The NHS or the National Honors Society will have an induction for all of next years students, which would be this year’s sophomores and some juniors, on Tuesday, March 8. They are accepting those who got into the program and chose to be in the program. It will take place at 7 p.m. in the gym.

“Nationals Honors Society is it’s an important organization to belong to,” sponsor Angie Mason said. “These students go by these characteristics: character, scholarship, leadership and service. It’s an honor to be in it. The society will teach them about being a leader in the school and having good character. It helps the kids maintain good grades and also to be able to provide service to individuals and others”

Every year, juniors and sophomores with a weighted GPA of 3.75 or higher receive an invitation into the NHS. If they choose to join, they must attend the induction after filling out and turning in the application to one of the sponsors Mason and/or Donna Malkmus. The NHS induction typically takes place in front of an audience and consists of lectures and speeches from principles, sponsors, and current NHS members. Then the inductees answer questions in front of the audience, followed by a few more lectures and speeches.

“I think NHS is important because it shows the character in students and lets them get recognized,” junior Jameson Gabel said. “It sets them apart from other students and shows how hard they work.”

The society helps set up various community services and school services, including special school days including helping with hat days, scavenger hunts and assorted fairs. They’ve even set up donations to local dog rescue Five Acres Shelter. The society’s intentions are to teach the students how to do and work with community service.

“I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to be in NHS,” sophomore Kailee Edelen said. “It’s an honor because there’s selected people in the society, and it shows that you’re doing things right by being inducted.”
