I want to become a Bank of America student leader I want to be a good leader but also a true leader, which is a leader that leads by example. In able to help my community and to encourage fellow students like myself, I have to set the foundation and
Throughout my two years in high school as well as middle school, I believe I have shown a considerable amount of this ability in myself. For the past five years, I have been a representative in the Fayette Student Council. This year alone, I was chosen to attend State Student Council as well as the Fulton Leadership Workshop in June of 2016 to represent Fayette, Missouri. These events are accompanied by many ideas of how even something little, such as taking charge and leading, can make such a big difference. I was chosen as alternate for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) for the Northeast District. In a more hometown sense, I was recognized for being completely in charge of decorations, thank you notes, and preparation in our Pink Out event which was held in January of 2016. Following these actions, I was chosen to promote Fayette High School and hand the check of all funds made from Pink Out directly to Dale and Lisa Lang. I have been elected by my peers and educators to uphold the position of Sophomore Class President. Through this position, I connect my classmates concerns to my teachers to make high school an overall better experience for everyone. I am an active member of FHS Junior Optimist Club where I have volunteered as a cheerleading coach and coordinated numerous fundraising events for our communities youth. I believe these leadership actions, as well as others, prove that
I applied to be a part of the freshman mentoring program and was accepted in both my junior and senior year; earning a spot on the mentor executive board my senior year. This program assists incoming freshman with the transition into the high school. Being the first person the freshman came into contact with, I knew I had to put myself in a leadership role and be a friend and mentor to these students, not just on the first few days of school, but throughout their first year. I also became involved with Class representatives and the football team. I was never a captain or a class officer, but this was not going to stop me from being a leader. As a class rep, I was able to be a voice for my class and help plan out our year. On and off the football
Tiffany Martin Student leadership is an essential part of a student’s collegiate career. Two student leaders,Tiffany Martin and Victoria Huckabee, are seniors looking back on their time and shed light on what they have learned during their time in their leadership positions. Soon after graduation, Strategic Communication student Tiffany Martin has
As a college freshman at Georgia State University, I was most influenced to take part of the Panther L.E.A.P. (Leadership, Engagement, Achievement, and Pride) Program. The Panther L.E.A.P. Program is a residential leadership program at Georgia State University for students considering working in the residential halls on the school campus. The program was to focus on “Social Change Model for Leadership Development.” As a first-time college student, I completed the Panther L.E.A.P. Program in my second semester of attending Georgia State University, and it has been my all-time favorite program thus far at the college. The program was formed to teach students at Georgia State University an updated version of the social change model. The L.E.A.P. Program was divided into different learning modules, and it was a three-month training session for the college students. Each student who attended the program had to complete the different session dates throughout the program time. With that being, I so much fun being part of the Panther L.E.A.P. Program because we did community service work, attended
Leadership is one of the most defining qualities of a person's character. The ability for someone to balance their own personal beliefs in accordance with that of others, and be able to use the power others have entrusted in them for the purpose of bettering the whole is a true testament to one’s integrity. One area in which this holds a significant precedence is in student-led extracurricular activities: opportunities where students are put in positions of authority and serve as mediators between the student and administrative body. As a junior in high school, I've been given the privilege to serve in positions where these factors are of utmost importance. Since freshman year I’ve served as a leading member of AWARE (African Americans Working to Achieve Relevance and Excellence). We consider ourselves to be more than just a school minority club; we strive to educate ourselves as well as students of different backgrounds of the minority status in education, politics, and society as a whole. The main purpose of AWARE is to help members better both themselves and others and to have a positive impact both in the school
A major leadership experience that I had at my high school is in our student government: REBAR, an acronym for Reinforcing the Student Body of Academy of the Redwoods. Our primary role in the community is facilitating school events, most notably the new student orientation. At the beginning of every year, REBAR members including myself apply leadership skills to a group of new students to teach them about our school and show them around our campus. This opportunity leaves a lasting impact on all students at my high school, Academy of the Redwoods. This is largely because REBAR is responsible for creating the first impression that new students get of our school. This responsibility lasts beyond orientation day. Since we have familiarized ourselves
The Sullivan Leadership Program matches everything I worked toward in high school and hope to continue with in college. I have always set myself apart as a leader. As a child, my teachers would encourage me to lead the class after they saw my natural tendencies. By fifth grade I was the president of my elementary school, a position I still hold dear to my heart. My leadership style has always been by example. I adamantly follow rules and take on responsibilities to distinguish myself as a leader. My peers are able to look to me as an example.
