Good Evening, I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming all of you into the National Honor Society, a group built off of high standards of achievement, not only in the area of academics but also in character and leadership. I congratulate each of you and your parents.
College Completion Rates In today’s society, children are taught as early as kindergarten that attending college and receiving a degree is a must, however over the last decade the state of Texas as well as the United States as a whole has seen a significant decrease in the number of students who actually go on to obtain their degree. The real question is if educators are pushing so hard to convince all students that they need to get a college degree, then why are we seeing such mediocre percentages of students actually achieving that goal? There isn’t just one answer to that question, but there are multiple factors that come into play regarding students not being able to finish college. At the end of the day getting a higher education is by far one of the most important things a modern day America citizen can acquire, the higher the completion rate the more efficient the United States will be in the long run.
I am an active member of my school and community. At school I feel that i've gained the respect of my peers being elected as Student Council representative for the past four years. I have also been elected the treasurer of the choir, and secretary of the band. I am part of the Ross Middle School bucket drumming group and have been casted as part of the school theatre’s annual play. After school on Wednesdays I assist Ms. Rullman in helping students with homework and enhancing study methods. I am currently participating in science olympiad and have in the past. I am also an anchor on the popular Good Morning Ross Middle School weekly news show. In addition, I have been a part of National Junior Honor Society which takes part in service projects
That is exactly what I did. I am glad I fought because if I didn't fight I wouldn't be here today to tell you my story that has made me who I am today. Even though I had some difficulties learning in school I didn't get discouraged I tried my hardest and wouldn't give up and because I didn't give up I am currently nineteen years old and about to graduate from high school and have been on honor roll for four years in a row and was inducted into The National Honor Society my sophomore.
Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.
The Morehead State University Honors Program opens the door to many great opportunities which include, but are not limited to, a semester-long internship with a legislator in Frankfort, a summer research program for aspiring physicians and dentists, and a year-long volunteering experience working with children in an after school program.
Hello, fellow classmates, it had come to my attention that a facebook group for AP Chemistry is needed. Much is appreciated to invite others currently in AP Chemistry at the moment. Throughout AP Chemistry I wish you to have a fantastic and wonderful year throughout class. Also,
English class seemed to be the most dreadful to take within school. Writing essays for most of my grade in a class is not what I was looking forward too. When I entered college I knew that it would be one of many challenging classes I would have to take. Starting from the lowest English class to moving on up, the writing assignments became longer and more thought out. The time came when I got into this class that I knew more work was going to have to be put into essays and thus brought out what I had not seen before in my work progress.
Hello, FYI-JoAnn and I had a conversation this morning, as I am extremely concerned about the number of DAY (TUG) students that are wanting to enter the SPS program only to find out that their intentions are to proceed back to the DAY (TUG) program as they get closer to finishing their program. Case in point, I have a Caroline Womble who has applied to SPS and is cleared to do so, but from information told to me, she walked last spring but needs 5 more classes. So would she be considered a SPS grad or DAY (TUG) graduate when she finishes? There is also Haley (Hedgepeth) Canovai who while at the moment has an account balance, plans to enter the SPS program for BA Liberal Studies, but wants to transition back to DAY to finish as a Communication
Good afternoon, Tarina! The fact that Bethel University has a policy that requires all students to use APA formatting is the right approach to ensure we are giving the appropriate credit to those professionals who research and developed the materials. I agree with you that it will help us be more
I don’t even know where to start with this State of the Union Speech. I thought it was incredible. It was well written and wasn’t full of bogus. As a kid who is confused, and sometimes even scared of politics, I could understand it. One major thing that stood out to me was the talk about America’s strength. My fellow students at school have no faith in our country, and always go around saying, “Obama sucks!” I always knew that they were wrong, but sometimes watching the news, I worried. It seems nothing good is ever happening. Reading the President's speech, I now know some of the truth, and it has calmed my worries. Another thing that stood out to me was the climate change stuff, that is a big worry of mine. Yes, it has been proven true
Good Morning. Hope your Friday 2/10/2017 finds you well today. So Terry, I believe it almost 3 weeks casting and I try sending to the web week ago, I sent a letter in answer for Hope and Naomi. Even fought whether send the letter to find someone would respond probably and because no one got back to me could you please answer... Then when we got home last night 2/10/17from practice Naomi asking again did someone call, did we receive message it would ok that no call ,if no every said that everyone would receive word. No tears, this week like last week or; they said would call everyone, and even If they did not get in. Hope Elizabeth has slightly autism so she’d believed people when they have said something is going to happen like calling, they
Imagine that every high school senior in the United States was tested and then upon graduation assigned to a career based off of their score. Wouldn’t that be horrible? The world would be filled with people who hate their jobs. This is just a quick example of how a single test doesn’t define our future or who we are. Standardized tests like the SAT and ACT are extremely useful for college admissions officers but the tests are way too emphasized in the college process; this is why the exam makers should improve the exams so that the emphasis put on these exams matches the results it gives back.
1. I would like to enroll in the Senior Honors Program, because I think it will be an excellent way to complete my experience as a sociology undergraduate student at UC Berkeley. Since transferring to UC Berkeley in the Fall of 2015, many of the courses I have taken have

This year I am in seventh grade my goals are getting my grades up, running the mile faster in P.E., and respecting my teachers.
