Student, Howard High School, Class of 2016,
At Howard High School, 3 popular extracurricular activities include Leading Each Other (LEO), National Honor Society (NHS), and participation (of both players and spectators) in interscholastic sports. LEO consists of sophomore students and above meeting once every other week to mentor freshmen who struggle with transitioning into high school, organize spirit activities around the school, and participate in bonding events to help foster school unity. Many students at Howard are also in National Honor Society where as a group, we organize and involve ourselves in community service projects. Sports games, tournaments, and meets are important to Howard because they are opportunities for our school to show pride, spirit, and strategy. Extracurriculars I would recommend are Student Government Association (SGA), Science Olympiad, and Cross Country. These groups are extremely organized, effective, and enjoyable. Being involved in these groups since my freshman year, I strongly believe that without them, I would not be as fit, positive, confident, and happy. A high school experience is not whole without extracurriculars.
