Sam Clapcich – Mustangs Ahead 

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Mustangs are waiting to hear whether they’ve qualified for the National Honors Society (NHS) program.

NHS is a national organization that celebrates students’ commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Last week, NHS officers delivered induction invitations to Mustangs with a qualifying score.

LRHS NHS adviser and English teacher Tracy Gregory said, “The Faculty Council should be done scoring the submissions by mid-February. Once they are done, the list of scores goes to Mr. Dahlquist, who usually is finished looking over the scores by the end of the third quarter, which is when students should get some information.”

Final candidates to be issued invitations for membership will be listed outside the classroom of the Faulty Advisor room (624) and on the school’s NHS web site.

There is no limit to how many candidates who can be inducted.

“If you don’t get into NHS, the blue Submission Guidelines sheet that students received in their paperwork packet outlines how they can go about getting their submission re-evaluated,” Gregory continued.

“For those who do not receive an invitation after re-evaluation, this does not define them. Just having a qualifying unweighted GPA of 3.5 or higher is something to be incredibly proud of.

“Work on gaining more leadership positions and service hours, and submit paperwork next year; we induct sophomores, juniors, and seniors,” she added.
