Notre Dame High School National Honor Society, It seems like it was just yesterday that I was looking out over the National Honor Society Chapter at Notre Dame conducting one of our monthly meetings. As I examined the students in our chapter, I saw outstanding leaders, students, and hard-working individuals. These were the same qualities that someone must have seen in me to accept my application to the Society. And now, I am seeing these qualities every day in Jack Essner. I knew Jack was a man of good character soon after my first interactions with him.
By the end of the day I had been confronted by a dozen kids, obviously Mrs. Mckannan had made a few announcements. It wasn’t until that evening when I received a very straightforward message about my decision to run for Senior Class President. All throughout high school the same kid had won everything. He was Class President every year and had at least 6 clubs under his belt. Not to mention his stellar grades in every class with his best subject, being a teacher’s pet.
His parents own a restaurant so they work from five to six in the morning till twelve at night, so he had no choice but to learn and be independent on his own. Although he knows that he is slow in school, he still challenged himself and takes honors and AP classes with me. I would help and assist him as much as I could so that he doesn’t fall behind. He did fine his freshman year of high school, but sophomore year was when things went downhill. His parents left for Vietnam for 3 months, and he was really on his own
It wasn’t until he moved to the United States that he was introduced to basketball. Charles was born to a poor family in Leeds, Alabama. He and his two brothers were raised by his mother and grandmother. He grew up playing basketball with his brothers. Patrick had great success in his senior year of high school because he was already almost 7 feet tall.
He was tall, quick, and had a high basketball I.Q. He lead his team of Palo Alto High School to a very successful season, 32 and 1. Also winning their division championship. Lin was categorized in the first-team allstate, he also won the Northern California Division two player of the year. After highschool, he sent out mixtapes of highlights to colleges, but they weren't seriously looking at him for sports.
His mother was very upset that he did not get his degree. He promised her that he would return to school over the next two summers and finish school. He eventually received his degree in Geography. Michael Jordan went on to be one of greatest basketball players in history. He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls leading them to six NBA Championships, five-time league MVP, ten-time league scoring champion and the number one per-game scorer in NBA history.
I could finally be grandma it was great. But it was not quite over yet there where some issues that needed to be worked out like Julia’s drug use and her getting become drug free. Visitations where setup so she would see him at my house, the parties involved agreed that visitation remain under my supervision over the next few months to insure TeiJay safety. TeiJay was starting to show improved in his behavior and his grades in school over the last months of school improved tremendously I could see a great improvement as could everyone else. On June 19, 2012 it was determined that TeiJay live with his dad and mom would see him on weekends from Friday at six o’clock pm to six o’clock pm and he was not to spend the night anywhere but grandma’s house because of mom’s bad discussion making and the people she exposed him to.
The class of 2018 is amazing, and we need to show the upperclassmen what we are made of. I would also like to get our class more involved in the fund raising process, because how much money we earn determines how amazing our junior prom will be. We can be the start of something extraordinary, and with the help of some leaders, we will blow away the seniors and the sophomore class will be who everyone looks up to. I want to be Sophomore Class President to help make your experience at Trenton Catholic Academy, completely unforgettable. Everyone always says “High School is the best years of your life.” And to me that sounds like a pretty big statement to live up to.
They head back to that familiar house that so many good memories were kept. When Fella arrives he is greeted by Nana, Brody and Brit. They all smile as they see their recently added family member. Throughout the next couple weeks Fella started his homeschooling and planned to return to a public high school the following year. If you wouldn’t know everyone in that crazy house was good at something from school, you just needed to know who to ask.
John Doe DCA Julie Jones ENGL 1301-066 DCA Essay Topic 1 For almost eight years now, I’ve been drawn to the sport of Basketball. Before then, I played little league Baseball for about two years. That was fun, but I was the only one in my family that played. One Christmas, when I was about ten, my favorite cousin, Jim, got a Basketball goal. Jim is about four years older than I am, so I have always looked up to him.
