My best experience in high school happened my junior year when I made
the National Honor Society. The National Honor Society selects upperclassmen in
schools throughout the nation based on scholarship, leadership, service and
character. This experience really outlined all of my hard work and
participation throughout my years of high school. With a 3.5 GPA and volunteer
work throughout the school, I was lucky enough to be one of the few selected from
around 300 students. Being selected to join the National Honor Society makes me
feel as though my hard work is appreciated and not overlooked. I was acknowledged
at a ceremony to celebrate my achievements. I celebrated alongside my peers who
were also selected into the National Honor Society, many whom I have had
classes with since the beginning of middle school. The ceremony included
handing out certificates individually while congratulating each one of us.
After, we all took many pictures and celebrated further with cake. Being a part
of the National Honor Society is a great memory I will have of high school, and
I have many pictures to cherish those memories forever!
