I am dedicated to helping out our community and school, because it warms my heart and soul. Seneca said in about 40 to 60 A.D. that you should “be silent as to services you have rendered, but speak of favors you have received.” In other words you should not boast about the numerous projects you have accomplished and how much physical work you executed, but rather pride yourself on how you helped people in community and school, and how you have affected their lives with positive means. I feel life is joyous and it should be the feeling everyone illustrates, and this is exactly what keeps me functioning in the stressful world today. I find comfort in helping others to make their lives a little more like heaven and this comfort motivates me to perform copious service projects to the best of my capability whenever I find the time. Time is fair to the rich, the poor, and to every race, because time is equal and gives everyone 24 hours daily to accomplish their required tasks. Because time is so valuable and I am occupied by difficult advanced placement and honor classes and juggle school, clubs, sports, and friends, I joined Key Club, a high school division of the adult service club, Kiwanis. Key Club opened new doors to make every extra minute count towards helping others.

- The National Honor Society is a goal every student dreams of, often from their very first day of high school.

The National Honor Society sets a standard of achievement every student should strive to attain.... [tags: High school, Leadership, Communication, Management]

- A person’s character is developed from their personal accomplishments, achievements, experiences and life circumstances. For me, many events have helped form me into the man I am today. Ever since I was young, my mother installed a sense of competition into me. I always had to be the best at everything I did; whether it was sports, school, or even a family board game at home, I had to win. I began playing every possible sport available since I was three years old and this only made my competitiveness thrive even more.... [tags: character, education, bachelors]

- I bolted through the clear door of a small, earth-colored high school, practically slamming the door behind me. Catching my breath, I stood in the school completely drenched and shivering. Rain pounded on the clear door behind me. I stood awkwardly on a mat in front of the doorway, trying not to get the floor wet. I gazed around the hall in front of me. I couldn’t see staff in the office, nor were any students in the hallway or in the classrooms. The entire school was empty. Must be a day off or something, I thought, blinking in surprise....

- 1. Academics have always been important in my life and my future plans. Emphasis was always placed on good grades and a full understanding of everything I learned growing up as a child and it still is being emphasized today. Though grades do not necessarily pertain to academics, it does reflect your knowledge in the subject. That is why I try very hard to keep my grades up and keep them high. The better I do and the more I understand, the more successful and prepared I will be when the future comes.... [tags: education, grades, leadership, society]

I was a natural born leader; however I do know when to be a follower as well. Being a part of the Eagle Echo, our high school newspaper, this year is a great example to how I am both a great leader and follower. This year was my first year as a staff member, so I was not familiar with how things worked. I followed my co-editors’ lead to better my skills of journalism and to prepare myself for the position of editor of the Eagle Echo later in my high school career. After getting into the swing of things, I began to feel comfortable and my true leadership nature began to take shape. Now at times I lead discussions on what articles we should write and why, and I try to pick up any loose ends I am aware of. I also always make the deadline, no matter what the cost, so dependability and reliability are major components of my personality.
I demonstrate leadership in the classroom and in clubs and I am strongly committed to the betterment of our community. Accepting me into the National Honor Society will not be a waste, because I will polish my characteristics of leadership and service, and focus my skills towards helping others. The work I will put into NHS will most importantly help me to direct my destiny towards the more constructive trail for my personality. I appreciate taking your precious time to decide on whether or not my personality and experiences are compatible with the National Honor Society.
