Brownstown High School held their National Honor Society (NHS) induction
ceremony on Wednesday, March 18th. Present were sixteen NHS members,
including new inductees Addison Cage, Melissa Wiley, Elissa Baron, Jacob
Bloemker, Colton Payne, and Joshua Rolfingsmeier. NHS President Emily
Frailey, Vice President Corie Sasse, Katie Kroll, Audriana Pruett, and advisor
Mrs. Seabaugh led the ceremony.
In order to be eligible for NHS you must have a 3.2 GPA or higher, and fill out an application. All of the BHS teachers will review the applications for a vote, five faculty council members will confirm the votes, then each student will be notified as to whether or not they were accepted. Once the students are inducted they are required to uphold the four pillars of NHS: scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
In order to uphold the pillar of service NHS members are required to complete a total of four community service hours per semester, perform a service project as a group, help with a community fundraiser, and organize a school-wide fundraiser. In past years some of the community service hours were spent cleaning up a local graveyard, assisting with a blood drive, working at the firehouse, and serving food at the local fish fry for charity.This year the NHS will be donating their earnings to Phil Wells to help pay medical bills as he battles cancer. Other
organizations NHS has raised funds for include Meals on Wheels, Brownstown Fire Fighters, the Austin family, and R-place, an
after school tutoring program. This great organization will continue to support the Brownstown community through their
commitment to service and charity.
