On completion of the project and the attaining of the Eagle Scout rank, I developed management, leadership, communication, organizational, and public speaking skills. I had to overcome my fears of speaking as an adult with adults, develop good work ethics, and become more organized. My career as a scout did not stop as soon as I received the Eagle Scout award; I learned service to others is one of the most accomplishing things I have ever done. I am still active in my troop and am a role model
This is what Old Eagle Scouts learn about themselves after years of self-examination. In the final analysis, you realize that you become an Eagle because you want to. (read that twice). Do not forget to thank your Mom and Dad and the many others that have helped and influenced you along the way, for their encouragement and help. Enjoy your journey.
Erica Taveras Mr. Monaghan Honors U.S. History 1 15 May 2012 The Man on Horseback: Theodore Roosevelt Over the past 200 years, the United States has experienced many different types of presidents. Some were great presidents, and others were not as great. Taking on the role of presidency is no easy matter. An entire nation would be depending on you, even when you sleep. Working twenty four hours a day and putting a maximum amount of determination and work, in order to satisfy the needs of the people, and keeping everything in peace and harmony.
The American Dream of Theodore Roosevelt Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your American Dream? That is something that many people ask themselves everyday. Well, Theodore Roosevelt lived his Dream; he was one of America’s greatest presidents and pursued his wild adventures. He did many things throughout his life and upholds many achievements. Through many adventures from becoming president to hunting big game in the African safari, Theodore Roosevelt lived out all his dreams to the fullest.
It takes some people over ten or fifteen years to get this achievement. I was only in the Navy two years and was being awarded with it. That was one of the greatest moments in my life. I felt strong and in control after that. I would always get asked how I got that medal when someone seen it on my uniform.
In first grade I joined an organization that would influence and shape me in every facet of my life. At that time I had no idea that that Boy Scouts of America would become my education, serve as my passion, and form one of my largest social circles. I progressed through the ranks, serving as every major youth leadership position, earning leadership, rank, and religious awards, and even developed a youth leadership course for the University of Scouting. I got involved with Scouting’s national honor society, the Order of the Arrow, and worked for five years on our council’s summer camp staff. When I received the Order’s Vigil Honor (highest national honor) in April 2006, I spent the night in the woods, alone, keeping a fire going while challenging
General Douglas MacArthur was one of America’s most accomplished and popular generals. He was a very important, powerful person that is still today one of America’s greatest leaders in history. MacArthur came from a wealthy background, born into a military family that was very high up and was very well connected which meant there were high expectations of him from an early age. There were many significant factors in MacArthur’s life that helped him become such a successful general. His involvement at West Point, the Korean War and his service during WW2 were major events that made MacArthur so popular and powerful.
While his sudden death may have won him sympathy in many people’s hearts, he was still seen as a great president before his assassination because of his many positive traits and the great things he had accomplished which warrant him to still be though of as one of the America’s greatest presidents, even to this
“He was a very accomplished American leader, at the end of a generation of leaders who could operate largely on their own". He was still an American Hero but also human. Unlike MacArthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower was liked by many. “I like Ike” was a famous slogan during the Presidency of Dwight Eisenhower. He won the votes of many because he was warm-hearted, friendly and idealistic man.
I was recognized as second-best in my diversified crop production proficiency area on the state level. I'm currently a candidate for Northeast district star farmer and will receive my state FFA degree in May, only 727 members receive will receive their degree this year. The successes did not come easy I worked every day as far as I could to get to this point at which I am now achieving personal success. FFA has helped me in so many different ways. It has given me the confidence to achieve those goals I made years ago as a freshman.
