National Honor Society (NHS) is nationwide organization that supports academic excellence, provides leadership opportunities, and rewards people for doing well in school as well as supporting their community. Students must be invited to the club to be considered a member, but they also need to fill out an application explaining their academic achievements and previous leadership skills.

At the most recent meeting on May 2nd, the new NHS officers were elected by the sponsor, Mrs. Hodge. The 2016-2017 officers are Hannah Raymond (president), Michaela Mulligan (vice president), Breana Bryant (historian), Laurel Wendt (secretary), and Ryan Regan (volunteer coordinator).

Hannah Raymond explained why she was interested in becoming the president.
“I like the values that supports academic excellence and provides leadership opportunities. I also like how it rewards people for doing well in school and for supporting their community,” she said.

NHS provides a variety of places in which students can volunteer to help the community such as Habitat for Humanity and helping with troops and elementary schools.
