On Nov. 5 the National Honor Society held its third meeting of the year in the LGI.

“[The meeting] went well. It was a brief meeting [that reminded] students of volunteer opportunities since the deadline is soon approaching, ” Niji Shah (12) said.

Each NHS member is required to get 20 hours of community service for the first semester and 15 hours second semester.  

“I got most of my hours during the summer because I knew that I would be busy during the school year, especially first semester. I still plan on volunteering and signing up for events to work at, even though I don’t need the hours. I think staying involved is important, ” Rachel Gross (12) said.

Many volunteer opportunities were discussed at the meeting. Some of these opportunities included a shopping spree and craft show at Kahler Middle School and the Angel Tree, but many members often get their volunteer hours other ways.

“I’m planning on getting most of my hours by volunteering at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore because they have flexible hours,” Eva Kimberly (12) said.

The next National Honor Society meeting is on Dec. 3.
