Spring has sprung and National Honor Society is looking new members! This fantastic club is now taking applications for the 2017-2018 school year! This club is on the search for motivated scholars with a desire to help the community and spread their leadership and optimism throughout the high school.
Between blood drives, donation collections and hundreds of volunteer hours each month, this active club is very influential in promoting a sense of caring and a serving spirit at Camas High.
National Honor Society is a group comprised of the highest achieving Juniors and Seniors that Camas has to boast, all of whom commit themselves to at least four hours of community service every month. Looking at the accomplishments of this club is incredible, as their compassionate efforts each month can be seen to equate to projects like serving meals to those less fortunate, assisting the elderly in nursing homes, and giving up free time to provide aid at countless events around the community.
In regards to both past and upcoming events and outreach, NHS hosted a drive to raise socks for the homeless this past fall, cleverly titled “Socktober”, where they collected socks for a youth program in Portland called “Breaking Cycles”. Having clean, dry and, quality socks can be life changing for many who already face so much disadvantage and struggle.
On March 21st, NHS will also be hosting a Blood Drive in coalition with the Bloodworks Northwest, an effort that has been very successful in past years.
If you are interested in signing up to donate blood, find one of the tables in either of the commons during lunch; keep in mind that you must be at least 16 years of age to donate!
If you would like to consider applying for NHS, please visit Mrs. Dignan’s room (105) and pick up an application! Please keep in mind that you must have a 3.4 cumulative GPA in order to apply, must currently be a sophomore or junior; applications are due to room 105 by Friday, March 17th.
