The National Honors Society (NHS) initiated 72 new members on Nov. 14. The initiates joined 56 current members in receiving awards for academic achievements.

To qualify for NHS, students must demonstrate scholarship, good service, leadership and character.

“A student that’s in National Honors Society should maintain at least a 3.5 GPA, be a student at West High School for one semester, be apart of an extracurricular activity, and one must have good teacher recommendations,” NHS advisor David Kintigh said.

Students need to maintain qualities to be considered for NHS.

“Don’t fall behind in your classes, just don’t. Also, do your work. That’s how you get good grades,” new initiate and junior Nancy Le said.

Keynote speaker Kerry Hatfield told the audience that learning is an important aspect of anyone’s life. Students must keep on learning, even if they don’t want to, he said.

“Love to learn and learn to love,” Hatfield said.
