Being a member of the National Honor Society would allow me to continue my commitment to community service. I have developed my character and leadership skills in my previous community service projects. Some of my community service projects have included my silver award (Girl Scouts) that fixed the hoophouse by the elementary school, taught a local troop about recycling for the journey to my gold award, my bronze award which I babysat kids during Christmas, the community egg hunt, yearly flower planting at Cousin’s Park, the humane society, basketball and football concessions, working lugnuts, and parking for MSU football games. My favorite service project was my silver award for girl scouts. Before Jamie Lince, Faith Brown, and I did the silver award the hoophouse by the elementary school was very rundown.Order now
There were holes in the plastic, weeds in the beds, and the wood chips in the aisles were worn down. The hoophouse couldn’t be used. We wanted to fix that problem. First we applied for grants. I never knew how many steps or how much time this would take. It really taught me how to handle deadlines so things get turned in on time.
It also taught me that there are people that want to support you, and you just need to find them. The two grants that we received were a Lowes grant for fifteen-hundred dollars and a seed grant from Van Atta’s. The second step was to get people to help weed out the beds so we could plant the seeds we got from the grant. This took a few hours and a lot of people from the community showed up to help. The Lowes grant was used for the plastic that goes on the outside of the hoophouse and new wood chips for the aisles in the hoophouse. We had to have the help of Mr.
Montry who makes hoop house. .lways have to try your best and want to win. Sports also teach students teamwork skills. In order to succeed you need to have the ability work with others.A memory of being determined was during my last volleyball season.
It definitely did not go the way we all had hoped. During the regular season we only had two wins out of nine. When we had entered districts our first draw was Laingsburg. We hadn’t beat them in the four times we played them. Still none of us gave up; we just wanted to prove that we could win. That game we all went out there and believed that we could win.
We were so determined, and it payed off. That was the first time that Bath beat Laingsburg that season. Being a member of the National Honor Society would give me a opportunity to further develop my service and leadership skills. I know this will also help me shape my good character traits.
