Being a member of the Bonneville High School (BHS) National Honors Society is an excellent privilege. Heading into this academic setting is fairly beneficial for students’ futures. “Service, community work, leadership building, and amazing scholarship opportunities” are just some of many benefits of being a part of the National Honors Society. Being a part of this society will look amazing on a resume and it demonstrates high quality grades.
Only students with a 3.0 GPA or higher are accepted into the society. Not only are exceptional grades a necessity, but a superior sense of character is needed as well. People with leadership and teamwork skills are usually associated with this club. The BHS National Honors Society is a very well-respected organization that is an honor to be a part of. The society holds social events and takes part in community service. Their meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of every month during lunch. During these meetings, snacks are eaten and students exchange words with one another. There are currently 14 members and their club president this year is Isabella Cheney who is a junior this year. Mrs. Hawks, the teacher in charge of the National Honors Society, mentions the activities they take part in. “Clothing and food drives, making cards for the elderly and service members, animal shelters, babysitting, library fundraisers, school clean-ups, etc. Anything that would benefit the community or school.” These bigger projects usually take place after school or over the weekend.
Each trimester everyone is required to have five individual service hours and five group service hours. The lunch meetings held during school go towards the group service hours as well. There used to be membership dues that the club members were required to pay; however, the school has enough funding to provide all the necessities. Taking the initiative to use spare time wisely and do beneficial things for the community is severely important. Taking this step shows a significant amount of maturity and responsibility that the BHS National Honors Society is looking for. Not only does the NHS help students work towards their academic goals, but it pushes them to grow socially and learn advantageous life skills.
