There was so much bonding on that team, lots of fights too, which made you really get to know the girls honestly. I love my team to this day and if I wouldn’t have joined that team I would never be who I am today, that’s a fact. B. That team is the reason I made friends in high school and why I learned to be myself and step out of my comfort zone. It may have taken me 4 years but I did it.
I kept score at every game and helped my coaches with anything they needed. My perseverance helped me adjust to the situation I was put in and let me overcome my injury. This skill has definitely assisted me in many things in addition to missing out on my junior year softball season. For example, I grew up in an interfaith family. As a result of this, I got used to always having different holidays and family events to participate
I continued striving every day and ultimately the practice paid off and I won an invitational my eight-grade year and winning was the greatest sensation I had ever endured. As the years have gone on, I have worked harder and only become more passionate for the game. I have endured an abundance of success which included advancing to state this past summer and competing there was like a fantasy. Discovering the game of golf sprouted a passion within me and that passion grows more each day. I have learned that I relish the journey of success and admire seeing results.
One of my dreams is to be part of The National Honors Society and be part of the family; I am already part of The Spanish Language Honors Society and want to further build upon my academic career. I have demonstrated leadership, service, character, and scholarship and I hope to be inducted into the society. Even after I get inducted into the society, I will continue to volunteer in my society; as of this summer, I hope to be volunteering at Atlanticare. Volunteering in my community has been a great experience and I can not wait to extend it with a new chapter of my High School career. I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school. The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis.
From the age of 14, I participated in enhancement projects at my high school and began volunteering for the City of Keller, feeling further connected to the city. My desire to service my hometown continues to this day, and I continue to volunteer through my city every time I come back during my school
My family did not let me give up on my dream, and they helped me prepare for the next year’s tryouts by driving me to club tryouts, countless lessons, and intramurals. Daily, my brothers and I would practice in our backyard just tossing the ball around. Every day, I would get better, serve the ball further, and my confidence would grow. My dad encouraged me to try out for club team, and even if I didn’t earn a spot on the team, at least I would gain practice and experience. I tried out for four club teams, and I didn’t earn a spot on any of them, but I believed my skills were improving.
During my years of community service, I have done multiple projects and activities through different clubs such as Key Club. In the years I was in this organization, I have done over 50 hours of service every year. I really enjoyed doing the homeless sleepout project that impacted the community by raising awareness of the homeless. I started Key Club my sophomore year of high school and fell in love with volunteering. I have done the homeless sleepout project two times.
Many times I will have to skip events to study and struggle to find time for all the relationships I have developed. Time management and persistence have allowed me to overcome this problem. Regardless of how busy my social or extracurricular life becomes, I always make time for school. I have had a great high school career, earning all “A’s” over the past four years. I play varsity for all three of the sports I am currently in and are going to be promoted next month at my job.
I am honored to be eligible amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction within the National Honors Society. Being an active member in this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard it as a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefitting children, the elderly, and the needy .These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career as oncologist and leave an impact on my fellow community members. The National Honors Society is a remarkable organization for someone who demonstrates leadership,
