Throughout my high school career I have encountered the chance to experience the position of being a leader for my peers. I have pursued leadership skills by being an officer in HOSA for three years, leading community service events for NHS, and taking charge on running school events in Key Club. I have obtained valuable leadership skills throughout my high school career, and encouraged the club members to take charge and develop leadership skills to help them in the future.
On September 19th, Auburn High School's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) partnered up with Nemaha Advocates Drug and Alcohol Awareness to host a trash pick-up! 24 members of FBLA were split into groups and sent to four different locations: the city Rec Complex, Legion Park, the Sunmart/Pizza Hut area, and Rotary Lake. Students then began to pick up any litter they found, and tallied it all up into different categories. These categories included tobacco, alcohol, medication, and other.
Pollution is an issue that could potentially cause damage and recycling conveys an important role. An issue we currently phase is trash segregation, students aren’t recycling or separating trash as they should. As mentioned earlier, mindset is just as important as action - they have careless, ignorant mentalities. What my project proposes, are two main part the action and the mentality transformation. The action idea is to develop as community service recicle trashcans with that from the outside look the same as what its entering in them, an example could be a trash can full that physically look like a plastic bottle, so students only troth there there plastic
Have you ever walked around a school campus just minutes after the lunch break? Well if you have, you may have observed the absurd amount of wasted food spilling out of trash cans and scattered around the concrete floors. It makes you realize how much food we waste daily, and how preventable that is. With that, it is mandatory that Mills High School should be required to have composting and more recycling bins around campus, this would be beneficial to our planet and the upcoming generations.
Leadership is a very difficult yet gratifying role to play in Garden City high school. Throughout the school day I feel I put in a surplus of effort in everything I do from homework to being kind, but a lot of the time I feel I am not noticed and that is what I think is the biggest challenge of being a leader; not being noticed but still going on in what you do, also whenever things go wrong the leader is the first to be blamed. So if your wanting to be a leader you're gonna have to be tough and confident.
The second service-learning experience with the DNA club was a roadside clean-up on Highway 16, near Pettibone Beach. There were 18 of us who spent 2 hours cleaning up the half-mile stretch of highway. It was amazing to see how quickly our garbage bags got full. With every piece of garbage, I picked up, I found myself becoming more and more upset. It is difficult to fathom how individuals in our society resort to throwing their garbage out of their windows, rather than recycling it or throwing it in a receptacle. Ordinarily, it doesn 't seem like a big issue, the trash can quickly accumulate on the sides of the roads. This can pose major environmental issues if wildlife such as birds, turtles, and fish eat the trash or become entangled in

While the activity was heartfelt, educational and rewarding to all involved, this show and tell should have been in the form of pictures, not left in the front of campus for the entire community to see. Tomorrow, the same people who visited our campus today will witness the same pile of wet trash. A clean-up activity entails pick-up and disposal. We had one mama-san on campus today, and her supervisor instructed her to leave the trash as she wasn't able to remove it all by herself.
Have you ever thought about what the Eastern Shore would look like without so much waste? Throughout the Eastern Shore there is garbage everywhere, all because people don’t think twice about where they put their trash. Littering is a very serious problem it causes pollution, which is the reason for global warming. When you litter you’re polluting the air; polluted air is very dangerous for your body. Also when you litter you may receive a ticket that's not really worth it, when you could throw your trash in the garbage can. So, stop littering and help make the Eastern Shore beautiful again by picking up the trash around you.
Us as Huskies need to respect the fact that we are a pack and packs clean up after each other. Not just as an individual, but also as a school we need to have a sense of courtesy towards our school. Whether it’s helping someone pick up some books that they dropped or throwing away yours or a friend’s trash. Our job as Huskies is to make a strong, safe, and healthy learning environment. Remember we are the face of the school and we need to realize that we are going to have to make decisions for the new students coming to CHHS. So let’s teach the new Huskies early that cleaning the campus is a very important part of their education. Many students think that if they leave their trash that somebody will clean up after them, but they need to realize
In order to reduce littering in Briarwood, one way is to make contact with the residents who have lived there most of their lives; the school within the neighborhood should raise awareness through a community day. Essentially, it would be taking the job of all the environmental clubs, but put it in one day. This day would be a school day, but instead of learning hypothetical subjects, they would learn about the potential risks of not cleaning up in Laurel, and get the chance to show what they learned. The demonstration part will have the students create their own project ideas to clean up the neighborhood, and to inform others. With an adult and a group, they would choose the best solution out of all proposed solutions, then get it approved.
I believe that this problem can be solved because they have been starting to involve students in recycling in the lunchroom and around their school. In General I believe that people will start to see that we need to do more recycling when all of our backyards become landfills.
recycling campaign. The only way to do that is to help make recycling appeal to more of the vast student population that currently attends our University. How might this be done? The University already places a recycling bin in every dorm room around the campus; anything more would exceed the current funding for the recycling project. Perhaps the institution of a recycling center at the Russell House could cause the impulse to become a habit. But, that would take too much money--with the salaries of workers and the annexing of what would amount to a new wing of the building--to consider for too long. Another solution could be to have the students elect a "recycling committee" to evaluate the problem and decide on the appropriate solution. However, I feel that with the current lull in our recycling campaign, even that would be ineffective. As an altrenative to these two solutions I propose that we, as students and faculty united, institute a plan that is so simple it is already in place in many of the high schools around the state. I propose a system of rewards.
Along with its age, our school is far from pristine with trash lining the bathrooms and cafeteria. Toilet paper and paper towels lie at the feet of trashcans due to laziness. Such views are unattractive from both an aesthetic and green perspective. To combat such negligence, efforts should be made to keep Sharon High School tidy and comfortable. Sweeping floors, wiping tables, and picking up trash helps the school maintain a pristine
It is evident that even students of elite schools throw garbage on the ground even in the presence of garbage bins. This shows our attitude towards cleanliness and hygiene.
