Why I Chose To Join The National Honor Society
Danielle Yamson
February 18, 2013
NHS Application Essay
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.

There are times when I do fail at something, but I always figure out a way to fix that. I’m not that type of person that studies 24/7, more over you’d only catch me studying once in every while. But school is a big part of my life, and I’m grateful that my parents work hard everyday to send me a Catholic school. They’re one of my main inspirations as to why I work hard in school. One day I’d like to repay them for everything they did. I also like joining academic competitions because I love going to other places and representing my school. So far, I’ve only been in NHD and Speech Festival. For the next two years, I’m going to continue to try to go for Science Fair, Math Competition, and Young Writers because it’s also one of my goals to particiapate in every academic competition in high

    When I first received the letter inviting me to apply to the National Honor Society, my initial thoughts were of appreciation for the recognition of my hard work during this past academic year. To think of myself as a member of the NHS is an honor that could have a profound impact on my future. Over the past several years I have driven myself to become a much more motivated person. Along with achieving a GPA of 3.67, which is a personal best, I have also motivated myself to lose 35 pounds, which has helped me to have the self-confidence to take a more active leadership role in encouraging others to live a healthier lifestyle. To be considered a member of this prestigious organization is both an honor and a challenge to continue to improve both my body and my mind as I embark upon the journey of a higher education.…

    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.…

    It is a great honor to be nominated in an esteemed club of NBTHS, which idolizes the importance of academic excellence and values leadership, service and character. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society would not only mark an achievement in my high school career, but would also reflect the hard work and effort I have put into maintaining my grades and developing a respectable character. The NHS gives me a great opportunity to help the community and display my character to its full potential. As a student, academics has been one of my top priorities and maintaining a certain grade in each of my classes has been an objective that I have done to the best of my ability to complete. If I get selected into NHS that objective will be justified and I will acquire more opportunities to improve my community and share my knowledge with others in NHS.
