I am extremely honored to be considered for the National Technical Honor Society. I have been looking forward to this moment for two years now. I strongly believe I would be a good candidate for NTHS because, I am a dedicated hardworking student who strives to be the best I can be. I also believe NTHS would be a great benefit not only towards my scholastic abilities but also to my character. As a student, I have set high standards for my future, focusing on my studies and looking forward to college.
“It taught me values”, “It taught me maturity”, “I’ve met and become friends with people in this program that I never would’ve associated with before”, “You gave us stuff we can use in the real world, like interviews, speaking skills, politics”, “Taught me self-respect and how to respect others”, “PT”, “It taught me about values and how to get along in life”, “It forces me to think about my future.” These quotes are from the Cadets of Somerset’s JROTC Program in Pennsylvania. The program needed “$65,000 re-occurring commitment by the April 12 (school board meeting) to begin the program again next year.” Rita Halverson, author of dailyamerican.com. This article is from April 08, 2011, meaning this website has been up for a rough four years and nine months. If this is what JROTC students thought about this program in 2011, approximately four years ago, imagine what those programs will look like in the future, say three or four more years. If this positive thinking continues, the experience will be much different, fresh, improved, and we will have a more positive impact, as a result.
Upward Bound, a pre-college program, has prepared me academically and socially. Every summer, I spend six weeks at the University of Eau Claire taking classes and going on field trips to visit a variety of colleges. Staying on campus and taking classes has allowed me to interact with a diverse group of people that I did not know before. Meeting new people has made me realize that I can be friends with other people in college. The classes that were offered helped prepare me for my upcoming school years.
Attending a community college was not always my number one choice for my college life after high school. I had always dreamed of attending a university once I graduated high school. Delta State was always high on my list of schools to attend, especially now that I have matured and experienced the first two years of my college journey. Attending community college was the fiscally responsible move for me after high school graduation. The two years I have spent at Itawamba Community College has given me the experience to take the next step towards my career goals; attending and graduating from a university.
I would like to be the student speaker because Washtenaw has changed my life in a significant way. I have learned countless life skills from going to school at Washtenaw Community College. By going here, I have gained the confidence needed to move forward in my life. I came to WCC as a high school dropout, with a G.E.D. I dropped out of high school at 9th grade to help provide for my family.
I want to create a class in high school that helps students get ready for college and help them apply for different post-secondary education. I want to have a job coach come in and work with my students a few times a month. I want to provide a service where I provide meals for my students over the weekends if they need it. I want to find a safe and open home for my homeless students to live in. I want to show my students that they can get a job and/or go to college.
Whenever the social workers would come to visit the children, I would always ask questions about their job and what it’s like to be able to help people. Growing up my whole life around social work, I really began to become fascinated by everything a social worker does. That’s how I decided this is the perfect career for me. I plan to thrive in college not just in the classroom,
At the end of my sophomore year, I received my first pamphlet for Franklin University. The pamphlet encompassed everything I’ve ever wanted for my education: a diverse student body, a multicultural learning experience, exchange programs, and teachings that reach beyond the classroom. Even now the pamphlet is pinned to my wall, and every time I look up to it, I think this is the place where I want to be for the next few years of my life. I’ve always been a student interested in learning about other cultures, traveling around the world, and expanding my perspective is of deep importance to me as a person. Franklin would be the ideal place for me to continue with this goal since Franklin offers those opportunities.
