The National Honors Society allows students to be build and create traits that are essential in a successful adult. I truly believe that hold many of these traits and joining the National Honor Society will grant me the opportunity to expand on these traits and grow as a person. Thus far I have focus greatly on the scholarship aspect of NHS and have been dedicated to my academics. I have held my GPA above 4.0 and have always been devoted to maintaining that high level of academic success. The skills I have shown in devoting myself to my academics can be easily translated into my dedication for the other aspects of leadership, service and character. Having previously held a officer role in the National Junior Honor Society I have gained experience

I expect a great deal from my time with Virginia Commonwealth University Honors College. I enjoy that I will have an adviser that truly cares about my wellbeing and education, and I believe this will help me succeed as I pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Biology. I hope to become close with the faculty and staff of the Honors College as I strive towards my ultimate goal of becoming a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon. Although I plan to commute to and from VCU for classes rather than stay on campus, the Honors College dorms are an extreme luxury provided to those students that are qualified. I also am ecstatic about the special classes and curriculum that is available to Honors students. I am pursuing VCU in an attempt to further my education, and I believe the Honors College is my best opportunity to do so. I look forward to exploring all the Honors College has to offer, and I hope it will help me to become a better student, graduate, and person all around.
Traveling and learning about other cultures have been an important part of my life. I am actually planning on taking a gap year between high school and college. I believe that the experiences and world perspective I will learn while my year in Italy as an exchange student will bring a unique perspective to the honors college. I also will be increasingly open to others openings, helping to create a more open learning environment, which I hope will pave the way for a success if I am admitted to the honors
Volunteering, in minor or significant ways, taught me that I could make an impact in the world and along the way build my character, experience the world, and develop better communication skills. I learned this at my local library, Fumo Family Branch. I aspire to become a part of the National Honors Society because I want to network with my peers and people outside of the Academy at Palumbo, improve my character and leadership skills, and give back to my community. I strongly believe that I am a great candidate because I possess the four pillars of the National Honors Society: scholarship, character, leadership, and service.
"Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike." Theodore Roosevelt. Students should demonstrate scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character because of three reasons. One, if students demonstrate these qualities they are more likely to get better grades and get reprimanded less. Another, without these traits, a student would have far less opportunities in the future. Finally, as students grow they will gain much more wisdom if they allow themselves to work on demonstrating these characteristics. Overall, these qualities are very important in the present, and in the future.
Sitting in Calculus 1152, to my left is an education major, to my right a business major, and behind me is a computer science major. Everyday, I split my time between high school and attending classes at Ohio State. It is through this I realize the diversity and opportunities at OSU. Students from across the state and around the globe with a variety of academic interests live, learn, and work together to become better citizens through education. This diversity, in combination with the breadth of coursework offered at Ohio State, will prepare me well to be a contributing citizen of society.
Well-rounded are the first words that come to mind when I think of Purdue students, especially engineers. I had the pleasure of meeting many influential Purdue engineers who have firsthand experience in the Honors College through my father’s work. These people exemplified the impact that is possible. This and their help has influenced my path in life.
When I first received the letter inviting me to apply to the National Honor Society, my initial thoughts were of appreciation for the recognition of my hard work during this past academic year. To think of myself as a member of the NHS is an honor that could have a profound impact on my future. Over the past several years I have driven myself to become a much more motivated person. Along with achieving a GPA of 3.67, which is a personal best, I have also motivated myself to lose 35 pounds, which has helped me to have the self-confidence to take a more active leadership role in encouraging others to live a healthier lifestyle. To be considered a member of this prestigious organization is both an
It is unbelievable that I have been selected to potentially become an NHS member. As I look back on the last two and a half years of my high school career, I realize there have been many times that I could have given up on trying to achieve my academic goals. I have had opportunities to cheat and lie my way through it, but as a meticulous student chose to do my very best the honest way. I have maintained a 4.0 grade point average, so I am an incredibly hard-working student. I promise to continue to work hard in order to keep getting straight A’s and that is only one reason I should be chosen to be an official member of the National Honor Society.
Throughout the past four years of high school, I have done my best to try and stay actively involved in the community. I have been presented with some amazing volunteer opportunities such as Huron Safety Town, STAR Leadership Camp, American Red Cross, and Huron High School Girl’s Basketball Biddy Program. I spent over 24 hours at Huron Safety Town where I was able to help young students, mainly those going into Kindergarten, learn how to stay safe while on the road. I was also able to spend over 24 hours at STAR Leadership Camp where I was a councilor to those going into the sixth grade. I made sure that each student understood the importance of being a leader in today's society and how important they are to Huron’s community. Through National Honor Society I have been able to maintain in constant contact, approximately 10 hours, with the American Red Cross by volunteering in monthly blood drives. I have also dedicated 16 hours of my time to those young girls interested in someday being a varsity basketball player through the Biddy Basketball Program.
I’m a determined person who believes there are no limits to the possibilities in our education. Since I was little, the challenge always passion me, and entering Nation Honor Society, has been a commitment over the past years in my school life.
Throughout high school, I have always been a part of high honor roll, and as a junior and senior, I have been a member of National Honor Society. Because I do not participate in sports, I have always been purely dedicated to my schoolwork and getting exceptional grades. Being in the Honors Program at LLCC would not only continue by achievements in academic honors, but help me grow in my goals and plans for the future.
I am hoping to translate my love for traveling and fierce passion for international politics into a career. By majoring in Global Affairs, I am planning to work with an embassy or with a refugee resettlement center. After graduation, the Honors college will not only add a dimension of prestige to my resume, but it will display that I am a competent, driven worker. Furthermore, the Honors college provides both opportunities and research experience that will prepare me for my career. In an environment with like-minded peers who value their education, I will be tested, challenged, and strengthened with a rigorous curriculum. I am a firm believer that as a student, even as a person, I am like a geode—I must be broken to see what I’m made of. Therefore, accompanied by my academic achievements, I have the tenacity and
If someone asked me where I am going to be in ten years, this would be my answer. I will have a great, high-paying job, and beautiful wife and family, and a nice sports car parked in front of my lovely house. When I look into the future, I see myself being successful and happy. Even though I always pictured myself this way, I never worried too much about how I would get there. I feel the Suffolk University can lay the groundwork for making these dreams into reality.
