Scholarship, leadership, character and service are all characteristics found in a National Honor Society member. I believe that I possess all of these characteristics and should be given the honor of becoming a NHS member.

the first characteristic scholarship, is best defined as the academic quality of a particular student. All National Honor Society members are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA. I have worked hard to maintain a 3.5 GPA, and I have received a card every semester since I started at Coral Academy six years ago.

The next characteristic is leadership. Leadership is helping, guiding or leading others to reach a goal. I'm a leader not only in school but outside of school as well. Outside of school I am the elected captain of my swim team, I am a Leader in Training (LIT) through my church's awana program. In school, I lead by example, I get good grades not only in academics but in citizenship as well, and I was a member of National Junior Honor Society last year.

The third characteristic is character; It is defined as the qualities that form the individual nature of a person. I am a very honest, reliable, respectful, and responsible person. I'm very friendly, courteous, cooperative, and I rarely break the rules.

The final characteristic is service. Service is any contributions made to a community without expecting anything in return. I provide many different services to my community. I have provided services in accordance with my church through programs like vacation bible school and awanas. I also volunteer my time at the SPCA of Northern Nevada, and I help out with other miscellaneous community activities i.e., expedition man.

Thank you, for your time and consideration. And I hope you find me worthy of receiving the honor of becoming a National Honor Society member.
