   On Thursday, April. 19, current National Honor Society officers will be passing their roles onto new leaders. At Lakeview’s awards ceremony, these five positions will be announced along with the induction of new members.

  National Honor Society is a high school organization that allows members to participate in volunteer work and give back to their community.

  The new officers applied with Nicole Rakozy, social studies teacher and adviser of NHS. Each student that applied won their position because they all ran unopposed.

  Caroline Oster, ‘20, treasurer, believes that NHS is great organization for all students.

  Oster voiced, “I think NHS provides great service opportunities and you feel like you can make a difference in the school and in the outside community.”

  The organization requires members to turn in a certain amount of service hours each quarter. Service opportunities are announced at monthly meetings and posted on edmodo, making volunteering very easy.

  Being a member makes a lot of students feel like a better person.

  “Through all the community service I’ve done, I’ve found myself to be a lot happier to be able to help someone out and just being a good citizen overall,” explained Pamela Galindo ‘20, historian.

  NHS gets students involved outside of school events and pushes them to participate in their community. It introduces members to new people who also want to help out.

  Morgan Jackson ‘18 was this year’s NHS president. She offered advice to all the new officers.

“Definitely try to be as involved as possible and help others achieve success in NHS. National Honor Society means nothing unless we work together,” exclaimed Jackson.

  She encourages all students to apply to be a member because it has benefitted herself.  

  Jackson stated, “Being president of NHS has really helped me branch out more to people and help people more.”

  National Honor Society is a great chance for all students to get more involved with their community and fellow members. It allows them to spend some free time thinking of  others before themselves. This organization offers benefits, not only to its members, but people in the community too.
