National Honor Society
National Honor Society was created to recognize outstanding high school students. Two year members are Beau Daniels, Daniel Schriever, Carter Iwen, Luke Rasmussen, Trey Vande Kop, Grace Heimensen, Lauren Langholdt, Whitney Waagmeester, Hayden Heimensen, Tatum Jensen, Jacob Pytleski, and Kalen Meyer. For NHS membership, students must not only get good grades, but also have the characteristics of leadership, service, and character. New 2021 members include seniors Paige Dieren, Grant Hanselhoff, Emma Pedersen, Nathan Springer. The junior members are Emma Baker, Kaylee Davis, Brett Dieren, Ellie Dieren, Breckyn Korthals, Brooklyn Krull, Cael Schutle, Regan Van Wyhe, and Ashlynn Yeakle.
Being a part of The National Honor Society is a true privilege. National Honor Society is an activity that I would encourage everyone to apply for. This is a great thing to put on your future resumes and scholarship applications. National Honor society has four pillars that you must apply to your everyday lives. These four pillars include scholarship, leadership, community service, and character. These four pillars should be shown through the everyday tasks of a National Honor Society member.

*A few things to note: The faculty council is a rotating committee of 5 high school teachers who remain anonymous. The adviser does not cast a vote in the faculty council meeting. There is no set number of students that make NHS. There is no set percentage either. The council votes largely on the student information form and the comments from all of the teachers; therefore, the number of members vary each year.
