New Honor Society Brings New Opportunities

   The National Art Honor Society will be established on campus this year. Advised by Mrs. Jones, this student-led committee is currently paving the way for the organization to get its footing. 

   “I feel like the arts are always left out of a lot of things, especially in comprehensive schools, where there are sports and extra curricular activities,” Jones said. 

   NAHS is a means of bringing the artists at our school together and utilizing their talents to benefit and beautify our community. Jones especially wants to see that love for art within the members of the society. 

  “Art is not usually collaborative because it’s very personal, so this allows us to do things with other artists and kind of reach out to other people and spread that joy and that love for art,” Jones said. 

  NAHS will have traditional leadership roles including treasurer, secretary, vice president, and president, who will find service opportunities for members to participate in. When deciding who will fill those roles, Jones isn’t only looking at a student’s knowledge of the community around them, but the whole student.

   “We look at character,” Jones said. “Ultimately my goal is that the student leaders in NAHS will be the ones who go out and find opportunities for the members.” 

   Membership in the organization provides students with scholarship and contest opportunities, as well as community involvement. 

   “Being a part of NAHS is also where we give back our talents as artists to where we go and do community projects to beautify the school,” Jones said.
