National honor Society’s four pillars are essential elements to being a member of the society. Scholarship and leadership are the two pillars that I feel are most important. One should be a leader in the community and school without forgetting to be a good student and scholar. Service and character go well together because in order to provide services to students or members of the community, it is necessary to have good character.
Leadership is one of the most important traits to have not only in schools but outside of school also. In school, one can take up the position of being a leader by tutoring classmates or helping a peer understand the topic they were confused about. A feeling of accomplishment and happiness comes along with that. One can also be a leader by being a part of a club and helping the club officers and other members reach their club goals. For example, I am a Raiderette sergeant. I have to help lead the team by setting a good example and helping the team reach our goals. If I am accepted into the national honor Society, I will be able to gain more experience in being a leader and I will then be able to have the experience to help Raiderettes meet their goals and overcome any challenges we face. If accepted, I plan to take everything I learned from being a part of this society in apply to my life.
