National honor Society’s four pillars are essential elements to being a member of the society

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.
Along with leadership comes the next pillar: scholarship. This pillar is essential because one can be an outstanding leader but have bad grades. If someone is capable of having all the great leadership traits while having good grades and being a scholar, they are perfect for joining NHS. I always try to make time for everything. Including doing homework and studying, while also doing volunteer work and helping friends. It’s difficult to do, but I try my best to make time to accomplish things I need to get done. If I’m selected to join this society, I will not forget about my schoolwork. Instead, it would motivate me to do better in my classes in order to keep my GPA in the right place so I would be able to continue participating in NHS.
Then comes the service pillar. I am aware that national honor Society is a service organization. I’m sure there will be many activities that will help not only our school but also members of the community and others who are in need of help. I feel that serving others should be done with a kind heart and not expecting anything in return. One should provide services to those in need because it is the right thing to do. In the past, I have helped members of my church raise money to give to kids who don’t get to have a thanksgiving meal or even something as simple as a Christmas present. The joy on their faces when you give it to them is just priceless. If I am inducted into NHS I will be happy to get the opportunity to participate in other events and activities that help people in need. This would help me give back to the community and our school and also remind me to be grateful for what I have.
The last pillar, character, is something we work on every day to try to improve. Character is not just what we show to others, but whom we are when no one is around. If one has an excellent character, then it is likely that one also has the other three pillars as well. Having good character helps in becoming a great leader without forgetting to be a scholar. And in order to provide services to others, having good character is a must. To me a good character includes being responsible, trustworthy, respectful, fair, and caring. If I were chosen to be part of the NHS, I would definitely try to improve my character in all those areas.
I strongly believe that all four pillars; leadership, scholarship, service, and character, or crucial not only for national honor Society but also for life. If I were to join in NHS, I would be given the opportunity to improve in all these areas and learn from others who are doing the same. I would be able to get to know students that I’ve never seen or talked to before. I would get time to spend helping others which is truly gratifying. Joining NHS would be an honor and would help me become a better student, classmate, and friend.
