Each year National Honor Society (NHS) recognizes a select group of scholars for their achievement in the classroom by inducting them into Lowry’s Torch chapter. Many of the members for NHS are active in athletics, leadership, the community and other extracurricular activities.
“I am very excited to be a new addition to Honor Society,” said new inductee Alora McClure. “In being in this group I strive to be able to help my peers and my community. Before joining the group I viewed members as a leader of our community.”
The group is not just about scholarship. Students must perform community services, serve as leaders and demonstrate exemplary character. Ms. Chelsea Odoms and Ms. Alexis Mattson serve as the advisors for NHS.
“The students that have earned their way into the National Honor Society have done so by showing excellent character, service, and leadership in and out of their school community,” said Odoms. “They work diligently to maintain high academic standards each year. In addition to their academics, these students set a wonderful example for others through their dedication to helping others. We are truly honored to be able to work with such a wonderful group of young adults who truly give hope for the future.”
The service the members provide gives them a sense of community.
“I chose to be in Honor Society because I like to help the community and society I have grown up in,” said senior Alex Barocio. “I’m going to miss helping the community. The group are very responsible and always willing to help.”
