The Pillars of National Honor Society have influenced my life even before I recognized what they were. For Scholarship, I have spent the past four years dedicating my attention to my studies. I’ve spent hours after school studying particular tests. Matter of fact, I spent my seventeenth birthday taking a mock exam for my Calculus test. I’ve always kept my goal of succeeding in mind and worked hard to make my family proud. As for Service, I’ve always enjoyed aiding others in any way possible. I find a particular sense of fulfillment when I’m able to be of use to others. To me it’s so much more than getting the service done, it’s about making a difference in someone’s life. I come from a background where very few people helped my parents when
As I embark on the newest chapter in my life it occurs to me that I must first take time to fully process and appreciate the magnitude of what it really is to be a Warrant Officer in the United States Army. From my own perspective as well as the perspective seen from society I can see my new responsibilities will hold a paramount position in many different aspects. This being said, I can look forward to a major shift in what my focus will be and how my decisions will directly impact those around me.
Over the course of my academic career, I have developed several positive traits that make make me a qualified candidate for National Junior Honors Society. My experience from being in a variety of school clubs and leadership positions has equipped me with the necessary character traits for an aspiring National Junior Honors Society member.
The United States Marine Corps (USMC) develops 14 leadership traits, these are the foundation and guidelines used by Marines in order to create and develop invincible warriors. However, some of these leadership traits have been losing significance among many sergeants. One of the leadership traits that lack the most amongst sergeants is “Initiative” due to micromanagement by senior leadership and technology.
I have found that being a leader means more often being a servant and volunteer. I don’t get much acknowledgment for the extra hours I spend every practice prepping or taking down the equipment. That's not the reason I do what I do. To put it simply, band taught me to care. Band taught me to care about my family at home, my family at school, and the random freshman I see struggling in the hallway. With this fundamental change in my attitude, I became a new person and since then I’ve only gotten stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally. Without this activity I would have been stunted, I would have remained the overweight introvert who didn’t fit in during middle
When it comes to leadership, there is one thing that I am very proud of. As a senior team captain and unquestioned leader I had a massive task on my hands this year. Coming off of a winless season the football team was lacking commitment and and there were many questions about how the teams was going to bounce
In developing this paper on leadership, I examined what was most important to me as a leader. As I reflected on my leadership philosophy, I thought about my experiences and the principals that I have learned through my own self-discovery and the observation of other leaders that I have had throughout my life. My leadership philosophy paper will focus on what leadership is to me, core values, and knowledge of others.
From contesting for this position to getting elected and working for betterment of my house group, I gained a lot of experience and self-confidence and became more responsible. Being a vice captain, I played an important role in addressing and motivating students, advising and helping them, and earning points for my group by participating in many competitions alone or in a team. I also served as the student voice of the school to a variety of external and internal constituents. The student council served as a bridge between the students and the school heads and administration.
Last year as a member of National Junior Honor Society I learned that service is not all about helping people, but giving of your time, treasure, and talent. It’s about humbling yourself and saying, “What I want to do is not as important as what God wants me to do.” Even if the work you do begins to seem monotonous and pointless, you have to trust that there is a purpose. Another thing I learned was the way NJHS members are
What does service mean to me? This is a concept that I have been considering in great detail. I have always loved doing community service and giving back to the community. However, I never thought of what my life would be like without community service. The definition of service based on the Oxford dictionary: "The action of helping or doing work for someone." 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
I have been blessed with many great opportunities in the past three years to serve and increase my leadership skills. I have played soccer for my high school, and was voted Team Captain of the varsity team by my teammates. I absolutely loved growing closer to each one of those girls, and being an example to them both on and off of the field.
" In the military, I learned that ‘leadership’ means raising your hand and volunteering, for the tough, important assignments." -Tulsi Gabber
Specifically to the officer over a platoon or unit, who might not be in control, but is directly responsible for these troops. He/she has the responsibility of the daily processions of hi/her base; His fitness and his/her troop’s fitness level; a command climate where practices of integrity can be adhered to even when he/she is not present.

Not committing to the task could potentially suggest that they were incompetent or lack the capacity as a military personnel so facing ‘dangers’ was a much preferred option. Additionally, discipline in the military can be seen when an officer makes his salutes appropriately, their conduct, to the state of their uniform and even how they present themselves in public. While discipline in military is rewarded as it is a sign of respect and duty, misconduct on the other hand is punishable. When discipline is lacking in an army personnel, it not only affects their own performance but also the team as a whole. It is therefore important to instil discipline early and effectively.
