NHS reviewing applications

With National Honor Society inductions right around the corner on Nov. 14, sponsor Melissa Henderson is sifting through applications.

“You need an unweighted grade-point average of 3.5, a leadership background, strong character traits and extracurricular activities,” Henderson said.

Sophomore Secretary Alyssa Feliciano said she has what it takes to be in NHS.

“I’m a hard worker and I have good social skills which will help me with service projects,” she said.

Henderson also had something to say to those students who didn’t apply because of the time and academic commitment the club demands.

“NHS is one of the most prestigious clubs at West Shore and looks good on a college application,” Henderson said

Henderson made sure to point out that the club is entertaining.

“The most fun moment I’ve experienced while being in charge of NHS was the teachers versus students dodgeball game. I will never forget the commercials with [Principal Rick] Fleming doing push-ups and telling the students that he’s the toughest around,” Henderson said.

While the application process is closed for fall inductions, students will have another opportunity to apply next spring.
