On Wednesday, March 13, National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 18 new members. Those included 3 juniors and 15 sophomores.

All of the inductees were asked a series of questions. They included how they felt when they got in, what they are excited for, and if they have any advice for future applicants.
When they were asked about how they felt when they got in, most answered that they were excited or very happy. Sophomore Hannah Rethemeyer commented with, “Well, before I actually found out that I made it into NHS, I was trying to convince myself that I didn't make it so that I didn't get my hopes up. When I found out, I was really excited.”
Caroline Otten, sophomore, said she was relieved that she didn’t have to wait any longer.
Maria Sheible, sophomore, talked about what she is excited for: “I am most excited to be a part of a great club with great people.”
Caroline Otten also talked about what she is excited for. “[I am excited about] getting to be a leader and helping out the community and doing stuff like the Jingle Jog and getting to help out.”
Finally, Grace Allgaier, junior, voiced advice to give to others that want to apply. “Be a good student and try to participate in a lot of school events.”
Alaina Scott, sophomore, said, “Put yourself out there and when you are filling out the form to get in, put as much stuff as you can on it.”
McKenzie Pecaut, junior, commented with, “Try to be involved in your school and community.”
Congratulations to all of the NHS inductees! Keep up the hard work and enjoy NHS!
