National Honor Society introduces new members
National Honor Society is a society of students who demonstrate enthusiasm for scholarships, stimulate a desire to render service, promote leadership, and develop character in students. On April 25 they inducted 9 new members.
“I want to show others that I’m trying to make the community a better place by helping the ones who need it,” sophomore Emily Chatham said. “I wanted a chance to be a role model in the community and help out by volunteering.”
They are expected to be role models for the school and demonstrate enthusiasm, desire for service, leadership, and develop character in students.
“NHS is important to me because I worked so hard to get in and I get to be in it with some of my best friends as well as some amazing role models, such as Alyssa Roscoe and Maddie Carlson,” junior Madelen Tevalan said.
Volunteering is crucial in NHS. Once accepted into NHS, 25 service hours are needed per semester according to Ms. Alison Bonham.
“One of the main things I did to get into NHS was volunteer,” Tevalan said. “I went to volunteer at many places like The Greenwood Christian Church to help serve meals. I also volunteered at By Tavi Boutique, and I loved it.”
