Throughout my school years, I have always tried to be a positive role model for younger students as well as my peers. This year I decided that the best way to serve my school was to participate in our school’s Student Leadership Council. It has proven to be a fantastic decision for me. I succeeded in getting the most votes out of all of the candidates and have had a great experience taking a leadership role in my school. I feel like I have become a much better leader and role model because of Student Leadership Council. I have been really fortunate to be exposed to the Jeter’s Leaders program, since they come to our school to mentor us as SLC members. It has been an incredible experience, and I would really love to continue with it. As an eighth grader at Saint Augustine, we are required to mentor our younger students. I
I have a passion to change people’s lives. Therefore I am deeply honored to have been chosen out of a few hundred to have the opportunity to be part of the National Junior Honor Society. This experience would teach me much more about being a leader. I feel I would be an important asset to your team, and I hope you will consider having
I am honored to be in ASB this year and enjoy making a difference in the school and being a leader, and I’m looking forward to making a bigger difference next year at the school. I have learned numerous tips on how to be a leader by writing essays and showing what we learned in different committees in ASB and in our larger world. Throughout my year in ASB I learned how to be a better leader, and because of that I used these skills to make the school a better place to be in and a more amusing and exciting place to go to school.
So far, I have altered how meetings are conducted from last year so that the student administration has more control of communicating ideas to the members. Later in the year, I plan to incorporate additional volunteer opportunities and I want to have more group conversations with the members to hear their ideas and try to merge those ideas into positive changes that can be made. This leadership opportunity is starkly different from that of coordinating a 5k. Being the president of NHS has given me additional exposure to public speaking skills, decision making skills, proper ways to conduct meetings, and ways to present myself professionally. Despite their differences, these leadership opportunities have helped me advance myself in my journey to accomplish my goals. The skills I gained and refined from these opportunities will undoubtedly assist me when trying to procure grants, build connections, and become a research team leader.
I am intimately familiar with the workings of the club, as I have been involved in a leadership role from nearly the first day. While the rest of my fellow officers are seniors and will graduate this June, I hope to carry on in a leadership role and ensure the club we have worked so hard to establish will continue to flourish. Through my experiences this year, I know specifically which aspects of the club are running smoothly and which need more work; I know which of our efforts were successful, and which missed the mark. I hope to bring my knowledge to the NHS leadership team in my senior year so that the State High chapter will have a bright and stable future. Furthermore, I possess the qualities necessary to be a strong leader. In addition to my organizational abilities, I can communicate effectively and appropriately with both my peers and my teachers. I am dedicated to my work, and independently motivated to achieve success. I am an excellent team player, having had significant practice this year both leading a team as an officer and working within a team and delegating tasks as head of the Bunny Hop 5k advertising committee. Given the opportunity, I would enthusiastically utilize and continue to develop all of these skills as president of the State High
As a leader, I try to inspire and have an influence on people. I see leadership as a responsibility to be a good role model for others. Therefore, from the people I have interacted with, I make sure no one is afraid to say or give an opinion on something and I’m there to listen. For example, in National Honor Society we learn the principles which are scholarship, service, character and most importantly, leadership. As the Vice President of National Honor Society, I have hope for success in each member. This year the president and I have teamed up to create new opportunities for all of the members of National Honor Society to contribute to our community. Not only do they lend a hand, but they are also willing to come up with new ideas to help,
I came to Tarleton as a scared freshman who barely knew anyone on campus. The first person that I got to connect with was my Residential Leader. She let me know that no matter what was going on she would always be there for me as a friend and a mentor. When I first came here I decided I wouldn’t try to be an RL that I would just try to be a TTM. Now that I have this awesome relationship with my RL I want to become that for someone else. She was there for me when I was laughing and she was there for me when I was crying. She is one of the reasons that I didn’t drop out as a freshman.
Throughout my high school years, I gave myself many opportunities and challenges to demonstrate my worth as a leader. Of all these positions, the one I take pride in the most would be taking the lead role of directing a non-profit ACT organization. Together with my classmate, we had founded the organization to which I took charge of after he left to attend college. During my role as president of the ACT organization, my responsibilities included tutoring, finding teachers, organizing sign ups, as well as procuring space to hold classes.
This summer I won a scholarship from Delta Airlines for being a leader in my community. While I was there I was awarded squadron leader and was given the job of watching 10 other individual perform and succeed at the tasks and missions we had to complete every day. Also during my ninth and tenth grade year I was awarded MVP for my volleyball team because of the positivity and leadership I brought on the court. And lastly I was the president of my youth group and was asked to organize and lead special events. These are just a few of the was I have shown leadership, and I hope I am able to further this role in
Within the collage I have had the opportunity to represent the school as Junior School Captain and Class leader. I have also been lucky enough to be involved in the Student Ambassador and Peer Support program, working closely with many other leaders within the school. The most relevant position I have held is Gwynton house leader this year. I have learnt so much from this position by assisting and learning from our current leaders Josh and Laura and also by taking charge in some situations and leading the group
These men and women led the way to do what they have done, whether showing their leadership in the business world, the political landscape, or the high school classroom. I know that I have been a leader for my peers, just as they have been for me. When preparing for a presentation for the Delaware State Student Council, I found a quote by Tom Peters, a writer on business management principles, which really resonated with me. “Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders”. I have, since then, done what the quote says, and have built leaders in my peers and my friends. Leadership will continue to be a focal point of my character as a member of the Caesar Rodney National Honor Society, to better not just the people around me, but myself as
That really meant a lot to me, so after I was elected I wanted to make sure I did everything right. One of my first challenges was actually deciding whether or not to go to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Our FFA goes on that trip every other year. I went to the last National Convention my freshman year just for fun, but this year I felt that I had a duty to go along and be a leader for our chapter by being involved. The problem is, last year I was on the varsity volleyball team. National Convention was at the same time that regional volleyball games were starting. I didn’t know what to choose – the volleyball team that I loved and had been committed to for three months already, or the organization that chose me to be their leader? I really didn’t know what to do. I finally chose to go with the FFA to Indianapolis. It would give me a chance to practice my leadership skills and get to know our FFA chapter better. I still felt like I was letting my team and coach down, but I felt more committed to FFA.
I look forward to improving my fundraising, I have not hit my goal within the last two years, but contributed to the whole day. This past weekend DM got to my emotions and made me want to be part of this
Sometimes in the busyness of life many forget the importance of giving back to the community and to others. I’m so grateful that my sorority gave me the opportunity to work with incredible organizations and opened the door to independent chances for me to help others. Always being one who loved doing things for others more so than herself, I cant express how thankful I am that I found a way to continue to in
I was awarded the Student Service Leadership Award, during the baccalaureate ceremony preceding my graduation at Xavier University of Louisiana. This honor is important to me because it solidifies that while attending the university I was able to help make a positive difference on campus and the surrounding community. While I have gained other honors, this is the most important because it is a result of practicing my life goal of serving the underserved. I believe that it is up to every person to leave an
