The National Honors Society is a student based committee that focuses on a school’s scholarship, leadership, service, and character.At UCHS, students in NHS focus on how they can make the school community better and what events could be put together. You can become apart of the committee by achieving a high GPA, attending the first meeting and applying to be in the club.
Bianca Arce, a senior at UCHS enjoys being a part of the exclusive club.
“I like working with people — I am a people person.” Arce said. “I remember hearing about this in 9th grade. I got the grades, and teachers told me to take on leadership roles, and I took on that awareness about the National Honors Society.”
Arce urges people to become inspired by how NHS helps out their community. Arce has taken step like making slides that could be shown in advisory, so students have information about the events organized by NHS members.
Currently, NHS is working on providing clothes and food for families at the border. People can get involved by donating anything that they have, like old clothes that they don’t need anymore, and canned foods. Donations will be collected until January 10th in Room 210.
