under the light that illuminates the future candidates have the charge to

members of the National Honor Society and welcome back all returning ones
since I’m one year older than all these newbies I’m supposed to be wise and
share my advice with you however the truth is I’m still figuring it out too
but here’s what I have so far you can study as hard as you want
get the best grades and have perfect SAT scores but at the end of the day if
that’s all life’s about and it’s it over after any school because the reality is
that it’s a totally different world in college and yet how is that now I’m not
saying to never study or do any homework but just be the best version of yourself
academically think it can be I never give up
vibrating excel at a school because chances are that’s what you’re going to
end up studying in college in five years from now you’ll remember that you got a
105 or a 65 on the math test while you go remember is when your child actually
says came out perfect an AP bio and you discovered that that’s what you want to
do with the rest of your life think about it was the please the sample
different subjects and taste those classes that interest you find what
makes you happy until questioning that’s that scholarship is about discovering
your passion academically and working hard on it and scholarship just doesn’t
apply to Lincoln High School but it’s about continuing to
it’s about gaining experience in your fields whether you’re a journalist or an
engineer I guess what I’m trying to say is fine when you love and work hard I
continue to learn and challenge yourself in school and in life
scholarship just doesn’t mean sitting in a classroom go to Madrid to study
Spanish volunteer at a hospital write a book or do whatever it is that you want
to do so good luck to all members whether new or those graduating with me
and you if you’ll use anything that I said tonight and you have been self this
pillar of scholarship so hope you all find what you’re passionate about I mean
never and you said it
I invite Olivia from the juniors and seniors salutatorian Malthus asked us to
speak about leaders leadership should exert a wholesome influence on the
school in taking initiative in the classroom and in school activities the
real leader strives to Train and eat others to reach their common goals of
successes the price of leadership is to sacrifice the willingness to yield one’s
personal interests with the interests of others a leader to have self-confidence
and will go forward with others hesitate no matter what power and resources may
exist in a school community or nation their ineffectual without the guidance
of a wise leader leadership is always needed thus to leave is a meaningful and
social system substances charge to each of our members leadership is equality that everyone
should strive to attain from the first step we took into high school I believe
that we were all trained to be the best leaders that we could be with countless
opportunities presented to us we were told to take the initiative and be the
leader instead of the former high school can be a changing experience in many
different respects the most importantly helped to transform us all into leaders
the leader of us respects their peers in order to be respected themselves they
must have the courage to take action in the face of adversity
passion is necessary in order to inspire those whom they leave to follow in their
footsteps they must also have the humility to accept when they’re wrong
and to recognize the value of each and every one of their peers these are the
characteristics of a leader humility courage passion and above all
perspective qualities taught to us throughout our lives and students what
this will truly is done however is teach us to use these key traits in a manner
which is beneficial not only to us but to our peers our community as the
shining examples of academics and character in today’s and as the role
models to men it is now our duty to pass on the knowledge of leadership to those
here with us today I’m extremely proud of my peers Thank You matinee though Dominika bed
Southard and as Bella Romano will come to continue with service my office is service service can be
established in the routine of the day’s work were many opportunities arise to
help others both at school and in the community a willingness to work for the
benefit of those in need without monetary compensation or public
recognition is the quality we seek in our membership and promote for the
entire student body America minutes of volunteering their time and talent to
the creation around the course of my life I’ve held
with great conviction that getting back to those community is terrible
I’ve always believed that there are a few things more noble to community
service as this expression of gratitude not only supports our community but also
fosters the development of solidarity communicate within our society that is
why I’m honored to accept this speech to the Pacific inductees on the true value
of service National Honor Society defines his pillar as the willingness to
work but that compensation of any kind though I believe was definitional to
credos I find that a deeper understanding of his rage if we read
between the lines it is true that no monetary compensation is received
through one service to the community however a far more valuable payment is
nonetheless received by the volunteer that being the priceless award of
knowing you’ve truly made a difference in someone’s life
as pinklet president and chairperson the southeast in town with the Advisory
Committee CalFire achievement impact of one small
effort to get back can be likewise as leaders of the community i’m confident
you’ve come to learn just how powerful your dedication to service truly is as
you witness the smiling faces or hear a note of gratitude and the ones you’ve
helped you understand the genuine change you can make in the lives of those
around you as servers of the community you’ve been able to hone your leadership
skills and teach those around you would be guided along the way as you continue
through high school you’ll be able to inspire your peers to take action just
as you have your entire levels by entering the clonally we summon the
courage to engage in develop art to serve today marks the day that we wonder
your devotion to spreading positivity throughout our community today we’re
today that we celebrate your desire to contribute to a better world a world you
yourself Oster I commend you for your unwavering dedication to life of service
a life defined by our compassion motivation we will finish the character as a dress
my Bridget use and cleanse me characters the force within the individual that
distension each person for mothers it creates for each of us our individuality
our business it is that without much there’s octave others it is this horse
character that guides on through life and what’s developed was sadly within
the character is achieved and not received the product stood thought act
the daily striving to make the right tools the problem of character we must
be in reality but we wish to appear to others need to be rather than to see I
demonstrated such qualities as respect responsibility to trustworthiness
awareness caring and citizenship we may by example that we value character as Oxford Dictionary defines it
characters the mental and moral qualities distinct into an individual by
this definition our character defines much of who we are what we think and how
we act character is a part of scholarship leadership and service
there’s no standardized test community service hours look we’re talking define
a person’s character the evidence of good moral character is in the decisions
you make every day not just how you act in front of a teacher or a parent but
the decisions you make when you’re on your own for while being honest
honorable when others are watching it’s important being true to yourself is key
the end of the day these individual interactions are paramount to what you
are think of these scenarios you just witnessed someone chocolate they do you
tell the store manager your teacher walked out of the room and some kids
actually start sharing answers do you join in your at lunch when you see so
many people do you recommend you with you you’re probably was taking you’re at
your head yes behind me thinking of course I would act but it until your
Facebook these moral dilemmas people know how they will react this is a test
of character the choices you make today tomorrow and in the future will be
comprised together by others to make a judgment of your character so make the
right choices call your gut can be a leader my last piece of advice is to
take advantage of your final moments here I have students sitting directly
behind me are getting ready for college but countdown just around four months
and the other half of preparing schools missus all approaching quickly
but you still have time Martin Luther King jr. had once said the function of
education is teach one to think intensively and to think critically
intelligence class character that is the goal of a true education so take the
rest of your time here at egg to base to focus on becoming a better version of
yourself which we achieve the true education because grades aren’t
everything if you’re unhappy with who you are what was once far in the future
is not becoming reality when we’re ready to pin exploring life on our own but we
did get here without them I would like to thank our parents and relatives or
teachers friends I brought out so you helped us develop our character but

week’s symposium the building is of us and the fact that we have these
young men and women sitting here for a period
it’s no small feat because they’re the business of the pizza

celebrating a win against something over well rehearse a musical or even a year’s
worth of learning AP curriculum but recognizing that this is the lifetime
