage where we all walked around playing rock, paper, scissor shoot while we walked around getting to know each other.
