Throughout my high school career, I have been involved in different professional societies such as the National Society of High School Scholars, Mu Alpha Theta (Math honors society), and Business Professionals of America. My involvement in these societies has made me knowledgeable in the logistics of how to run the society, and have taught me valuable skills such as leadership and collaboration. For logistics, I can help organize events such as fundraising activities or philanthropic events as I am currently on the social committee for Business Professionals of America, which is in charge of organizing social events for my chapter. As an elected member for the social committee, my chapter has shown faith in me for my leadership skills and collaboration skills. Overall, I feel like I can contribute a lot of my skills and knowledge to UIC honors college.
To me, being a part of Florida Southern’s Honors Program would mean more than just adding knowledge to my area of study. To have the opportunity to be a part of this program would mean that I would be able to grow in more than one way. I would take the opportunities to lead in areas such as community service and I would recognize my responsibility to maintain good character as an example for my peers. To be housed with other honors students would give me the chance to meet others with the same drive that I have, even though they may be in a different field of study. Being around others that have passion in their work would push and challenge me to step out of my comfort zone. Knowing that I can help the community while expanding my knowledge beyond typical education, I am guaranteed that I will reach my goals.

It is unbelievable that this year is my last year in Charlestown High School. As I look back at the past three years, there were several poignant moments when I was struggling with my classes and would have given up trying to achieve my goals. But as a diligent student, I chose to endure those moments. And that is how I become an outstanding student today. National Honor Society honors students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Being nominated to become a member of the National Honor Society is a highly prestigious honor, and I am very grateful to be a candidate.
I am deeply honored to be among the exemplary students who are being considered for the National Honor Society. I must admit this is what I’ve been looking forward to since the start of my high school career. This organization is not only known for the student’s high gpas but the willing to set an example for others. Joining this prestigious society will present countless opportunities for me and allow me to grow as a person and do as much as I can for my fellow peers and community. I believe that leadership and character best complement each other because the scratch surface of a true leader, or look behind his or her her personality, you’ll find a good character. While scholarship and service complement each other because you must do your
Sheri L. Dew states that “True leaders understand that leadership is not about them but about those they serve. It is not about exalting themselves but about lifting others up.” Leadership, service, and character is and always will be very important to me which is why I believe I qualify and would be a beneficial member to the Valley Heights High School National Honors Society.
These men and women led the way to do what they have done, whether showing their leadership in the business world, the political landscape, or the high school classroom. I know that I have been a leader for my peers, just as they have been for me. When preparing for a presentation for the Delaware State Student Council, I found a quote by Tom Peters, a writer on business management principles, which really resonated with me. “Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders”. I have, since then, done what the quote says, and have built leaders in my peers and my friends. Leadership will continue to be a focal point of my character as a member of the Caesar Rodney National Honor Society, to better not just the people around me, but myself as
The National Honors Society is know throughout for having outstanding leaders and I would be honored to be in it. I believe I show qualities a leader has such as being a hard worker and achieving my goals with my grades and overall. I work very hard in school and out to achieve the grades I have. Last year I ended with a 3.8 GPA and am currently trying to bring it up or keep it the same. I always go in for retakes if offered and stay after for extra help if needed. Although I do always do this, it also makes me a little stubborn since I always aim for an A and if I don't get it I try again and again until I do. I am a leader by showing others to never give up and always try their best no matter what.
My commitment to the various aspects of the Texas A&M honor code is visibly apparent through my endeavors and qualities. My most notable leadership experience is my role as the Upperclassmen Professional Development Officer of the Pre-Medical Honor Society. This position has essentially allowed me to develop the skills necessary to work effectively work in a collaborative environment and offered me the opportunity to showcase my passion for medicine. On a larger level, I am tasked with organizing events that aim to create a sense of community among undergraduates interested in pursuing healthcare careers. On a smaller level, I lead a committee to assist in the planning of larger events. Within this environment, I am able to directly utilize my leadership skills of communicating, motivating, and delegating. Through communication, I am able to effectively recognize the skills of each individual and assign tasks appropriately. In addition, I strive to maintain an atmosphere of motivation through the recognition of individual contributions and highlighting the importance of specific events. Also, I am
As a student of The Pennsylvania State University, I have spent time observing my peers on a day to day basis. As a curious individual, I like to see how people act and what they do in and out of the classroom. I have paid close attention to the students within Schreyer’s, and I have even already taken some honors credits where I had the opportunity to work with honors students. Based on my observations, I have found the Schreyer Honors College to stand for three main things: academic achievement, leadership among peers, and community outreach. As a hardworking student, I strive to incorporate these qualities in my life. As a result, I am interested in joining Schreyer Honors College so that I may be able to have more academic, leadership,
I am deeply honored to be among the exemplary students who are being considered for the National Honor Society. I must admit that this is something that I have been looking forward to since the beginning of my high school career. I believe that this organization does great things in society and that I can play a part in furthering the impression that is made. I like to think that I deserve this honor and this chance because I have worked very hard to get here.
Using my leadership qualities to encourage others and uplift their abilities to their fullest potential will create a successful year for National Honor Society. Taking a leadership role in my freshman and sophomore year as a treasurer in Student Council has benefited my outlook of what it means to be a leader. As a treasurer, it’s my duty to have a clear vision of what is desired to be completed to benefit the whole class of 2019. I got out of my comfort zone and made a positive difference. I have continued to take up my leadership roles by running for officer positions and taking initiative by becoming chairpersons for multiple committees in student council. I built up confidence that leads to embracing change to council to benefit everyone’s participation and working
While there are many different organizations throughout the community that focus on service and helping others, what truly sets National Honor Society apart in my opinion is the emphasis that is put on leadership. While I have always been told that being a leader is important in daily situations and for future careers, I didn’t realize that leadership played such a relevant role in community service until this past year when I experienced it firsthand. I signed up to volunteer at a senior citizen Christmas party thinking I would just show up, get told where to help out, and then hopefully go home with some extra Christmas cookies, but what I didn’t expect was that I would be the one taking the reins and that my skills as a leader would be put to the test.
