I would like to be apart of ASB because I’m interested in helping Medea be the best school it can be. I always like to learn new things and I will appreciate new experiences learning from seventh and eighth graders. I am responsible and I am excited for my leadership skills to be tested. Also, I will gain more responsibility and learn more leadership skills throughout my time in ASB. As part of ASB, I will be able to work with other students who have similar interests and want to be fellow leaders at Medea.
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.
1.) believe that I maintain the Four Pillars that National Honor Society is looking for in a student. I demonstrate Scholarship by getting good grades. Last year at the end of the 1st Semester, I had a 3.7 grade point average. During the 1st Semester, I was busy juggling The Musical, Drivers Ed, and Group Speech.
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, the greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring to your own life.” This quote clearly explains what service truly means to people that care about others from their heart. National Honor Society is an organization which recognizes students’ achievements not just with exceeding grades, but with service, leadership, and character. Serving others is an important and valuable pillar of the National Honor Society.
Boy Scouts has taught me many skills and truths for life, but no skill has had as much impact as servant leadership---the ability to gain the trust of those around you by helping them. Being active and a leader in a group happens naturally now; after years of following, I find myself leading my friends. Whether it was because of being a Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) and Eagle Scout in my troop or, I have drawn in new friends who have grown to look to me as a leader. At the beginning of this school year I drew in many new friends who look to me as a leader. This year I was fulltime dual enrolled at the University of North Georgia which gave me the opportunity to make new friends.
I am deeply honored to be one of the many students to be considered for the National Honor Society. This is something I have been looking forward to ever since I left my former school 's National Honor Society. As my dreams of being inducted are slowly getting closer to becoming a reality, I truly really what qualities are to be shown by those who get the opportunity to be considered. Not only would it be an enormous honor to be accepted, it will show that hard work and effort truly pays off.
I have had the honor of dedicating much of my time and devotion to the many volunteer opportunities in a variety of venues. Working for the local soup kitchen as a cook and server for 3 years, can definitely humble a person. Setting up and assisting in the churches, Festivals and fundraisers as well as their school nursery program. Working in the capacity of repairing and cleaning forest trails in Central New York State Parks and Warren Island, Maine. Of course, my time spent being a Boy Scout for several years, only just touched on the experience I would later bear.
When I was a young girl my mother use to tell me “The same amount of work you put in is the same amount of reward you will receive.” This specific saying stuck in my head, because I interpreted it as If you want to educate others you must first educate yourself. I felt to accomplish this it would be best to join groups that would improve my personal and professional skills. This was my motivation behind doing things like pursuing volunteer groups, jobs and mentoring positions. My current positions are a job at my local H-E-B, Social media director of an all girl group called Ladies Of Distinction and a position in my school’s National Honor Society.
I have had the opportunity to be in Honor Society since the end of my sophomore year. Though my school does not pay the fee to be part of the National Honor Society, we hold the same values. To qualify and remain associated with Honor Society, I am required to demonstrate excellence in areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Most people think that grades are the most predominant characteristic of Honor Society. I personally find that the community service we do is the most important and rewarding.
I learned something very important as I visited and did research on Palm Beach Atlantic University; it is a place where the spiritual aspect of my life could be an integral part of my college experience. I believe that at PBA. , I can achieve both my short- and long-term goals as someone who wants to follow in the path God has laid out for me. I look forward to intertwining my Christian beliefs with my academic and social endeavors at PBA, knowing that God has his hand on my shoulder leading me in the right direction. The morals and policies of the school fit me as an individual because I choose to be involved with activities that contribute to my personal and spiritual development.
