It is a great privilege to be considered as a member for the National Honor Society. This organization being based on grades, service, leadership, character, and scholarship is exciting to me personally because I work hard not only to achieve these principles, but to display them to others as well. I make it a point throughout my day to offer help, encouraging words, and a smile to the students that I am in contact with. I demonstrate leadership and class on the basketball court by working hard, along with exhibiting a positive attitude toward the referees, my coaches, my teammates, my opponents, and myself. This honor would mean the world to me because I strive daily to demonstrate each of the qualities that this society represents.
Throughout my high school career I have participated in many activities and been awarded many great honors. As a member of my high school color guard, I have led as co-captian and captain for four years, traveling across the country to compete. Beta Club has given me the opportunity to serve my local community and create a service project to reach the globe. I was asked to lead the volunteers at my church for the early service in the children's ministry area my sophomore year and I continue to serve in this position. During my junior year I was acknowledged as a junior marshal, a Wofford Scholar, and a Presbyterian College Scholar.
I have several notable accomplishments, most of them are of academics. Some of the awards/accomplishments that I can recall ever since I was in middle school are: First position on spelling contest, department award for the most Helpful student, Student of the quarter, Presidential award for educational excellence (Gold Seal), 4.0 Honor roll, Indian Classical dance, Achieve3000 state winner, department award for “Excellence in English Language Acquisition,” and Academic Excellence Lettering Award. Among all these awards and recognition, I consider Achieve3000 to be the greatest because it was a state level competition and was moderately competitive to win. In the Achieve3000 program, basically, an individual has to compete with the students
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
Being nominated for Michigan Junior Honor Society is a big deal and accomplishment for me. I really value education and I feel that this will really help me with my education and in being a better person. As my teachers did, I believe I would be a good student for MJHS. I do all sorts of activities in and out of school and in the past I’ve done many things to give back to the community.
Receiving the recognition as a qualifying candidate for National Honors Society gives me great esteem in accomplishment. This translates to me knowing that my hard work has paid off and one of my first steps in the leadership of this community as well as larger roles can be pursued. I believe that my time as a National Honors Society student of Carteret High School can be trusted for the benefit of our society because I have proven to possess the qualities of good character, leadership, service, and scholarship. My time awaits to provide our community with the leadership it needs while at the same time leaving an example of a great student for everyone to reflect on for the betterment of themselves.
“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.”
My nomination for membership into the National Honors Society has been an honor. The hard work I have been inputting into high school has not been unrecognized. This brings too light that I have achieve my goals to do my best in anything big or little, and to stand out among my peers.
The Principal’s Honor Roll Award that has been awarded to me fits into this category because in order to get awarded, I have created a passion and have worked in developing my grades over a period of time. In my last award, it “Certifies that Bryan Garcia Mazariegos successfully completed the Spring 2017 semester with a Grade Point Average of

One of the awards that I was honored to receive was the Christian Citizenship Award. The Christian Citizenship Award is an award at Saint Patrick Catholic School that is given to a student that best exemplifies the Christian values. It is given to the student who normally goes above and beyond of what is expected.

I have participated in cross country and track and field and have gone to the state championships three times. Academically I have acquired a 4.28 G.P.A and I rank seventh out of 87 in my class. While I was in sports I excelled academically and was awarded Nevada All-State Academic Team for three seasons. I am part two clubs, National Honor Society and Future Business Leaders of America. I am proud to be vice president of Future Business Leaders of America, to help coordinate the underclassmen so they can keep the club alive in the following years. One of the most memorable accomplishments in my high school career is receiving Rotary Student of the Month for math and social studies.
