National Honor Society Sets Example

National Honor Society has started up at Dimond High School again this year. History teacher Greg Brown is sponsoring the group once more. National Honor Society is a club for students who have had a 3.5 minimum grade point average or higher for three consecutive semesters. The popular NHS saying is “Leadership, scholarship, service, and character.” This reflects the club itself, which works on academics, taking charge and leading, building character and giving back to the community with service. NHS has organized some events this year, such as the Foreign Exchange Luncheon, a lunch organized for the foreign exchange students at Dimond High School, and the club helped set up the Mayor’s Ball, a charity dinner that took place the first week of October. NHS also volunteered with Trick or Treat Town. The leadership positions of NHS are divided into two groups, the executive board and the committee chairs. The executive board is comprised of a president, Herin Choi, senior; a vice president, Emily Klopfer, junior; a secretary, Serin Choi, senior; and a treasurer, Ahmad Nasir, senior. The committee chairs are Matthew Summers, the senior in charge of scholarship; Connor Ryan, the senior in charge of character; Jake Jeffryes, the senior in charge of service; and Danika Paskvan, the senior in charge of leadership. NHS meets every other Thursday in Brown’s classroom, D201 during upperclassman lunch.
