On April 26, 2017 I was made eighth grade secretary. Last year Mrs. Trimble, our advisor, just had us in her advisory. Thirty minutes a week to organize immense school functions for a little over one-thousand students wasn’t enough time, imagine that. This year we have student council as an elective class, so we are allowed more time to do what we need to. This is extremely nice because we have a lot to do as a board. Student council positions in high school can open up opportunities to apply for scholarships and prepare you for future jobs. Soon enough, I’ll start thinking about those possibilities, but all the worry is worth
Elections were held and I was elected President of both clubs. Ecstatic, I felt that this year would be different. The sponsors seemed eager to help us accomplish many things while doing their best for the school. As NJHS President, I could influence top students in the school, but as S.G. President, I could accomplish much more, or so I thought. Immediately, I asked students
I have always been in love with the game of softball. I love all the competition and the thought of working at it brings joy to my heart. I could always go to the field to get my mind off things and just focus. But in May of 2015 my life changed and I had a whole new mind set on everything.
When I lived in North Carolina in 2012, I lived in a small school within a tight nit community. From day one I felt as though I didn’t belong, and the ones who made me feel most out of place were my teachers. My teachers told me to leave and go back to Maryland because if i stay I would fail. I couldn’t believe teachers would say that I was so shocked. My teachers rarely attempted to help me with my work as if I was unteachable because I didn’t learn as fast as everyone else.
Living in Small town located in the Central Valley in state of California. I began my freshman year in 2012 at the Avenal High School. My first day of class and everything seemed to be new for a fourteen years old teenager with big expectations about his future education .Dealing with new people and teachers that I did not back time, I go used to them. Attending to school seemed to be easy when it is not, but also it is not hard if you have determination and discipline. I can tell that I have not fallen my none of classes. There was moment when I got lower grade because I have not been paying attention to the lessons that the teacher was teaching to the class. The mistake of getting lower grade did not make a weak student. I learned to
You would have never thought that life could fall apart and then come back together just in a blink of an eye, could you? You’re right, no one could ever thought of that, because it never happens. One day everything is fine and moving smoothly and then it just all
When I first stood at the bottom of the B-building stairs on August 19, 2013, almost every sixth grader was anxious. We were all waiting for the three-chime bell, and when it did ring, we all stampeded up the stairs like a herd of elephants. But I don’t think that it had ever come to me or any of my peers that change would hit every student, including myself at fifty miles per hour and as loudly as the sound of our feet running up the stairs.
In 2014 I began attending Chase High School. I would always joke about how I would be the one to get lost and hide in a locker until three o’clock but when the first day rolled around I wasn’t nervous because I knew most of the seniors and I was
Oak Ridge High School helped to make me the person that I am today. Before coming to Oak Ridge High School, I did not realize the potential that was inside of me. My teachers really cared and provided encouragement and opportunity. Classes such as Teen Leadership, communication apps and football helped me build character and perseverance. Additionally, I learned to make better choices.
I am currently in my Sophomore year at Loveland High School. I have been working hard toward saving money for my own car so that I am able to commute to work and school. I currently have my temps but will be able to receive my drivers license on
As President, I have more sway and responsibility than ever, and I’ve worked to completely overhaul the club for the better. Even though I’m writing this in October, I’ve already lead the club in creating a program called the Kindness Kloset where students in need can come pick up a variety of hygiene products, and I even brought the program into the Sullivan County Public Library so that the whole community could involved by donating items. We also threw out fundraising where students were required to go out and sell products in favor of hosting events, like Daddy-Daughter dances and Mother-Son game nights, that not only raise funds for the club but also help bring families together. As I type this, we’re gearing up for the third annual Trick-or-Treat Canned Food Drive, where we expect a bigger turnout than ever. I’ve become the confident face of the Sullivan High School Key Club, and I’m just getting
Coming into Cactus High School, I was eager to be able to participate in the clubs offered and so far I’m greatly satisfied. Currently I’m in art club and and photo club as a regular member. To say nothing of, student council has been at the top of my list in regards of what had me delighted to start high school since day one. Our current student council is doing fantastic with being active, but I believe we could go even further with our efforts of contribution to give a voice to our fellow students. There is always room for improvement, and I’m sure I could help make it happen. This year, and for those to come if I’m elected, I would like to see the student council body round out and polish it’s relationships as a whole. We could do more fundraisers within the school and plan/participate in events outside of school, like walks for the disabled/needy or organize friendly competitions like school wide scavenger hunts between classes/clubs. I’d love to see student council connect with the other clubs more and plan to do events coinciding with each other. There could be art sales with art club, or stucco could participate and support clubs like robotics at their competitions like we do with our sports teams. So many possibilities and paths have opened up to me since I’ve decided I want to run for vice president in the student council body. I believe we could make these possibilities a reality with hard work and
Honestly, Enloe wasn’t the only high school I was considering. Although I knew that most of my friends were going here, and I knew that it was typically a smoother transition for Ligon kids to go to Enloe, I thought about going to Sanderson. One of my sisters goes there, and we live just down the street. Being able to walk to and from school would be really convenient for me. What really kept me from going there instead, was the fact that I wanted to be able to figure my own high school experience out. I spent a lot of time when I was younger trying to figure out if my opinions were really my own. Enloe offered me a place to get involved in chorus, potentially get involved in soccer and to experience the independence that high school allows. Having an open mind is an important trait to me, and I didn’t want set ideas for how high school was going to be for me.
A picture is worth a thousand words; however, I cannot submit a photo in my personal statement. If I could, It would be an image of me, adorned with American flag patterned leggings, a full sized flag, and intricate face paint, standing in front of my school’s sign which proudly reads “Atholton High School” in kelly green lettering. The face paint, which is my favorite aspect of the photo, covers all of my fair complexion with vivid red and white stripes on the right and a deep blue speckled with tiny, white stars on the left. A scintillating smile covers my face, despite the disappointment I felt for not being able to fit exactly 50 stars on upper quarter of my face. This moment was captured three years after I was introduced to what I believe
In the Spring of 2015 all seniors were all excited and happy for all their activities they had coming up. Friday, May 15, 2015, at Americus-Sumter High School all the seniors had planned to do a prank at our very last pep rally/Cinco De Mayo program at the school. So we all got in one big group text message and had everything all planned out to the exact time and everything. Many then left the school piece by piece to get lots of water balloons, silly string, party poppers, and party confetti. As the day went by we had to struggle to get the water balloons filled with water and had to find places to hide them from the janitors and underclassmen. In the process of trying to find hiding places we came upon abandoned cooler so we started stashing the water balloons in the cooler until it was time for the big show down. After we got half of the balloons filled up many decided they wanted to go ahead and throw a few water balloons and spray silly string in the halls. We were hyped, excited, and ready for the final show down at the end of the day.
