I, Madeline Robinson, believe I would be a suitable addition to the National Honors Society Club officers because I am a well-rounded student who receives pride in helping others. I have been involved in National Juniors Honors Society and National Honors Society throughout middle school and high school. I have enjoyed serving and helping my community over the years, and look forward to being involved for another year. Therefore, I would share this pleasure of serving with my fellow student body if I was chosen to be an officer. Another reason I trust I would be a fitting applicant are my leadership skills.
On April 26, 2017 I was made eighth grade secretary. Last year Mrs. Trimble, our advisor, just had us in her advisory. Thirty minutes a week to organize immense school functions for a little over one-thousand students wasn’t enough time, imagine that. This year we have student council as an elective class, so we are allowed more time to do what we need to. This is extremely nice because we have a lot to do as a board. Student council positions in high school can open up opportunities to apply for scholarships and prepare you for future jobs. Soon enough, I’ll start thinking about those possibilities, but all the worry is worth
National Honor Society is composed of four pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. I believe that I have shown these four characteristic traits throughout my school years, however, I identify most with character. The character pillar is necessary for me to express the other traits of each pillar.
For those you who do not know me, I am Carissa Dorval and I am running for the position of Executive Board Treasurer. There are many reasons why I would make a great addition to the Student Council team. Over the past three years I have held many roles that needed me to posses leadership skills such as, Sophomore Class Treasurer, and being a member of Spirit Committee. Being Sophomore Class Treasurer, and a member of the Spirit Committee has given me the skills I would need succeed as a member of the Executive Board. My role as Class Treasurer last year has given me experience planning all of the activities that student council has authority over such has Toys-for-Tots and Field Day and my involvement in Spirit Committee has given me experience
I was chosen to sit on the committee due to my many years of service in the education system. I bring 15 years of experience as an educator, coach, mentor and supervisor. This experience in the k-12 setting has allowed me to work with hundreds of teachers and administrators. During my tenor with the school district I have been asked to sit on dozens of committees, from curriculum, book adoption, finance, to diversity just to name a few. I hold two masters degrees in education; which has afforded me the knowledge and wherewithal to prefect my craft.
The five areas of excellence recognized by National Junior Honor Society are developing character, scholarship, leadership, service, and citizenship. I believe that all of these different areas are important for children, teens, and even adults today.
I have been attending Anthem Prep for five consecutive years and I am applying the role of Freshman Class Representative. To make it more interesting for our students to get involved, Anthem Prep has been making changes to its student life and topics relating to it. Though our school has made significant progress, I believe the upcoming student government will improve our student body and their lives on campus.
It is not only a privilege, but also an honor to be considered for the National Honor Society. Members of this organization thrive every day and excel in the areas of character, leadership, and service. During my school career, through achieving goals in these areas, I was able to better myself and I continue to work to do so every day.
I believe that I embody the National Honor Society pillars of character and leadership both inside and outside of school. I exhibit strong character in the way that I treat my friends, classmates, and acquaintances with respect and kindness. I try to be inclusive and welcoming to others, especially if they are in a situation that is uncomfortable for them. As someone who has attended my school for 11 years, I feel a responsibility to include students who are new to the school. I have a few friends who transferred schools in middle and high school. During their transitions, I have tried to include them in my friend group, invite them to school activities, and generally make them feel comfortable at their new school. In this way, I demonstrate
Character. Scholarship. Service. Leadership. These are the four pillars of the National Honor Society. Leadership is more than leading, it is guiding and helping others to complete a shared goal. It is knowing when you are not the expert on a topic and letting someone else take the reins. I believe that I have this quality and, therefore, a leader.
A leader is someone who possesses the qualities to both set examples and work well with others while at the same time having enthusiasm with fair judgment that is presented in a positive manner. Being the oldest sibling in my family and oldest of seven cousins has helped me develop these traits that a good leader possesses. in the activities I participate in such as helping instruct during youth baseball and basketball camps. I am willing to grow more and lead as I grow older. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society would allow me to develop important leadership skills that would benefit me later in life. I aim to be a leader and to use my knowledge to advance the causes of the organization.
National Junior Honor Society is a great opportunity for students to show their leadership and collaborative skills. I would like to serve as secretary in the 2016-2017 school year because I am dedicated to what I do, and I enjoy being involved in school and helping others. I believe I can take on the responsibilities that come with the job and am qualified to serve because I am dependable and curious. My curiosity leads me to ask questions, which will allow me to know as much as possible about the meeting and the meeting procedures. I am also organized and neat, which enables me to make sure everything and everyone is present at the meetings and to also be aware of the calendar and the growth of the committees.
Character is intertwined through the principles of ethics, poise, and candor. Through activities inside and outside the classroom, I have dedicated sixteen years to the pursuit of achieving perfect character. Joining the National Honor Society would allow me to grow as a person, and would further develop my character for me to serve as much as I can for every individual.
Natalie Sterling, a seventeen year old senior at Ross Academy had just won class president and beat her opponent Mike Domski. Mike was the kind of guy that Natalie and her best friend Autumn tried to stay away from. The girls at Ross Academy were known as demeaning and “boy crazy.” One day, during the pep rally a bunch of freshman dressed in trampy clothing and started to dance inappropriately. The leader’s name was Spencer a girl Natalie used to babysit for. The flirty freshman called themselves “Prostitutes” or Ross Academy prostitutes. Not only was Natalie embarrassed and angry by Spencers action but, she was disappointed. When the principal and Ms. Bee the student council head were talking to the girls punishments Natalie barged in. Natalie explained how she wanted to have a lock-in for all the girls in trouble and any others from school who wanted to come, about feminism and women's rights. Ms. Bee and Natalie agreed that it would be a good idea for
