National Honor Society has provided Megan Weber with a myriad of volunteer opportunities like helping with the blood drive, the Medora Musical, the Ronald McDonald House toy drive and countless other community events over the past two years. Those activities have helped her grow to become a positive role model within the school. 

“National Honor Society has helped me become a positive role model and leader in our school for students of all ages,” said Weber. 

Through the organization’s four pillars of leadership, character, service and scholarship, NHS has given members the backbone needed to be successful in life. It was with those pillars in mind that helped Weber develop her community service project last year. 

“Last year, I created a project to recognize the teachers at the Henning School as a part of Teacher Appreciation Week. With the help of the students in preschool through 12th grade, I was able to make a bound book of appreciation letters for each teacher. As of now, I have not yet started my project for this year,” said Weber. 

For younger students, Weber said they should strive to be the best they can and make sure to get involved in extracurricular activities, while also being active in the school and community.
