National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society are two organizations in our school that are completely devoted to service for our community. Members of these organizations spend their time in our community with their helping hands performing service.
Freshman Haley Owens takes the meaning of service above and beyond. Last year, Owens completed 18 service opportunities when only required to complete three. The great amount of dedication led her to receive a $500 scholarship from the national office.
“This is a special honor because it is a national scholarship chosen by the national office. I nominated Haley because of how much time she devotes to volunteering,” said National Honor Society sponsor Jaye Brewster.
Owens was first inducted into National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) her eighth grade year. This year, Owens hopes to reach 60 or more service opportunities.
“It will take a lot of dedication, but I will get it done,” said Owens.
This year, Owens is representing NJHS as president. She was elected by her fellow NJHS members.
“She is selfless and always willing to extend her help to NHS, but more importantly to the school and community,” said Brewster.
