Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, LA
I can vividly remember the numerous congratulatory comments and gestures because the school and community were quite proud when the news of my successful campaign for the position spread. I was the first person from Baker High School to win the officer position. I believe that being the first to campaign and the first to win made the victory especially sweeter for the members of Baker High School. It tremendously improved the school pride and morale. The faculty, staff, and students were proud to say that the District 8 Governor of the National Honorary Beta Club goes to their school. I am thankful that I contributed to the school spirit and enthusiasm of those around me.
Throughout my entire high school career, I have made it my sole goal to strive for academic excellence. I have taken all honors courses available, completed dual-enrollment courses, and received numerous academic recognitions. Those recognitions include (not limited to): student of the month, most outstanding math student, perfect attendance, dean’s list student (4.0GPA or higher), and honor roll (having all “A’s”) student; the list goes on. I have maintained a cumulative grade point average of a 4.4. My consistency in achievement has been the foundation for me being named Baker High School’s Valedictorian of the graduating class of 2013.
Along with academic and extracurricular engagements, I have accumulated leadership roles in both my school l and community. At my school, I am affectionately called “Mr. President” or “Governor”. My classmates and the faculty call me these things because I am the Senior Class President as well as Alpha Mu Tau Youth Fraternity, Inc. and the District Governor of the National Beta Club. The National Beta Club is built upon the pillars of community service, leadership, academic achievement, and character—the things that I stand for. It is the District Governor’s job to oversee the schools in his/her district (about 15 schools in our district) and to host the annual gathering of all the schools in the district called District Day.
