National Honor Society Contributions

Reported By: Gabriella Stalter

National Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. Such students are recognized for demonstrating excellence in the four pillars: scholarship, leadership, service and character. Each year, a select number of juniors are selected, from each school, to become a National Honor Society Member during their senior year of high school. Once selected, students are inducted and begin their membership. In order to maintain their membership status, each student must continue to demonstrate all four pillars in both the school and community.

This week alone, NHS members from the CPP High School are supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the local Food Bank, the local science fair, and the Lion’s Club. To help the local food bank, 16 NHS students have volunteered to go to the Food Bank from 4-5:30 pm on Thursday, March 14th to lend a helping hand, where needed.  To support the Lion’s Club, NHS members are volunteering their time to assist at the Lion’s Club Fun Day on Saturday, March 16th from 10am to 12pm. They will assist in minor activities such as face painting and booth control. In addition, volunteers are are assisting Saturday, March 16th in the local Science Fair. They will help set up and tear down the CPP Gymnasium, along with assisting people who are not knowledgeable about signing in, getting set up, and appropriate entries and exits. Lastly, all members have participated in selling shamrocks to support MDA, the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Along with individually selling these to family, friends, and co-workers, a select few have volunteered to sell shamrocks, in the cafeteria, during the school’s six lunch sections. The selling of shamrocks started on Monday, March 11th and will end on Thursday, March 14th. All proceeds will go to the MDA to support funding for muscular dystrophy diseases.

According to Senior Sara Frutos, “I think in retrospect the NHS organization sets us up well to support organizations and groups that we may have otherwise not helped, however I believe it is truly up to the members on whether we help or not, and what degree we do so.”
