Society. Advisor Carrie Butler presented each new members with a certificate, a membership card, and a pin to commemorate their induction into this nationwide service organization. Mr. William Eichberg gave the address to honor new inductees.
NHS strives to recognize students who not only excel in academics but also in the areas of character, leadership, and service. Students become eligible as sophomores if they have a GPA of 3.00 or above. Applicants are then evaluated by the staff and Faculty Council in those other areas before being accepted. As a service organization, the GHS NHS runs 3 Red Cross Blood Drives, a holiday food drive, and a fundraiser to help end child abuse in Van Buren County; they help at the Senior Citizen's Soup Supper, send cards overseas to American Troops, and assist in many other worthy causes.
