National Honor Society is a nationwide organization for high school students based on 4 criteria: scholarship, leadership, service and character.  It is a service organization for the community, school and other organizations.

“Joining NHS looks really good on college applications and is another activity to be involved in,” junior Tiffany Willson said.

The induction ceremony was held at the high school auditorium on Aug. 27.

“The ceremony went well, and we welcomed our new members,” NHS president and senior Anne Ast said.

Willson was one of the new members inducted into NHS.

“The ceremony seemed like it would be boring for the people just sitting there, but Anne did a good job,”  she said.

NHS does many service projects throughout the year around the community.

“Some of the projects we have planned for the year are student beautification, running the blood drive, Santa’s elves, raking leaves around town, tutoring other students and Angel Tree for the residents at the nursing home,” said NHS sponsor Louise Ronnau.

Another project that NHS has planned for this year is reading to the kindergarten class, Ast said.

The members of NHS said they are excited about the upcoming school year.

“I am looking forward to the school beautification project because it is great to hear that it looks nice from visitors and other schools,” Willson said.
