NHS Inducts New Members

This fall 71 new members were inducted into Churchville-Chili Central School District’s High School National Honor Society (NHS).
The NHS is a program for high school juniors and seniors with a weighted, overall grade point average of 90 or above. In addition to scholarship, members must also demonstrate character, leadership, citizenship and actively participate in community service. Students formally apply in the fall of their junior or senior year. Applications and letters of recommendation are reviewed by faculty in October, and new members are inducted in November.
NHS members complete community service/volunteer work when opportunities or needs become available. The expectation is that current members complete at least 20 service hours per year. Common activities include: Black Creek Park trail pick-up; leaf raking/yard work for community members; winter clothing drives; help with teacher interview practice lessons; assist with the National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony; library book sales; peer tutoring; teacher-of-the-month recognition and many others.
“This group always amazes me with their ability to balance school, extracurricular activities, work and preparing for life after Churchville-Chili,” said NHS Advisor Paul Glor. “They have a variety of personalities, but all bring something special to our school community. Every time I work with this group I know our future is in good hands.”
Each spring members of NHS are asked to nominate a high school teacher who has made an impact on them. The club officers and advisor look at the nominations, tally the votes, consider unique circumstances and then select that teacher to be recognized. This tradition goes back many years, and the recipient is recognized with a certificate, gift and their classroom door is decorated. They are also asked to be the guest speaker at the fall NHS Induction Ceremony. This year’s Teacher of the Year was Mr. Micah Court, a SHS Math teacher who has been with the district for nine years. “Mr. Court is the first one here, is always teaching, gives 100% to his students and is passionate about math,” said Glor.
