Seniors gathered in the auditorium Friday for their first National Honors Society meeting of the year. Led by college counselor Liz Majors and leadership chair Molly Muehlebach, the meeting centered around fulfilling service requirements. Additionally, NHS aims to meet less often this year.

“NHS membership is based on character, leadership, and scholarship,” said Majors.

Majors explained further that she would rather members demonstrate these traits than meet constantly to talk about them.

“You’re supposed to have the best character in the school. You’re supposed to be the leaders,” said Majors.

She explains that she is confident members can exemplify this.

Muehlebach reviewed service, GPA requirements and further details meant to ensure students understand the conditions necessary to continue their NHS membership. Members must earn 15 in-school service hours and 15 out-of-school hours. A GPA of 93 percent must also be maintained.

Senior Rose Genaris wrapped up the meeting by introducing a new service opportunity.
