National Honor Society
Cardinal High School does all it can to get students involved with their school and the community. The main group that helps with this is the National Honors Society (NHS).
NHS is a group of students selected by a committee of educators based on their academic achievements, leadership skills and service.
Kayla R., president, says that she enjoys being in NHS because, “it gives me the opportunity to work with other students who have the same ideas and motivation.”
The advisor of the group is Mrs. Korenke and members meet periodically in her room after school or during activity period. Together they arrange projects for the community such as their recent one in the fall, Goblins in the Garden, where they volunteered to pass out candy to children.
The group usually has two main projects, one in the fall and one in the spring, with hours of their own community service in between.
Kayla R. also says that she enjoys being in NHS because, “it gives me the opportunity to help other students in the school and get community service hours” with the plus of getting tassels at graduation.
NHS is a helpful group and a wonderful opportunity to help the school and the community.
Junior Fair King Crowned
“YOLO, Lets go,” said Joey R. as he enthusiastically began his interview.
It was with this same enthusiasm that Joey won the title of Junior Fair King. Junior fair king is an annual award given to one boy in 4-H age 16-18.
One receives the award by going through an interview and being selected as one of the top four guys. After the interview, each boy writes a biography about himself and every 4-H club votes.
“I think I was chosen as this year’s king because I participate in a lot of community service and am very involved in multiple 4-H clubs,” Joey commented.
Becoming junior fair king is not only an honor, but also a tool to help boys make new friends and become well known throughout the community. It is safe to say becoming fair king is a great opportunity.
“Some of the fun perks were riding in a pace car in a major horse race, getting free milkshakes, and getting to drive the golf cart around the fair.” Joey said. “Becoming junior fair king was truly an honor and I am extremely blessed to have received this opportunity.”
