NHS expands and honors community service

National Honors Society (NHS) is recognizing the achievements of its current membership and welcoming many new members this December.

“New member inductions will take place in the Findlay High School Heminger Auditorium on December 12th at 10 a.m.,” NHS President Lindsay George said.

“NHS exists here to honor those students who not only achieve academically, but also those who perform service, leadership and who possess positive character traits.  As students plan for college application it is a great thing to put on your resume!” NHS advisor and art teacher Nancy Frankenfield said.

National Honors Society applicants must complete 50 volunteer hours, along with meeting many other criteria. Once inducted, members must complete at least 15 volunteer hours each semester to demonstrate a commitment to service.

“Applicants are chosen by the Faculty council which consists of five teachers selected by Mrs. Swartz to serve on this committee.  Faculty members review the applications to judge whether or not the applicants have met and fulfilled all requirements,” Frankenfield said.

The new members will almost double the number of students in the Blue and Gold Chapter of NHS and will encourage more community service.
“The induction ceremony will recognize all new and current members for the excellence in scholarship, service, leadership, and character,” George said.
