It is my profound pleasure to recommend Nakhim Seng for the C.C. “Jitter” Nolen Spirit Award. Nakhim is an intelligent and intrinsically motivated person. More importantly he feels no need to be the center of attention, but if he finds himself there he handles it like a seasoned veteran of the world. I am honored for the opportunity to have witnessed his strength of character as it has propelled him into adulthood. Put simply, Nakhim rises to every challenge he sets for himself and rarely needs anyone to raise the bar for him. He is truly a self-motivated, self-starter who loves to discover the mysteries of the world and who revels in their unraveling. To say it is a pleasure to write this nomination is an understatement.
Students are nominated by their teachers and guidance counselors, and are judged on their intellectual engagement, creativity, and commitment to community. I was presented this award at the annual academic awards.
After receiving the award, I continue to visit the residents at St. Barnabas and share my gifts of music, by playing the piano, flute, and leading group sing-a-longs. I throw myself into my activities and do so with a happy, humble heart. An important quality I possess includes my integrity and respect. I always uphold strong moral integrity and respect those around me. I understand that you must treat others as you would want to be treated, and to be respected, you must do the right thing even when no one is watching. I am a strong leader as I am a person who takes action and gets involved, in order to help others and the team. When I see an opportunity to be supportive and to lend a helping hand, I jump in. I am not a person who sits in the background and waits for someone else to do something. I am a go-getter, who thrives on helping those around me. I am very organized with all of my activities, both academically and socially. I input over 200%. I understand that without a strong work ethic and passion, only the minimal will be accomplished. As Class Secretary for the past four years and as upcoming National Honor Society Peer-Tutoring Coordinator, I remain organized in sending emails, marking attendance, collaborating new ideas and fundraising opportunities, and encouraging others. I am an effective communicator as I understand that each voice matters. I do not speak just to hear my own voice, and I value the thoughts of others. I speak up when I have
I believe that I, Laura Benitez, deserve the Tim Acklin Award because I always intend to exceed the expectations that are given to me. I was raised and taught that going above and beyond is the only way to work. Whether it be in schoolwork or doing simple errands, working harder and doing more than is expected is what sets me apart from others. It is very easy to become idle and to find the easy way out, but I have aimed to always push myself and become engaged with stimulating groups of people. Throughout high school, I have held multiple leadership roles and committed to different activities. I was able to maintain these extra-curriculars, athletic training, and a GPA of 4.18. Even without official leadership positions, I always strive to be a helpful leadership position at work and especially in athletic training. I remember learning many skills from upperclassmen
Learning is a vital part of growing up. I find myself learning the most when I try new things and stretch out of my comfort zone. I know that this award will be all about trying new things. I have never asked for letters of reference or overseen volunteers for multiple hours, for example. I expect to make mistakes, however, I also plan on not shrinking away with failure but learning and growing from it. As the perhaps clichéd quote says, “What does not kill you makes you stronger,” and I hope to grow stronger by learning from the mistakes I
Academically, I have been very fortunate to be recognized for excelling at my studies and arts by Mill Creek Community Schools and organizations such as DAR, Purdue Universsity, ISAP, IHSAA, and NJHS. I have been selected to participate in various Leadership programs sponsored by organizations like the Children's Museum Power of Children, Butler and ? . However, of the numerous awards the most memorable was being the recipent of the Teresa McCoy Memorial Service Award. This memorial plaque which hangs in the Cascade Middle School lobby reminds us of her love for family and friends. Her huge educational influence and a remarkable impact on our community. It was an honor that I will continue to strive to fulfill To be described with a
“It was an incredible experience to see all of the accomplishments of the award winners, not just in their respective sports but in the classroom and community as well,” said Hensley. “Every single athlete had a unique impact on their school and community. I was so humbled to be included in such an ambitious group of individuals.”
Last week, a girl saved my life. I was about to jump off a building at school after suffering from depression as I had being severely bullied at your school. I'm moving schools on Tuesday but there was one thing I had to do before I moved, give that girl my gratitude. Giving my gratitude to her means to recommend her to your school. Though you may be wondering, why this school? After the incident, I decided to do some background studying on her even though now almost the whole world knows her as she is making news right this minute.
Throughout history, individuals have been given awards for unique qualities that person possesses. The people have been given things like medals, trophies, or rounds of applause from a large audience. Qualities such as courage, kindness, freedom, and bravery have all been given great recognition and seen as one of the best traits that one can have. But in this case, the award I am giving is not one of the above, but one that still deserves a little recognition.
The person that I am most grateful for is my beautiful mother, Yvette Visconte. She is very important to me and I love her with all my heart. I am going to show my mom my gratitude by reading her this letter.
My attendance every day resulted in such an award, I was one of the three kids who received the award. I take pride in having perfect attendance, and I like to arrive at events on time. Attendance is a critical skill for anything in life, but this skill seems to become harder and harder to find. Showing up to work or to an event is only half of the battle, however, it is just as important as the work
Thank you for that wonderful introduction, [announcer's name]. Ladies and gentlemen, it is indeed a pleasure to be receiving this award in behalf of my close relative, Celestine de la Paz, who unfortunately can't be with us today because somebody's too busy filming their next blockbuster in Hollywood.
Initially, I would like to express gratitude my supervisor Anup for all his important support and guidance throughout the year. His advice and academic experience was a huge help to me.
I often wondered if my mother would have chosen to immigrate to the United States of America, after repatriating to Holland, to begin a new life from absolutely nothing but the clothes on our backs for the second time, if my parents had stayed together. Was it their divorce that inspired Mom to lead us on our path to prosperity? Eventually I understood that my Mom’s ultimate motivation was her vision of a brighter future for her family, regardless of her marital status. In Holland, Mom could not bare to watch her mother be the sole breadwinner and living off a Dutch government's subsidized income was equally unacceptable. Following Aasje’s death, Evie observed Oma, overcome with grief, lose her spirit, and she aspired for a better life
