Senior NHS members assemble into the number four to celebrate their last days of high school.

With only four days left of school for the class of 2019, the senior members of the National Honor Society are preparing to move on to bigger and better things.

NHS advisors, Mrs. Durran Ecalano and Mrs. Jessica Baker are ready to hand out cords with the help of NHS president Caroline Etherton and the other club officers, Emily Wolfe, Shelby Tkacik, Savanah Sitler, Jane Quackenbush, Kaley Henyon, and Olivia Gagne.

NHS is a nationwide organization for upperclassmen high school students. In order to become a member one must demonstrate leadership, scholarship, character, and service. Within the application, students must complete written responses to specific questions about how one demonstrates the four important qualities mentioned prior. An applicant must also have proof of their high school service via signatures of adults who saw the student complete the task.

Etherton, who will be attending Towson University next fall said, “As the name implies, it is an honor being accepted… It’s a big responsibility but it’s worth it.”

This year, the National Honor Society organized a campus clean up to help out the custodial staff, made trick or treating bags for children in foster homes, helped the Student Government Association set up the annual Eggnog jog, and much more!

After the current seniors leave high school, more responsibilities fall onto the upcoming juniors and seniors. Although the class of 2019 is graduating soon, they still have four days left with the honor to serve their school and community. 

“I’m really excited to be moving on to a new part of my life, but I will also miss my friends,” said Etherton. “Linganore High School served me well, and I had fun.”
