National Honor Society

Good Essays
National Honor Society It is a great honor and privilege to be nominated for the National Honor Society. This has been one of my goals since being a part of the National Junior Honor Society in middle school. The National Honor Society is said to be looking for student’s service, character, leadership, and someone who has made a difference. I feel as if I fit all of these requirements. I serve the community through many different ways. I volunteer to help with things going on around the community, for example, I have signed up to help with registration for a race that was going on at a local gym. I have also contributed in helping kids and adults with special needs. I helped at Farm, teaching these people how to ride horses and communicate with others. Riding horses helped them learn how to use their body more efficiently. I feel as all of us that had the chance to contribute in helping them changed these adults and kids lives. They also changed ours on how we look at people. At the farm I also have taught at horse camp with the 8 and under kids. Being a counselor isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. You really have to teach the kids good communication with others around them and also some rules and morals that they will hopefully carry on in life. Like, forgiving each other, and not to hold grudges against one another. I feel that character is a large part of life. Luckily, I have two parents that have taught me my morals. Unfortunately, not everyone has had these instilled in their lives. Whenever I get a chance I make sure to help and show other people mine. When my friends are mean to others in school I tell them to treat others how you would like to be treated. As a student of High School I have noticed that there is a lot of bullying, whether by race, religion, ability to learn, or what “group” you are part of. I think this all needs to stop, even though some people may think it’s impossible to stop bullying from happening, I think it is possible. I believe if people weren’t so caught up in what other’s thought of them and instead of what they thought of themselves bullying would end. If people find their respect and actually have character in what they do whether it’s going to a restaurant, during a sports game, or at school the world would be a better place. I feel as if I have a good character but I would still like to improve it. I have learned a lot about my character through my freshman year of lacrosse . Our coach taught us so much about being a good person not only on the outside but also on the inside. Being a leader is a lot more than just having the name of captain, owner, or coach, it means being able to stand up and encourage others and lead them in the right direction. Even if you are not called a “captain” on your sports team doesn’t mean you aren’t a leader. I also believe that “captains” or “leaders” that are negative about everything aren’t really leaders. I was recognized for Student of the Month in March of 2012. I was picked by the art department but not because I was good at art, it was because I had a good attitude and was hardworking. I also encouraged others to do their best. Another part of working as a counselor at Farm taught me how to be a leader. I had always just followed what others did until I started doing this. I had to step out of my shell and teach the little kids I was assigned to, there was no one really telling me what to do. This experience is what made me most of what I am today, able to step out of my shell and lead people. During the 2012-2013 season of soccer at High I was nominated captain which was very nerve wracking for me. Luckily I was able to stand up and actually be a leader. When my coach would come up and ask me a question about what she should do about one of the players, I would tell her what I truthfully thought, not just what she or that player wanted to hear. Another aspect of me is me academically; I am very hardworking and love to be put to a challenge. I make lots of goals for myself and put a lot more pressure on myself than what my parents put on me. I have had goals to be part of the NHS, get straight A’s, stay above a 4.0 GPA, get a high class rank, and get into a good college. I have been able to accomplish lots of these goals. I have received Principal’s Honor Roll every marking period, except for 1st marking period of my freshman year, where I had one B. I currently have a 4.38 weighted GPA, and a 3.95 unweighted GPA. I am also currently #8 in my graduating class, my goal is to get up to either #1-5. Lots of people are saying that it’s impossible because of the students that are in those numbers currently, but I am determined to get above them. I feel like I have definitely made a difference in lots of people’s lives; my family, teammates, classmates, strangers, and friends. Whenever someone needs help with something, especially in school I am willing to help them understand by teaching them. This not only helps them but helps me learn the subject more by being able to explain it to them. During 4-H I taught strangers about my animals that they didn’t have the opportunity to learn about or have. Thank you for considering me for this recognition of the National Honor Society.
