National Honor Society welcomes new members

By Madalynn Tagle

Every year a select group of scholars is recognized by the National Honors Society (NHS). These scholars have been welcomed into the NHS through an induction ceremony. The majority of these individuals are involved in athletics, leadership, the community, and many extracurricular activities. 

“I am very grateful for the opportunity that I have been given through the National Honors Society,” said inductee Adelyn Quirarte. “I am looking forward to being able to help my peers and community this upcoming year.”

The members of this group are not just scholars, but they must partake in community service. They demonstrate exemplary character and serve as leaders. Ms. Chelsea Odoms and Ms. Alexis Mattson are the advisors for NHS and have been working alongside each other for two years now. 

“I am very excited to see new faces,” said Odoms. “While I have worked with a few of them as students in my classroom, I am looking forward to working with them in a different way, watching them continue to grow as people.”

There is a sense of community that is brought through the services that the members perform. It also makes a difference within the community. 

“I have always wanted to help out in the community for a long time but have not had any way to,” said Ava Marquis. “Honor Society is giving me the opportunities to help out the school and community”.

Another inductee is Liliana Barajas and she is also excited about the chances NHS is going to give her in the future. 

“I am excited to make a change in my community and school through all the activities we do,” said Barajas.

The National Honor Society connects scholars to their community and their peers. It is a way for them to display their leadership skills and make an impact.
