Club aims to elevate student leadership

The National Honor Society (NHS) has been a part of clubs here for many years and has existed nationally for over 100 years. 

According to the NHS website, the NHS “elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.” 

Jorie Wogmon, co-president of the NHS here, said that currently, the McDaniel NHS is having club members create their own events by setting up and hosting them for themselves and community members.

Some of the events that they are working on include writing letters to orphans, running clothing drives, organizing period and food drives, and tutoring. 

Wogmon noted that there are a lot of opportunities available from NHS, including building connections with community members and organizations, gaining valuable event planning experience, and filling out resumes.

Some of the conditions of participation include: attending at least 80 percent of the meetings, achieving a minimum of 20 volunteer hours by the end of the year, and maintaining an unweighted GPA of 3.5.

Anyone interested in joining can meet in NHS advisor Ryan Ghan’s room every other Monday. Freshmen, though, are unable to join NHS.
