Macie Cichy has used her National Honor Society project to help share her knowledge with some of the youngest students at Henning School. It’s just one way the organization has given Cichy the opportunity to be involved in her community. 

“NHS has helped me grow as a person because it has given me more opportunities to be involved within the community and school,” said Cichy. “My service project is giving academic support and tutoring to elementary students in kindergarten through third grade. I got this idea because I like working with students and I feel like it is a good opportunity to volunteer in the school.”

Cichy is hoping her NHS project will not only help elementary students learn, but will help her grow as a leader as well. The project requires Cichy to provide good leadership skills as she leads by example and helps her build character within herself.

For underclassmen at Henning School, Cichy said students should try their best and try new things during their years in school as a person never knows what it is they will like to do when they get older.
