Honor Society Accomplishments

Good Essays
Recently I was asked to join the Honor Society. At the beginning I was skeptical because I had no clue what it was or its use. But then I had my mom explain it to me. Honor Society will help me get into a good college and expand my knowledge. But to join this group, I had to think ‘Am I ready for this commitment? Am I going to be able to sustain the required GPA?’ After some thought, I decided, I am ready and able. The only thing standing in my way now, is a paper, this paper to be exact, on my activities, achievements, and positive traits.
I’ve been involved in many different kinds of activities from Tae Kwon Do (a Korean martial art) to cross-country and volleyball to guitar and choir. The only one of those activities I am currently involved in, however, is guitar. I had quit those other activities after I had lost interest in them. But guitar is in activity that has helped me in many different ways. It has pushed me to learn to decipher notes by ear, change the way songs are played to make them easier for me, and taught me the importance of practice. Guitar has helped me become more

I’m a very quick learner. If I struggle with getting a technique down the first few times, I quickly adapt to find a way to make it work for me (I do this quite often in my guitar class). I’m a very passionate person when I believe in something strongly enough, I will defend my opinion and try to get others to see the situation in the same light that I do. I’m also a very creative and artistic person; I love art, drawing, and music. I may not necessarily be the best at drawing, singing or playing my guitar, but I love to do it anyway because it makes me happy, especially when I can hear/see my improvement.
Being in Honor Society would be such an amazing opportunity. I believe that I deserve to be in this group. I am qualified and willing to work as hard as I have to. I think that Honor Society will be a great way to help better

    One thing that I am most looking forward to about college is being in an Honor’s program. I have always been one to challenge myself with advanced curriculum. I jump at every opportunity to take an advanced or Honors course at my school. I have been taking advanced classes since the seventh grade. I enjoy taking honors courses because they allow me to use my strengths and abilities at a higher and more advanced level.

    The Honors Program grabbed my attention because it’s for academically outstanding students and I am that student. Throughout my years of high school, I have taken Advanced Placement and Honors classes and have done very well in them. Being average is not okay for me, I want to do my best and reach my fullest potential in everything I do. I like being challenged mentally and that is exactly what the Honors Program will do for me. In the Honors Program I will be able to engage in social and cultural seminars that I know I will thoroughly enjoy. I have been a part of Diversity Club where different cultures come together to share ideas, exchange food, and get to know more about each others’ culture, so I have an idea of what seminars are like. I am a very outgoing person and I love to meet and interact with new people so through these seminars and projects I will be able to do that. I would also like to get a broader perspective on the world and throughout the many different projects, I will gain that. I read about the Honors Program and what will be done throughout the four years and I thought to myself that this is where I belong, I will fit right in. I want to accomplish many things that this program will allow me to and greatness is what I would like to aim for. The Honors Program at John Carroll University brings together one of the most gifted, diverse, and active groups of people not only on campus, but in the country and I would like to be a part of that, something…

    There are several goals I have set for myself in college; I aspire to make the dean's-list in all the years I attend college, I anticipate participating in a minimum of two organizations which can get me more absorbed in the community, and finally, I want to become involved with the student body, and attend as many school sponsored events as I can. In my junior year, when I heard I made the honor roll at my high school, I was overcome with a feeling of fulfillment. This was the first time I had made the honor roll and with this achievement was a feeling of pride for the work I put in, and for the way the work reflected in my grades. But, I stayed hungry and kept working to maintain this honor, and I finished on the honor role for the entirety…

    Upon receiving my letter for invitation to apply for the National Junior Honor Society came feelings of hard work pays off, and a bit of pride. I have worked very hard to maintain an all A average at Friendswood Junior High while taking some PAP classes as well as challenging myself with Latin. Having been told in a conference with a 5th grade teacher that I was not going to be an A student and that my parents and I needed to get used to that fact, sent me on a mission to be the best student I knew that I was capable of being, regardless of what any teacher thought.…

    The MHS Honor Society would benefit from my membership because I am involved in many activities, take challenging courses in school, and have been volunteering all of my life. I am involved in sports including cross country, track and field, and multiple intramurals. In cross country, there are no elected captains, but rather we are expected to step up and become leaders. I have stepped up and become a leader over the past couple of years. I have planned summer running, ran with my team to make them better, and also encouraged them all to do their best. I won the MVP and Jesse Citrowski Heart of the Tiger Award. I am also involved in other activities such as, knowledge bowl, which I was voted co-captain, Link Crew, Marshall ACTS, Tiger Activities…

    I strongly believe that I have the qualifications necessary to participate in the Honors College for my diligent work in all of my prior years of schooling. There has not been an instant in my educational career where I have not put in full effort towards my ongoing goal to gain the most amount of knowledge and to apply it to every possible aspect of my life. I have always been in honors courses and I have worked my way up to AP courses at every opportunity that I have been exposed to. I know that I possess the work ethic necessary to fully take advantage of the Honors College and I enjoy taking part in labs, teamwork activities, and after school clubs that better me as a student and a person. I know that I have the skills to be able to regulate my schedule through the various work experiences where I have had to understand the workload myself.…

    Personally, I believe that I not only embody the four pillars of the National Honor Society, but try to instill these character traits into others in order to better both them and the MATES community as a whole. As reflected by my grades and the privilege of applying to the MATES NHS chapter, scholarship is something that I value heavily, as I give 100% at everything I do, whether that be a game in gym or a hard test, and even though I may not be perfect I try my hardest to learn from my mistakes and improve both academically and personally. Furthermore I am both trustworthy and responsible, as I have never forgotten any homework throughout my career at MATES. I also enjoy helping others, which is why I volunteer at the library to be a reading…

    Another wonderful thing about honor classes is that we have also been allowed to work in groups; and by doing so, we will be better prepared for the workforce where such skills will be needed. I have also discovered several mentors through the honors program, all of who have helped me in a myriad of ways. Some continue to help me through my life, encouraging me whenever I am consumed with self doubt. Some professors even go as far as to advise me on what I need to accomplish in the future in order to obtain my goals. Others are there for me in more academic ways, and assist me whenever I am struggling with a concept. This is a delightful attribute to the honors program, as such characteristics are not always found throughout the campus. Lastly, although it is not yet my past nor my present another event that I believe will benefit me greatly is the Tennessee Collegiate Honors Conference. This event will provide to me experience in academic public speaking which is something I will need to be able to do in my future career. All of these factors have come together to make my time spent in the honors program beneficial to my future; moreover, my time here has overall been both gratifying and…

    For a girl who is use to achieving at everything she does, it was a great astonishment when I heard I didn’t make it into National Honors Society. I have never felt such like a failure before. When I first started high school as a freshman I have heard of National Honors Society because my brother was in it so I wanted to be in it as well. At my high school you can only be invited into it as a junior. To be invited into it you must have had a 3.5 GPA or higher.…
