OHHS inducts new group into NHS
OAK HARBOR – The Oak Harbor High School National Honor Society inducted new members Dec. 15.
Throughout the year, members of the OHHS National Honor Society serve as role models for students. In addition to strong academic records, which establish the eligibility for membership, members must excel in the areas of scholarship, service, character and leadership.
OHHS National Honor Society members are leaders in many student organizations and serve the B-C-S Local School District and community through many activities including their most recent winter service project — a fundraiser to benefit the Ottawa County Humane Society. Additionally, the OHHS National Honor Society chapter has held a supply drive to benefit the Ottawa County Food Bank and fundraisers to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House Charity. The OHHS NHS chapter completes 2 major service projects a year, one each semester.
“I’m proud of the effort that our NHS members put forth in the service projects they choose to embark on as the outcomes are greater than just money raised and time spent supporting others. Oak Harbor’s NHS is truly a student-led organization which could not be successful, productive, or nearly as rewarding without the help from our student body” said OHHS NHS adviser, Meghan Dougherty.
The OHHS NHS chapter has 29 members and is led by President Hayley Buhro and Secretary Anthony Stout.
