After doing some research on the National Honor Society, I learned that one must demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, leadership, character, and service in order to be considered for membership into the National Honor Society. Therefore, by showing that I possess each of these four qualities, I can contribute to the Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School community as a member of the National Honor Society.
As a candidate for membership into the National Honor Society, I already possess the quality of scholarship. I have received First Honors every quarter since 1st grade, and I earned an average of 95.5 or greater each year. I maintain my high average in school while working two days a week, attending cheerleading practice two days a week, and participating in other activities. Also, I have been taking all honors courses while in high school, and this year I have elected to take two AP courses. While an elementary student at Epiphany of Our Lord School, I participated in the Academic Challenge in 7th and 8th grade, and in the Mathletes Competition in 8th grade. Both of these competitions were held at St. Maria Goretti High School. Our team placed first in the Academic Challenge both years, and second in
As I mentioned previously, I am a part of the Parish Youth Committee at Epiphany Parish, whose main goal is to better serve the people of my parish. I also like to challenge myself to take on the most difficult classes and to do well in them, while staying well rounded through my involvement in other activities. I also participate in clubs such as the Ambassador"tms Club and CSC. During elementary school, I was elected to serve on the student council for multiple years. As a junior, I am now a member of the Varsity Mathletes team and look forward to hopefully another winning year. I will be a leader whenever I can, I will be active in the school community, and I will strive to make a difference each and every day. This past year, I tutored a 2nd grader who showed great improvement in the areas that I helped her with. I am a selfless person, always ready and willing to lend a hand when needed. Currently, I am in the process of creating and implementing this program. During my freshman and sophomore years at Goretti, I was a member of the JV Mathletes team, which placed first both years. I volunteered numerous times at Epiphany School. This was a very important leadership position in that it was our job to lead and guide the team, and we were in charge of leading the squad at games and competitions. With regard to service, I have always enjoyed giving of my time to help others.
