The Mount Union Area High School’s National Honor Society (NHS) recently held its annual induction ceremony in the high school auditorium. Inductees were honored in front of their friends, classmates and family. This year, twenty new members joined the organization.
Prospective members were required to complete 24 hours of community service and prove themselves exceptional in the classroom as well by maintaining a minimum of 3.8 GPA. In addition, students must receive sufficient ratings from teachers and organization advisors.
Giving back to their community doesn’t end with their induction. NHS members are currently collecting food for the Mount Union Food Pantry, goods that will be delivered Christmas Eve and Christmas morning to community members in need.
NHS members and volunteers will also be adorning the streets of Mount Union with luminaries again this year. NHS would like to invite community members to participate in “Lighting the Way for the Messiah” on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Those interested in setting out luminaries should meet at the teen center on Shirley Street at 3 p.m. Monday, Dec. 24. Those more interested in cleaning up should meet at the teen center at 5 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 25.
Inductee sophomore Ian Brodbeck commented, “As a new member of National Honor Society, I am truly excited to help out with the upcoming community service opportunities.”
