Being a high school student these days can often be pretty stressful. Some students take on course loads filled with honors and AP classes and then spend countless hours devoted to extra-curricular activities outside of school. Add a job on top of all of that, and it can make for a very busy schedule. Maintaining a high GPA can also be a challenge when trying to struggle all of the above, but for some members of the National Honor Society, that doesn’t seem to be an issue.

Next Monday, the NHS will induct several new members into its prestigious organization, which is based on service and academics. In order to be considered for membership, a student must maintain a 4.7 grade point average and be seen as a good example to the rest of the student body.

“Keeping my GPA above a 4.7 involved countless sleepless nights, a positive attitude, and tons of hard-work,” junior and future National Honor Society member Mikaela Stegall said.

Stegall will be inducted into the organization next week and although it has taken a lot of work to reach and keep her high GPA, she feels like it has been worth the effort.

“Of course I feel as though all of my hard work has paid off,” Stegall said. “Having the opportunity to be a part of NHS isn’t an easy thing to do, and now after all of the effort I put forth, I can say I did it.”

During the ceremony, NHS officers will speak upon the behalf of all senior members welcoming the new members to the exclusive club. Stegall said she would like to be one of those seniors next year.

“I do plan on running for office my senior year because I feel like I could do a good job serving my part to help lead NHS,” she said.

Senior Bridgette Bonneaux leads the way as the current NHS president and is responsible for managing the other officers and keeping track of how many service hours each member has earned. One of the club’s biggest purposes is to help the community by volunteering and students receive service hours for doing so. To remain in the organization, members must also attend meetings and maintain the status of being a good role model on campus.

“It’s an honor to be leading the most academic students on campus,” she said. “At times it can be stressful, but it is very rewarding. To keep NHS running smoothly, I make sure all members are informed to the best of my ability. I also make sure that all the officers are fulfilling their roles.”

The induction ceremony for new members will take place Monday, Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. at the high school auditorium.

“I’m very excited for the ceremony,” Stegall said. “I can’t wait to be able to see all of my friends up there with me as we are all getting recognized for our accomplishment. It’s something I won’t forget.”
