Mary Eschmann – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Friday was a major day for prospective National Honors Society (NHS) members.

On Feb. 9, LRHS students grades 10 to 12 with a 3.5 unweighted GPA were invited to apply to the LRHS National Honors Society (NHS) for the 2018-2019 school year.

Forms were to be completed with teacher and sponsor signatures and turned in to English teacher and NHS adviser Mary Ellen Eskett by the end of Friday. Students can expect to be notified about whether they were accepted the week before spring break.

“It’s always exciting to get new members. We even invited some seniors, so they can provide input until they graduate,” said Eskett.

Sophomores Chloe Fields and Nicolette Ngov are excited but nervous about the process.

Ngov is also looking forward to possibly become a part of the organization because “it will open up a wide variety of opportunities for graduation.”

Senior Niki Cain is currently in NHS. “I like the involvement in it and how it helps out the community,” Cain stated.

Cain also is excited for the new members joining at the end of this year.

“I’m proud of them. The seniors that are leaving will get to hand down our duties to them,” she said.
