Being a leader often means stepping up, carrying, and encouraging your team throughout tough times. I have been first spot on my varsity golf team for all 3 years of my high school experience. With this has brought a couple state tournaments where the girls were about halfway through a round whenever I was finished, and they were doing terribly. While trying to be a leader, I had to encourage them to finish and to do it with all that they had. Outside of golf, I also participate in band. With this I have been in the top five of my class for three years straight and have had to show the courage needed to go through with a performance even though the rest were low and concerned about following through with it.
“Student-athlete” is a phrase that is worded in the correct way to show to the young person what they should be: a student first, and an athlete second. Academics through school is a huge part of being a student athlete, because if your grades are not up to standards, then you cannot participate in the athletic activity of your choice. Pursing “healthy athletic performance” through being a student athlete means a lot of early developed study habits, a lot of studying, and a lot of nights that are used trying to improve myself academically. Being a student-athlete doesn’t just mean being a student, but as an athlete, you keep yourself in good shape, should always eat good things, and should always be able to perform well.
In my community, I take pride in having a hand in my community throughout my school, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Through my high school, I am involved in a program that takes upperclassmen and puts them with a small group of the incoming freshman. This takes many volunteer hours throughout the summer to go through training to handle the incoming freshman. Golf is a huge part of my life and through it; I am allowed the opportunity to help with a junior clinic every summer at the country club in Rogers. Through my youth group in Rogers, we help clean neighborhoods, paint houses, and go through various work camps to help the community.
