Hull High School’s own National Honor Society inducted 22 new members last Wednesday, only a few weeks before the chapter’s next community service project.
The National Honor Society, or NHS, is the country’s longest-standing honor society. As such, it promotes the qualities of scholarship, character, leadership, and service in students and in schools. To be granted membership is truly a prestigious honor.
At the induction ceremony, which was open to the public, the NHS officers each gave a short speech on the ideals of the society. Additionally, Parry Harper, president, offered his own remarks, as did HHS Principal Nicole Nosek and guest speaker Tara Grosso.
The induction comes just two weeks before the honor society’s upcoming Blood Drive for the American Red Cross. The Blood Drive will take place on Nov. 4 in the high school gym, from 10 a.m. to 3 pm. There are 19 available spots remaining for interested donors.
Mrs. Wall, HHS English teacher and NHS chapter head, said the Blood Drive is a great opportunity for students and the community because it is “one of the yearly opportunities NHS takes to give back to the community at large.”
The Red Cross is currently experiencing a severe shortage of blood, so the drive is expected to help not only Hull but surrounding communities.
Wall added that the event is also an opportunity for NHS students to meet and interact with Red Cross employees and volunteers, especially if they are interested in going into a similar career.
