National Honor Society inducted 161 new members in the school’s auditorium on Monday, Nov. 14.

“NHS is for students who have a 3.33 GPA and have shown evidence of character, leadership, and service, and we do service projects for the community,” Ms. Rhonda York, English, said.

For students to be eligible for NHS, they have to be involved in extracurricular activities inside and outside of school.

“I didn’t really have to prepare because I was already in sports, clubs and community service,” Lauren Davidson (11) said.

Each year, NHS requires students to complete 35 hours of community service. Twenty hours first semester and 15 hours second semester are needed to stay in the club.

“Most students actually end up going over. Thirty-five hours is just the minimum number. The national requirements require a certain number of service hours, so we just decided to set it at 35,” York said.
