Personal Statement
Hello, my name is Shane Richardson. In Stranahan High School, I am a jack of all trades. I am currently the only sophomore taking Mr. Hale’s AP Calculus class, I have co founded the science club, and I play tennis outside of school. I think I would be an asset to the Honor Society because I am really organized.

I tend to be sort of an adaptive type that will learn from events and make better decisions based on that data. This requires me to be very empathetic at times by know how others feel. I am also unique in the way I get dedicated to something. If I find something I believe in like tennis I will go to the park every day for two or three hours so I can get better. I will put that same dedication in NHS by stepping up. I want to hopefully run for a leadership position next year,...
