1: The Humble Wildcat Salute to the veterans is a tribute headed by the Humble Army ROTC Program. We replicate the Tomb of the Unknown in Washington D.C at Arlington National Cemetery in remembrance of the fallen solider and the veterans. Each cadet guards the tomb 15 minutes at a time, taking 21 steps, stopping and waiting 21 seconds, and continuing with 21 more steps. The 21 steps allude to the 21 gun salute which is the highest military honor that one can receive. Its pretty amazing that we did this, but I was on guard during lunch, and EVERYONE was watching me, Ahhh extremely nerve racking! It was also my first time participating in the event. And some people even tried to make me laugh, which is definitely a no no, while on guard. Overall it was a great tribute, and it was so interesting to hear the stories of veterans, and their experiences during the war. | Humble Wildcat Salute To Veterans

2: If nothing else this experience definitely taught me that I'm nit ready for parenthood! JK The day went pretty smoothly until the 3rd through 5th graders came! One boy said I had cooties and didn't want me to mark the number on his wrist band indicating that he had been to my station! Crazy,crazy, crazy , but this day also brought back a lot of memories., when like was so much simpler,It also makes me wonder what life will be like for them as teenagers,. | Super Kids Day!

3: I almost froze to death. I don't know what told me to wear shorts, never again. I was still awesome, the kids were super adorable, but i think I jacked up some ones heart. I think it was cool that the kids got to just have a day for themselves because at school its kinda like no one really notices them, or if they do they prejudge them just because the have a medical condition, or because they're not like us. so this experience just taught me not to judge a book by it cover ( and everyones says that, but how many really do?) . It's also like putting myself in their shoes. & I attempted to be creative. FAIL! Ayesha was painting Tigers, and Siperman, while i was attempting to paint a heart. It was all good though. Next time I wear suitable attire :) | Special Kids Day

4: I object to violence because when it appears to do good the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent- Mohandas Ghandi

5: When th power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace- Jimi Hendrix

6: Kids, Kids, Kids and more kids. This however was much less hectic. we including other key club members from humble high school went out to Kingwood Middle School on a Saturday morning to assist the Kiwanis key club with the Triathlon, and I must say I prejudged the contestants and the parents | Going into the triathlon I thought t he parents would be extremely tough on the kids, sort of living vicariously through them. but they actually were very supportive, and the kids on the other hand were very competitive. Me and another girl helped with directing traffic but the people were acting like jerks and still drove right on through. not cool. | Kiwanis Triathlon | Motivation

7: Headed by Mrs. Ana Lopez and Lusisa. I actually thought this was one of the best C.A.S projects simply because it raised awareness, or prompted peace, and usually however unfortunately C.AS projects are contained within IB, or activities don't spread throughout the whole school but this one did, everyone really participated, and it was definitely a great turnout. | " There is only one race the human race and we are all members of it" | Peace One Day
