RPA’s National Honor Society chapter commits to service
RPA high school’s National Honor Society (NHS) chapter has been very active in the community throughout this academic year, planning and hosting multiple peer-driven opportunities so far, according to member senior Bliss Louvar.
The RPA chapter is composed of around 60 academic and service-oriented students who engage in service to the community throughout the year.
They are currently partnering with RPA’s middle school to coordinate an academic peer mentoring program. Each week, NHS students go to the middle school and foster a connection with younger students through influencing positive connections and a passion for academics. The NHS members assist in tutoring a variety of subjects at the middle school, such as biology or mathematics courses.
They have also launched a mentoring program at the high school in which NHS students staff the Glacier, 301 classroom, with the goal of creating an academic tutoring location on campus for any students to drop in for academic assistance.
To further grow the community at RPA, NHS students have been planning multiple Social Hour events at lunchtime on campus for students to gather and socialize. The NHS group has also initiated a Campus Cleanup Program in attempts to focus on an environmental aspect of caring for our local school and community land.
Louvar said that the NHS chapter at RPA high school has many service projects in the coming months for the community to participate in.
“Our NHS members embody the values of scholarship, leadership, service, and character and we will continue to spearhead initiatives that will enrich the lives of our peers and the broader community,” Louvar said.
