Becoming a member of  the National Honor Society (NHS) is not easy.  To be selected for this prestigious organization, a student must meet numerous criteria. 

 To be selected for NHS, a student must have a GPA of at least 3.5, demonstrate service to the community, and complete a formal application. On average, about 15 students are accepted into this club each year.

National Honor Society is a club aimed at helping people. This year one of NHS’s main ways of helping others is by running a blood drive.

Club Vice President Michael Santini explained the purpose of NHS.

“The club provides service to the community, supports teachers, and helps out at local elementary schools,” said Santini.

Adviser Ms. Maureen Verwey and President Chris Hu (senior) lead this year’s club. The other officers include Santini (senior), Treasurer Telisha Ransome (senior), Secretary Rachel Polashenski (senior), Historian Cayla Wheatley (senior), and Assistant Secretary Niceidy Green (junior). 

Students who are selected for membership must meet monthly and participate in community service opportunities.
