Faith Miller – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS National Honor Society (NHS) hosted an informative meeting for members for the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year.
NHS focuses on scholarships, character, leadership and service. Members demonstrate these aspects through the community volunteer events they host and participate in.
During Tuesday’s first NHS meeting, members received direct information from officers related to meeting dates, hour and grade requirements, volunteer form submission procedures, and payments for t-shirts and dues.
NHS officers discussed current and future community service events. Officers emphasized the difference between program-based service hours and regular service hours.
NHS President senior Nicole Chen said, “I’m happy with the way the first meeting went. We did a great job supporting our community last year, and I’m hoping that we’ll do even better this year. We have a lot of plans for the year, and many great members to carry them out so my expectations are high.”
This year, the program has more than a hundred members. It will utilize both old and new service opportunities to create a lasting impact throughout the region.
English teacher and NHS adviser Tracy Gregory said, “It was so nice to see our members again after summer break. Despite meeting right after a 3-day weekend, our members were ready to go for this new school year.”
Information regarding membership will be made available during the second semester of this school year.
