Mrs. Michelle Doyle was the keynote speaker. She spoke about the book This I Believe. She believes our generation is going to make a better future.
Mr. Doug Conner played guitar and sang “Forever Young,” by Bob Dylan.
Current members: Kole Kracaw, Hayley Noble, Samantha Buttrum and Sophie Kristof explained the importance of each of the pillars of NHS. The pillars are character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
To be eligible for the National Honors Society students need a 3.5 GPA, two letters of recommendation from anyone who is not an LHS staff member, and to write an essay about a given topic. Their character is also evaluated by Lowry staff members.
