High School Organization Fuels Community Service

The National Honor Society is an organization found in many local community high schools, and this is no different in the Prairie Central area. The organization is devoted to the things that keep our local communities running, such as community service and helping in many other school related events. Many students often commit to community service later in life, as a result of doing it in their teenage years.

As part of their local NHS, students can choose to volunteer any place of their choosing for their set of assigned hours, so there is usually a wide assortment of places that are helped as a result of the organizations doings. This includes churches, food drives, animal shelters, community events, and much more. The organization also helps fellow students with their homework in the event that they are struggling with a subject.

The organization is open to Grades 10-12 at Prairie Central High School and this year’s new batch of members will be officially inducted on Monday, February 26th. The organization stands on its four pillars of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service.

“Youth are our future. We would like to thank our local National Honor Society for all their efforts!” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops Group. “It is refreshing to see our young people doing so much good. We appreciate what you do for our community!” Bobbi concludes.
