National Honor Society - Vice President Speech


I would like to be the Vice-President of the Huntington High
School National Honor Society. The main reason I chose to run
for Vice-President instead of running for President is because I
have several extracurricular activities that would prevent me
from giving my undivided attention to National Honor Society. I
know that I can have a positive impact on the National Honor
Society. Unlike most people, I do not join a club or
organization just to say I am a member of that group. I join
clubs I know I can make a difference in. I love to be able to
have input and share my ideas. I am proud to be a part of a
prestigious organization such as National Honor Society. I know
that I will be a great assett to the National Honor Society of
Huntington. Because I am involved in so many other clubs, I can
get along well with others. I also have numerous fundraiser
ideas. In my past experiences, I have found that the most
successful fundraisers are those that are directed towards
adults. For example, a chicken charbroil on a Saturday afternoon
is always very profitable. We can pre-sale tickets to
businesses, especially car dealerships who cater food to their
employees on Saturdays. Usually, people will donate the paper

A time of aristocratic rule that centers itself on plantations and the institution of slavery. The antebellum era echos themes of white supremacy, democracy, unity, tradition, nobility, and honor.

We know almost nothing of the chronology of Ptolemy's life, and we don't even know his birth or death dates. We do know, though, about his ideas in several fields, which include geography, astronom

    A Victim of the Double Rape There is an old saying that goes "behind every strong man is a strong woman". This proverb can be used to describe the legacy of Hernando Cortes and his conquest of Mexico. Like the proverb, he had someone behind him who aided in his goals of dominance. The woman was Dona Marina, otherwise known as La Malinche. Her beauty and intelligence made her into one of the most hated and influential women in Mexico's history.

    Virgil At Odds While on the surface the Aeneid could be seen as a Roman epic meant to glorify Rome and rival those of the ancient Greeks, the author was engaged in a struggle. Virgil had to satisfy the cultural demands of his work, the political demands of his time, and his own personal demands as an artist. In tackling his problem, Virgil is revealed to be slightly reluctant of embracing fully the still young regime of Octavian but still proud of Rome and his ancestry, and concerned with the mo
