If you plan to take the fine arts path, joining the National Art Honor Society might be something you’d want to consider. Honor societies are organizations that group together students who have similar interests. They allow you to take a step further into your future, and these societies can look great on your college applications (if you’re actually involved).

Interested in joining? There will be an application form that you can get from Mrs.Georgia Geisser who is in charge of the honor society. Besides completing this form, students are also required to take a fine arts credit every year. There is a fee of $20 for underclassmen and $30 for seniors. This fee covers all of the materials used for the community work the society organizes and for the honor cord. Students who are not interested in receiving a cord do not have to pay the fee. Underclassmen will not get their cord until their senior year. Please remember that acceptance and maintaining membership in the NAHS is based on participation, and it can be difficult for students for who are involved in other extracurricular activities. 

Of all the projects the members produce, the annual art show, color run, and the Christmas sale reoccur the most often. This year, members of the society have made charm bracelets that were auctioned for the Heartly House to fight against violence towards women and children. Some other projects include making Christmas ornaments and other decorations. The funds made from the products sold went towards art scholarships for seniors.

Students have any questions can find Geisser in the classrooms A207, A211, and or C104. 

Linganore High School also offers twelve other honor societies:
