NHS duties remain valid through e-learning period

In light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent school closure, NHS sponsors Amanda Campos and Erin Rawls released information to current National Honor Society (NHS) members regarding updated membership requirements. No information has been released regarding the induction ceremony that was scheduled to happen on May 7 for current sophomores and juniors who will be inducted for the 2020-21 school year.

In an updated member agenda located on the CPHS website, the sponsors noted that no members will be penalized for not meeting their point requirements for the second semester. However, members should be expected to maintain the four core pillars that NHS promotes as e-learning continues: scholarship, leadership, service and character.

The sponsors encourage members to engage and help in their communities, while also remaining positive in light of school closures and the global pandemic. Campos and Rawls noted that although the situation may not be ideal, members are still expected to act with integrity and help others whenever it is safe and possible. 

Further information regarding director applications for the following school year and inducting new members into NHS has not yet been released. The sponsors concluded their update with reassurance, noting that any information will be passed along to current members regarding the club as it becomes available to them.
