“How JROTC has prepared me to be a better citizen of the United states of America”. JROTC has prepared me to become a better citizen by teaching me how to use leadership skills and be able to cope with subordinates. It also has prepared me to be a better citizen by showing me what the 7 army values are and what they mean. Some of the army values are respect, honor, integrity, and personal courage. JROTC has showed me how to do things different from the way I thought things should be done and how to march and be able to keep a company and platoon together when marching. Since I know a lot about the JROTC I am able to help other people become better citizens like I was taught. I am also a better citizen because i have the discipline not to do certain things that I did before I took the JROTC class.

I have done my best in school. I have always gotten a grade better than a A- in school. In order to achieve this, I do extra credit when it’s given, go in early to class if I do not understand a concept, and get homework done in a orderly manner.
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”, quoted the famous Albert Einstein. Most people don’t care what happens to others who need the help. Luckily, we invented food banks, Wounded Warrior Project, and plenty of other things. I would like to be part of National Junior Honor Society because the very origin of the society came from service. I realize that to be a part of the society, I will need to work hard to get where I want to be.
The University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) is a vast, state funded college in College Park, Maryland. The college was established in 1856 as Maryland Agricultural College. The five star started in 1989 on a 420 section of land grounds.
I believe that my involvement in the National Junior Honors Society could change my future significantly. It is an outstanding opportunity to develop many skills that can be used in high school, college, and my future career. It will improve my leadership abilities, oral skills, and will give me the chance to work with many other people. I understand how prestigious this program is and I am prepared to be a member of this very beneficial organization.
I would be a good representative for the National Junior Honor Society. I believe this because of two things. The first reason is that I get exceptional grades. I try my best to maintain my average over 95. I do not fret when I get a bad grade. Instead I think of it as an opportunity to try even more on the next test or quiz and a chance to learn from my mistakes. The other reason is because I enjoy helping others. I like to help my fellow classmates with their homework if they do not understand it.
I wish to be apart of the National Junior Honors Society because I have always been a determined and hardworking person and being accepted would continue my journey of greatness. In all the activities I have participated in, I don’t ever do it for acknowledgement or respect from others. I do it for my enjoyment and success.

UIC Honors College has always been my ambition since the day I decided to go to college. One of the main reason to go to Honors College is because it gives me opportunity to work with Excellent Professor and also learning under their guidance is the prestige experience that I want to gain in my life. Not only that, by getting those need and merit based scholarships would help me fulfill my priority, to support my family financially. I want myself to be part of the leadership opportunities that the honors college offers. Moreover, being a constituent of the community that encourages the development of academic excellence helps me to gain important parts of my life that will be helpful in my future. Moving forwards,
Transferring from a two-year institution to one of the most protégées HBCU's in this country was one of the best life decision I could've made. The astrosphere at my HBCU is second to none. At the point when untouchables specify my establishment first thing that comes to the theme is the legendary "Marching Storm" or our world-class nursing program yet this is simply to give some examples. But with all these incredible trademarks I as an understudy still face worries about foundations with living arrangements, financial aid, and the absence of the educational programs field to consider in. These are just a few concerns to name that rarely gets the mention by outsiders looking in that I as a Prairie
This past year, I have been motivated to keep up my grades and work hard because of Adams' National Junior Honor Society program. I have aspired to be in the Society since I read it over the summer on the Adams website. I was so excited when I received this letter because it meant I had a chance at making the program. I want to be in NJHS because it will teach me how to manage my time, organize events, and work with others. Working with others who also value academic success contributes to my will to be in the program. Together, we can help each other grow and thrive in the community. We can also collaborate to help those in our community who aren’t in the position to speak out for themselves. I read about an NJHS group that organized an event where they donated toys to children who are less fortunate. They spoke out in school and changed the lives of many young, unhappy children through the program.
To prove that this is a relevant problem at CHS, we personally set out with a series of two interviews, a survey, and a social experiment. The first interview was conducted with three random students at CHS to exemplify first-hand accounts of the problem. After questioning two sophomores and one senior, all three recognized that many students at our school are callous and cold towards others they don’t know. Saying “People at CHS can be mean and disrespectful if you try and talk to them without knowing them.”(Fernandes Interview) This was also the reason all three stated for not wanting to make more friends at our school. Clearly the results concurred as every single subject showed an obvious disdain towards social interaction with others in general, outlining the evident problems our school faces with claims such as “ I don’t like constantly meeting new people, it puts me out of my comfort zone.”(Fernandes Interview) This mindset displayed by one of our students shows how many others at our school view it as their personal choice to neglect interaction with their classmates.
