nhs logo(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The spread of coronavirus has affected every person in some way, most are still learning how to adjust to these changes. For students, this means online classes and fewer requirements for clubs. 

The LRHS National Honor Society (NHS) officer team and club adviser, English teacher Mary Ellen Eskett, have decided that there will no longer be a requirement to fulfill 12 community service hours for the second semester.  

If students already have community service hours completed, the officers will approve these hours. 

In addition, NHS is going to try and provide online events for club members. This will include teacher help and online tutoring. One of these events is available now for bilingual Spanish speakers who can assist online Health Opportunities through Physical Education (HOPE) students 

Members can reach out to Eskett or any officer if they are interested in volunteering to help teachers virtually. We know many people are still trying to reach their Bright Futures requirements and we want to help them in any way we can,” said NHS parliamentarian senior Manoela Dos Santos.  

Lastly, the senior regalia has already been ordered for graduation, so whether graduation happens or not, seniors will receive their regalia.
