Introduction

Jordann Hartzheim NHS essay 10-7-09 I was thrilled after I had received my letter informing me that was eligible to be a part of the national honor society. Once I looked it over and saw that there was an essay part of the application, I thought it would be difficult to "brag" about myself. While I was thinking about how much I am an active member of the student body at LUHS, the task proved to be not too difficult. Character is one of the most important roles of being a good leader. I have many different qualities that attribute to my character, some including: I am consistently friendly; I am non-judgmental; and I have positive relationships with all of my teachers. ...read more.

Middle

Mama's on the other hand I work with customers and the dirty work of the kitchen, working there for two years have given me much experience when it comes to dealing with multiple situations. As far as school goes, I am a member of Spanish Club, Interact, Student Council, and ILI. Student council requires leadership expertise because we basically lead the school. Whether it is putting together dances, doing community service, assembling pep rallies, and much more we have to step up and become a leader of our school. ILI (Intercultural Leadership Initiative) is also very important for my role as a leader, not only because I have been in it for five years, but I also get the opportunity to teach younger students in middle school to become well prepared leaders in high school and also to teach them to mingle interculturally. ...read more.

Conclusion

It is important to give back to the community because you get something out of it, and I would appreciate other people that would take the time out of their busy lives to help improve one community. Being a member of the Interact club has given me a better perspective of community service as a whole; I have noticed many people take community service for granted. Without community service we wouldn't have many things such as Churches, food pantries, animal and homeless shelters, and much more. Without these organizations, our world would become a non-functioning environment. In conclusion, I believe I would be a good representative to the National Honors Society. I know this because I show all the qualities of a good leader: good character, service, and leadership skills. I would enjoy being a part of the NHS program very much and I would take it very seriously as a first priority. ...read more.
