My leadership role as co-president of National Honor Society has affected me greatly in the two years I have been apart of the organization. The organization has taught and grown characteristics, such as leadership, cooperation, and determination, in myself, and in turn I have spread to others. The organization has also shown me the importance of volunteering, and how I can directly contribute to the bettering of my community through volunteering. During my time in the National Honor Society I have completed over 130 hours of community service. This year specifically I have been placed in charge of the recycling program and the road cleanup program. The recycling program consists of placing bins in each classroom for paper and plastic products,

From all my research, the collaborative nature of the work at KPMG could be an incredible way to learn and prepare for my future professional career. I will bring my strengths as a natural leader and ease at working with and teams. Throughout my life, I have held leadership positions in most every activity in which I participated.

I started my job as an SI (Supplemental Instructions) Leader in fall 2015 teaching Calculus I. I wanted to be an SI Leader because many people have previously told me that I am a very good teacher and I wanted to give back to the program that helped me be successful and still continues to do so. When I first arrived at Texas Tech, I attending SI sessions because I realized that I needed extra help. SI sessions are 90 minute sessions that a leader holds twice a week every week. The purpose of these sessions is to present different study skills while reinforcing material that the professor teaches. To become a leader in a subject, I needed an A in that course. However, due to the lack of math SI Leaders, they were willing to give me a chance
This is Brendan Reese. I recently submitted my Candidate Activities Record, but I needed to make a change. Because I am graduating after this year, my band director wanted to select a younger section leader who would be able to lead next year as well. Although I was section leader during my sophomore and junior year, I will not be section leader this year. Thank you for your time and consideration.
As a young woman in the United States of America I believe that it is vital we learn to involve ourselves in our communities and understand the logistics of the government. I believe that the involvement of the Student Leadership Advisory Council would prepare me for future jobs involving government and involvement in my community. At John Paul II High School, I am a leader of the Ambassadors club. I serve and assist incoming freshman and their families as they decide on the decision of attending JPII. I enjoy advising and leading others in my school and community. When I was in fourth grade leading into eighth grade, I fell in love with helping special needs children. It has been an interest that I will want to pursue for the rest of my life.
Chapters 5 through 8 discuss what is leadership? Which author aligns with your beliefs on what is leaderships? Explain in detail. I believe leadership is very diverse and has many definitions depending on the situation and the individual’s involved. In my view leadership is one’s ability to make a positive impact based on the needs of many by influencing others to cultivate their vision. A leader has to foster an environment of trust, honesty, and professionalism while encouraging some fun within the workplace. After reading Chapters 5 through 8 I would have to agree with the authors of Chapter 8 by Hughes, Ginnett, and Curphy I strongly agree in a lot of the thoughts shared by the authors on leadership. I totally agree with the authors in
Many do not take the time to sit and reflect on ourselves. However, understanding yourself and identifying personal strengths and weaknesses will help you to develop as a leader.

The most important points discussed was mindfulness, managing your nonstrengths, and values.
As an ASB leadership student we represent the student body, manage the finances of other clubs with our business meeting, but the part I enjoy the most is we organize events such as dances, meetings, pep rallies, and assemblies. Pep rallies is where we can express most of our creativity from how we organize our class section since we make banners, decorations, as well as coming up with class rival games, getting clubs to perform, and introduce that season’s sport teams. As one of the ASB Co-president, our job is to come up with an organized schedule and finalize it with performers and given time for each part involved. Organizing the schedule with performances, announcements, and games involves thinking for the student body in what they’ll enjoy seeing more of. Coming up with games is where we think of new games we have not done in the past as well as creating ones people have never heard of to get the crowd going. After creating the games, we test them to see if we need improvements or any changes to what we made.
Not everyone is born a leader but with proper skills and training, leadership qualities can be developed in everyone. For that reason, I find it very important to take any opportunity to strengthen my leadership qualities in order to be an effective change agent in the future. Beta Alpha Psi strikes my interest because I desire the ability to expand my network with other high-achieving students in similar fields. I thoroughly appreciate and am very fascinated by nation-wide organizations such as this because I am always inspired by the accomplishments and experiences united with fellow members who share a like-minded discipline as me. My encounters with those individuals also motivate me to continue the work necessary to accomplish my goals
