September: The First Thing I Did as a HonorSociety.org Member
March 30, 2016 was when I received the email that I was chosen to be a part of the HonorSociety group and I found myself revisiting the email to make sure this acceptance was not a scam. Shortly after registering that I was not a contestant on Punk’D, I instantly got a feeling of exhilaration and personal accomplishment. I could not stop smiling as I hit print on the member benefits and featured scholarships.
It took me a few weeks to grasp what HonorSociety had to offer to its members but it only took a few minutes for me to share the thrilling news. Besides uploading my professional photo and editing my profile, I did two things immediately after realizing I had become a HonorSociety member. One, I ordered my certificate and Honor cord with pride. Two, I sent my mother a picture of my certification; the rest is priceless.
If the asked was, ‘What was the first thing your mother did the moment she heard you were a HonorSociety.org member?” I may have gotten a few chuckles. If you followed my mother on Facebook, you would have seen her emotional, yet proud post she made of this achievement. My mother may have been more proud of this recognition than I acted myself.
Even though the very first thing I did when I received notification of becoming a member was not study the website in great detail; I eventually applied for a scholarship and started reading the blogs.
New members, I recommend you really put time into your profile and you remain active on the website. If you can’t read the website daily, weekly is always better than nothing. This allows a chance to meet other students, see the benefits and apply for the number of scholarships presented online. And if at first you don’t succeed, please do not get discouraged. The HonorSociety helps members construct a system for future prosperity and all achievements never go unappreciated.
