More than 80 LHS students recently joined the National Honor Society for the 2019-2020 school year.

In support of those students, NHS held an induction ceremony May 13 in the LHS auditorium.

Despite the rigorous academic prerequisites, the NHS is about more than just good grades. Jamie Bakker, the group’s LHS adviser, said members also have community service requirements and opportunities.

The evidence in the NHS impact on the local community is easy to find. Their work includes an annual blood drive, and book drives for nonprofits like Northwest Children’s Home in Lewiston. Bakker hopes for one more NHS service project this spring or summer so the group can make a donation to Family Promise in Lewiston.
