This past Tuesday, September 20th, the OA community gathered in the OA auditorium to celebrate the induction of this year’s new National Honor Society members. The National Honor Society, known as NHS, is an honor group which recognizes a student’s academic success and perseverance. This year there were 19 students inducted, making a total of 39 members. It is composed of juniors and seniors who must keep a cumulative GPA of 3.5 throughout the school year. These students represent OA both in and out of school. The group takes an active role organizing different activities during the school year, one of which is tutoring. Every Monday and Wednesday until the end of April tutoring will be offered after school for grade school and high school students. Another annual activity NHS organizes is the blood drive. NHS holds a blood drive in the gymnasium where both students and faculty can donate blood. As NHS welcomes their new members, the National Honor Society program is looking to have an excellent year!
