The National Honors Society allows students to be build and create traits that are essential in a successful adult. I truly believe that hold many of these traits and joining the National Honor Society will grant me the opportunity to expand on these traits and grow as a person. Thus far I have focus greatly on the scholarship aspect of NHS and have been dedicated to my academics. I have held my GPA above 4.0 and have always been devoted to maintaining that high level of academic success. The skills I have shown in devoting myself to my academics can be easily translated into my dedication for the other aspects of leadership, service and character. Having previously held a officer role in the National Junior Honor Society I have gained experience
I have been a part of JROTC for the past four years of my high school career. During my time in the program, I gained more self-confidence and was able to venture out of my comfort zone, which allowed me to join numerous clubs and organizations throughout my high school career. The clubs include the Chess Club for one year, the Environmental Club and AFJROTC Honor Guard team for two years, and Science Olympiad all my four years of high school. The organizations include the National Technical Honor Society for two years and National Honor Society for two years as well and voted Vice President.
The fourth value enumerated in the Oregon State Police Officers Association’s mission is “to foster and maintain, among members of the Association, the highest standards of professionalism and devotion to duty.” A devotion to duty has become more to me than actively perform one’s responsibilities. What I believe has molded me into the young man that I am today is that I have set a precedent of service in my life so great that I want my entire to be devoted to it. Service has become the act that benefits and advances all people with the talents that I have been granted and in the ways I am trained to do, and I am in the process of dedicating my life to this continual form of duty.
Ever since I was a young kid I have always been interested in movies. My grandma, who was full of the wise the life experience left, always knew about my interest in movies. She feed my vain for the art. Even though her religion, she professed Adventist of seven-day religion, didn't let her go to the cinema, she always found the way to took me to the cinema. She and I enjoyed watch movies. We used to sit in the darkness room, with our faces illuminated from the reflection of the light which rebooted from the screen, both absorbs in the plot of the movie which made us laughed or cried. After the movie, while we went back to her home, she started to talk about the movie. She had a particular point of view where the main story
Beta Club provides students opportunities to serve their local and global communities through the donation of time, objects, and money. The planning for my personal service project began my first year in the club and has continued through this academic school year. Many of the projects in my school’s chapter of Beta Club serve the local community only and have no global impact. I began to search for organizations which work to benefit those in need across the globe and found Kiva. Individuals in every country can request loan amounts which are funded through micro loans by multiple donors. Loan requests range from agriculture and education to retail and food.
My father is going to retire in some years and my mother is a house wife. They both have invested in their house heavily therefore these reasons might affect my family’s ability to fund my college tuition.
One particular activity that I feel has made a difference in the community is my participation in Mini-THON, a student-led philanthropic organization that raises money for research in pediatric cancer and benefits Four Diamonds and Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. I have served as the Junior and Senior Co-Chair, or President, for the past two years, respectively. Each year, my responsibilities have expanded from simply attending meetings and contributing ideas for fundraisers, to actively coordinating meetings and organizing fundraisers with local businesses. For example, our club held our first annual “Teenie-THON” for elementary school students. We spent countless hours creating advertisements and permission slips for the participants.
The foreclosure crisis is the second major financial dilemma of the twenty-first century. To solve this, the roots of the problem need to be dug up and exposed followed by replanting with an appropriately improved regulatory system to help build stronger roots for the future. It seems that the free market system can't be free anymore given its intertwining roots extend way beyond domestic to international financial systems. There are two fundamental causes to the latest credit crisis: 1) poor quality securitized mortgages and 2) insufficient underwriting for credit poor borrowers. Secondary (downstream) problems making the financial crisis more complex include underemployment and business failures. Many banks,
My senior year has gone by so unbelievably quickly. It had been only four years ago when I first stood in front of the school a mere freshman. Throughout the years I gained a new experience that either made me a more global citizen or better prepared as an academic student. This year has been no exception and I feel ready enough for what’s ahead.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an organization that will go above and beyond to help the members achieve his or her goals academically. I have seen first had that this organization can and will help every college student that takes the change and joins. Not only does my local chapter recognize students for their dedication and hard work effort but also over the past year I have seen the difference this organization makes within the life of a college student.
I think I should be offered the KISD Education Foundation scholarship opportunity due to my strong commitment to the fine arts and my desire to preserve them from the likes of public schools' budget cuts. The preservation of the future fine arts is a topic that is one of the most passionate for me to speak on due to my yearning to continue to spread its gift to new generation of students. Schools around the country continually attempt at cutting fine arts to balance school budgets, but this cannot be allowed to happen. The fine arts provide a creative medium of expression and passion for high students across the country, and, by providing me this scholarship opportunity, Killeen ISD will also have taken their own step at preventing these forms of expression from vanishing from our public-school system.
I intend to use this scholarship to help pay for my tuition and books at the Southern Arizona University of Phoenix- Online. I would like to be considered for this scholarship because I have no financial help from my family. This means that I have to be able to pay for college on my own because of the fact that my father is no longer in my life, and my mom has my other siblings to take care of. My father is no longer in my life because he now lives in Mexico with his other family. I don’t have financial help from him because he has a wife and six other children. My mother would like to be able to help me, but she has two other children she’s taking care of by herself, and she has to prepare for my sister's graduation next year as well as mine this year. I plan to get a job after I graduate to help pay for the expenses of college, but since I am going online the expenses of college are going to be a lot less than if I were to go on campus, this is the main reason I am planning to go online, and to take a lot of the stress of being totally alone off myself because I will only be twenty minutes away from my family instead of an hour or two.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the Lindholm-Lebovitz Endowed Scholarship available for students, and me, at Wheaton College. By having the scholarship it has enabled me to attend Wheaton for all four years and subsequently opened so many doors for me. At Wheaton I have been able to hold multiple leadership positions such as being president of a themed house and being one of the student bankers on campus. Additionally I have had the opportunity to study abroad which has shaped me in ways I never thought would. The support that student get here at Wheaton is one like no other, so thank you for giving me the opportunity to thrive.
Coming into UNF in fall of 2017 I will be a transfer student. The choice to transfer wasn’t hard at all. I was born and raised in Jacksonville and miss home terribly. After not being happy at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida I knew I needed to move back home to Jacksonville and finish up my degree at the best school in Jacksonville, which happens to have a good exercise science program. I chose to transfer UNF’s Exercise Science program because I miss home, but also because I have heard great things about the program from former and current students.
According to The Balance, leadership is defined as “the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.” To inspire all 800 students in my class seems merely impossible, but establishing myself as a leader for those on my tennis team made this task seem rather feasible. Leading this girls’ high school team has enabled me to expand my leadership beyond just my high school team and to the entire community. The sport of tennis has not only shaped my life, but it has helped me shape the life of others.