I have many plans for my coming two years at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I study History and Secondary Education, and have cultivated many constructive outlets in my college career thus far. I’ve had the opportunity to work some campus jobs and actively participate in many student organizations. I definitely plan on continuing this trend, but I believe that the El Pomar Student Leadership Experience can enhance my leadership prowess to a extended degree, and help me perform better within my campus leadership positions. It can also assist me with
Last year, when I joined the Norcross Student Leadership Team Executive Board, I noticed how we were only leaving an impact to students who were already involved in leadership programs. However, I wanted to make a difference in the lives of students who were unaware of their own potential. In order to reach this goal, I took a special interest in advertisement portion while planning the Winter Recharge, a leadership summit in which motivational speakers came to speak to students at my high school.As a team we decided our goal was to have 300 students attend our summit. In order to make this a reality, I attended a teacher work holiday to speak to the faculty to ask for their assistance. In addition to asking help from the faculty, I created
I would consider myself very different from my peers. I have spent most of my high school career holding many leadership positions that would influence those on Redwood’s campus to do bigger and better things beyond themselves. I have been in the student government for all four years of high school holding the positions of: Freshmen Vice President, Athletics Commissioner, Rally Commissioner, and ASB Secretary. By my junior year, I had become noted as a leader on campus and was selected to be the student representative for the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports team, School Site council, and Parent Teacher Student Association. I speak on behalf of the students for many things, so it’s important to connect with everyone on campus, which
Leadership is one aspect of myself that I would like to further explore. I am a good leader when I am in a familiar surrounding and with familiar people and through this institute I am hoping that I can expand my skills and knowledge in leadership. The mentors I encounter in my life are the definition of what a leader should be like. Because of them, my leadership styles are formed. Since I am limited to just seeing the role of leaders in my high school and my community, this program would be a great way for me to see other leadership styles in different settings. I believe this institute will be very valuable as I approach my senior year and my future endeavours. Now that I will be a senior, I will be the “leaders” in our school. Underclassmen
Through the organizations: Yale Young Global Scholars, Florida American Legion Boy's State, Youth Leadership Lake Wales, and Polk County’s “Uthmpact”, I have been blessed enough to take leadership courses from a city, county, state, and international standpoint. These skills I have obtained from these programs have been extremely effective in the school improvement committees I am involved with around campus:specifically, the principals council. This organization is composed of students elected from each homeroom class, and its job is to work hand in hand with the principal to improve the culture, and climate of the campus by promoting the school’s maxim of “You are your brother’s keeper”. While this may sound easy on paper, it is important to realize that this club possesses a plethora of different socioeconomic, ideological,and educational backgrounds which can create tensions during the heat of a discussion. However, I wouldn't expect anything else, because each student is passionate about their viewpoints, and that is what we need to improve the school, rather than a group of lukewarm students. As a member for the last four years, what I try to do is use my speaking skills to present viewpoints in a more articulate fashion, that allows one’s stance to be explained without the chance of others finding offense in what may have been said. This technique has been extremely effective, and I am proud to say that I have played a part in laying the seeds of greatness within my
From a very young age, I always knew that I was a leader. I remember constantly volunteering to be a leader for activities in the classroom, but the more I grow up and mature, the more I crave the need to flourish and nurture my leadership skills to enhance the way I will aid my school and community in the future. When I heard about the Leadership Program, I knew it would be a great occasion for me to cultivate my leadership abilities.
I will look forward to taking an influential role among my peers, teachers, and administrators at the school. My ultimate goal is not worrying about what I am leading but I how I am leading based on God’s principles. I will model my good values and ethics and hopefully help other towards to possible social change. I believe being an effective leader can help achieve great results to the University with roles in student government president, team captain, etc. I will model positive leadership, which can inspire and organize others to achieve an assignment or to help others bring out their creativity, vision, and skills to benefit themselves and others. I would like to empower another student to want essential leadership roles. I would like everyone to communicate, keep an open-minded atmosphere and positive energy to fulfill our purpose with the specific task. Universities administrators and teachers should be held accountable and keep the school organizations and classes going. I would look to them to model the school’s vision and values. I will model my leadership traits with my classmate by stepping up and taking charge when needed. Staying open-minded and hearing everyone’s ideas on a subject matter and make, everyone feels accepted. Everyone can bring something good to the table. Stay on task to set the example of keeping everyone else on task.
