National Honor Society: The Significance Of Leadership

Good Essays
The Significance of Leadership Being a member in National Honor Society implies that you are a person of great character. One of the most important qualities that you can possess is leadership. Honesty is one of the key factors to being a good leader. You must be honest towards everyone, and in everything that you do. If a leader wasn't honest, then no one would trust them. And if they weren't trustworthy then who would want to follow their lead? Leadership also requires that you have an optimistic attitude about everything. You have to take control, and look for the best in every situation. No one wants to follow someone who is always in a bad mood, and always looks for something to complain about.

    The four pillars of the National Honors Society are leadership, scholarship, character, and service. To me, leadership means taking responsibility for yourself while also taking responsibility for others. Being put into a position where others look to you to make decisions and to advise them is also an example of leadership. There are small ways to represent leadership, such as taking control of a group project, as well as large ways like being the president of a club. Scholarship means learning to the best of one's abilities and putting school before anything else. This includes staying up late if necessary to finish homework, and studying for every test so a good grade is guaranteed. Character means overall being a good person: making good choices, staying true to one’s morals, and treating others with respect. Finally, service means…

    When I had first been accepted into the National Honor Society, I never fathomed that it would change me as much as it did. As a Junior in high school I was excited to be apart of such a prestige group, but I didn’t realize how much of an impact that some of our group’s volunteer opportunities would have on me. In my Junior Year I had helped out with the Red Cross Blood Drive at Pillager High School. Though my volunteer experiences in my Junior Year were memorable to me, the volunteering that I was apart of my Senior Year ended up being the most meaningful to me.…

    First of all, it is a great honor to even be nominated for NHS. When I got the letter saying I was nominated, I felt a little relieved. I felt relieve because this is it. This is why I’ve worked so hard in school; this is why I spend countless hours doing homework. I realized that all of my hard work is finally paying off. I could help the NHS by dedicating my own time to participate in fundraisers, encouraging other students to do their best on their schoolwork, and try their best in everything that they do.…

    Being invited to join the National Honor Society is an honor itself. Being inducted into the NHS? Now that’s a whole different story. Since my freshman year, I have dreamed of joining the NHS. I have always envied the students who walked around every Thursday wearing the uniform. Since then, I have pushed myself to try harder in school. Now that I have the chance to be one of them, it’s something that I wont let slip. I want to be a part of the NHS because it would look great on a college application. It is one of the things I could prove to everybody that I am capable of achieving. Sometimes, I doubt myself so this is something that I can assure myself that I can achieve great things on my own. I know I’m not the perfect student, but I can prove that I am NHS worthy.…

    A person of character is, someone to admire, who sets a good example, who knows the difference between right and wrong. To me no one is good or bad. This is a fact that should be kept in mind when we try to judge a person's overall character. We are all different and complex. I think I show most of the elements a person of good character should show. Not only have I been looked up to and admired, but I try to keep as active as possible (a quality younger students may look up to). Joining different sports, excelling in academics, and joining other extracurricular activities, gives me this opportunity and also demonstrates my reliability. Like a person with a good character I like to help anyone that is in need of a little guidance. I've always been known to make people laugh or feel better when they are down, which seems to me like a person with a great character, and want to better life's sometimes harsh obstacles.…
