National Honor Society (NHS) at Highland High School (HHS) is working on several service projects coming up soon to benefit their school and the community. “There’s helping at track meets and there’s some community projects coming up in the next week,” said Stefanie Plato, NHS advisor.

NHS Secretary Maddie Schei explained that the track meet will be taking place this Friday (March 12), and the Winter Whip community event this Saturday (March 13). “I think that all of our upcoming events will turn out well and we are prepared for them!” Schei said.

NHS has been adapting to the pandemic this year with their service projects. “This year has obviously been a little bit trickier, but kids have been going out into the community and doing service projects,” said Plato.

They are also running events differently this year. “Hopefully we’ll have a graduation for the seniors, that is not clear yet either, so that’s also something I’m trying to work on,” Plato said.

Plato hopes that the students participating in NHS will build their desires to serve the community. “I love NHS and I always hope to gain more service experience from it because I love serving this community,” Schei said.
