NHS does service projects

NHS Activities

Wanting to reward students for their hard work, NHS members, Taylor Sells, John Kuhn, and Molly Moden,  plan to give candy to all those on the Honor Roll.

The TCHS National Honor Society is trying something new this school year and has planned many activities for the school and community.

NHS is a group that recognizes students who excel in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Before Christmas break, NHS members got into three groups that each planned a different project.

One group, consisting of Taylor Sells, Molly Moden, Emarie Schoenthaler, and John Kuhn made and handed out goodie bags to all TCHS students who made the honor roll for the first semester.

Sarah Schoenberger, Bailey Mattke, Emma Anderson, and Janae Huxman planned a blanket toss to raise money for the Humane Society. The blanket toss was held on January 27 during a home basketball game. They earned $179.65.

The third group, Cheyenne Nickelson, Aleah Howard, Madison Schoenthaler, Cassidi Hickson, Brendan Flax, and Bernard Giefer came up with a teacher appreciation project. This will be done later in the year.

The National Honor Society inductions were held in the TCHS auditorium on November 1.

National Honor Society is an organization whose members are recognized for developing and maintaining the qualities of scholarship, service, character, and leadership.

In order to qualify, first students must be either a junior or senior and maintain a certain grade point average. Following this, they must write and submit a short description of their qualities in each area along with two recommendations.

The evening began with a welcome and a candle ceremony where present members lit a candle to represent each of the four qualities. Following the candle ceremony was the introduction of the new members, and each member’s parents came forward to give a NHS pin to their child.

Present members include Emarie Schoenthaler, Molly Moden, Kacie Dunn, Cheyenne Nickelson, and John Kuhn. New members include Sarah Schoenberger, Madison Schoenthaler, Bernard Giefer, Brendan Flax, Cassidi Hickson, Emma Anderson, Bailey Mattke, Aleah Howard, Taylor Sells, and Janae Huxman.
