On Thursday, Oct.29 at 6:30 p.m., the National Honor Society will hold its annual induction in the auditorium. This very precise nation-wide organization was officially established in 1921 to honor and reward hard-working high school students. At LCM, NHS has gone to great lengths to represent the school, community, and the student body in very noble ways.

Senior and NHS President Vinny Hale will be speaking and leading the ceremony on Thursday night.

“It’s a great experience being an officer because you get to help assist all the other members,” Hale said. “It’s always fun to lead a group of your peers in the right direction.”

In the LCM chapter, there are a total of 101 members. To be eligible for NHS, students must be a junior or senior in high school with a GPA of 4.75 or higher. The students with qualifying GPA’s are then evaluated by the faculty on their service, character, and leadership qualities. On Thursday, 64 more students will be getting inducted into the NHS.

“It’s an honor to be in the same organization as so many prestigious peers of mine,” junior inductee Bailey Noah said. “It makes me feel like my hard work paid off.”

The other officers in the LCM chapter are: Vice President Courtney Price, Treasurer Joseph Tran, Student Council Representative Kami Foskey, Service Chairman Payton Bickham, Project Chairman Rebecca Brown, and Historian Sheridan Rogers. To be selected for these officer positions, the students were nominated by one of the other members and then a vote was held.

Many of the long-time NHS members worked hard to prepare for Thursday night’s events.

“The officers and I worked closely to decide on the guest speaker, Mr. DuBose.” Hale said.

Throughout the year, NHS takes part in a variety of community service activities. The members work with other service groups such as different church organizations and they even have members work with groups like the Orange Lions Club at the annual carnival.

“Something unique about being in NHS is that it’s not something you can just sign up and join,” Hale said. “It’s considered a prestigious group that members must be chosen for. Also, its’ dedication to service separates it from many other organizations.”
