As many people know, Cushing High School, CHS, has many different types of clubs and organizations. Students can participate in these organizations either voluntarily or by request of the teacher. One such organization is NHS, or the National Honor Society.

The National Honor Society is composed of students from across the country. They are observed throughout their Freshmen and Sophomore years in high school, and if they appear to host the right kind of personality characteristics that the organization looks for, they are given the chance to apply for NHS.

The CHS chapter of NHS is composed of 13 Seniors and 12 Juniors. These students have shown the ability to think outside the box and value their academic experiences. Each year, the students are required to do at least 20 hours of community service while maintaining a 3.5 GPA. These hours can be attained by working the concession stand at basketball games, reading to small children, working in soup kitchens, or the like.

This year, the CHS chapter has hosted the NHS convention for several schools across the state. They are also participating in Relay for Life, as well as having done many other activities throughout the year. The students show exceptional abilities in leadership, character, and service. Cushing sure has some exceptional students! If you’d like to speak with the NHS Advisor, or would like them to help you with a project simply call CHS at 225 – 6622 and ask for Katy Arthur.
