(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS National Honor Society (NHS) usually announces its new members right after Spring break, but due to the onset of the coronavirus, that unfortunately did not happen this year.
“It is typically a team approach, members putting the letters together and officers delivering them to first period classes with roses for the accepted members,” said LRHS English teacher and NHS adviser Mary Ellen Eskett.
The classes of 2020 and 2021 have received acceptance letters and the rest of the acceptance letters will be sent via email sometime this week.
Currently, NHS has the President-Elect and a Treasurer for next year. More plans will be made early next year in the fall.
“COVID-19 caused a huge upheaval for all extracurricular activities,” said Eskett, “The officers and I chose to forego the necessary (community service) hours for this semester.”
Students who have already finished hours or signed up for events will have the information forwarded to Kari Keech-Babcock in the LRHS registrars office before the end of next week, so Bright Futures scholarship applications can be updated.
