May 21, 2018 marks the second-to-last day of school the Class of 2018. The stress and anxiety of the last month is finally coming to a close.

National English Honor Society officers are preparing themselves by setting up chords for each senior to wear at graduation. The officers include: Brenna Lindsay, Haley Barge, Hannah Haught, Kelsey Ward, Mallory Safsten and Rosie Tillmont. Each officer is looking towards bright futures at college.

“I am going to miss all of my friends and the community we have here at Linganore,” said Barge.

Barge, President of NEHS, will be continuing her education and her soccer career at Franklin & Marshall College. Vice President Tillmont will be attending Christopher Newport University in the fall. Membership Secretary Hannah Haught plans on joining the ‘hokies’ at Virginia Tech. Treasurer Mallory Safsten will attend Brigham Young University. Historian Kelsey Ward will continue her life in the Maryland as a Terp at UMD. Corresponding Secretary Brenna Lindsay will also be staying close to home at McDaniel College.

Adviser Natalie Rebetsky will recognize the members and reward the seniors for their accomplishments during prep on Tuesday May 22, 2018.

The officers have loved their time at Linganore and are excited for their new beginnings. Tillmont said she will miss seeing her friends everday and the strong spirit of the Lancers.

With the graduation date a week away, the officers are excited to wear their blue and gold chords at Mount Saint Mary’s University. Good job Lancers, your hard work has paid off.
