Cedaredge High School inducted 18 new members into its National Honor Society Tuesday, Dec. 18. The event featured lighting candles for the four pillars of NHS and handing new inductees their certificates. This year's president is actually a new inductee, who would have qualified for NHS last year if not for a four semester rule.

To qualify for NHS a student must have attended CHS for four semesters, have a minimum 3.30 GPA and show excellence in scholarship, service, leadership and character -- the four pillars of NHS.

The CHS NHS group began in 1959 with four members. Now 32 total students make up the group, with 18 being new inductees.

NHS advisor Emily Cannell, also math teacher and assistant track coach, said NHS "gives a lot of students in various areas a way to come together."

Being a member of NHS means students have extra resources to prepare them for post high school. Depending on their school's emphasis, NHS members can have access to college admission and financial aid planning options, service projects and leadership development.

At CHS the NHS group focuses on community service. For example, groups of students are assigned an elderly home in town and when it snows they're in charge of shoveling snow. During Applefest, the students also help the Cedaredge library unload and load books.
