Sebring NHS Welcomes New Members

Sebring NHS 2023

Five new students were inducted into the Sebring National Honor Society this month.

The students are all exemplary scholars and active members of the school community. All students who qualify receive a letter inviting them to apply in October. Candidates must meet academic criteria and submit essays pertaining to the organization’s pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character to be considered for induction into the society. 

“The kids involved in NHS are some of the brightest and kindest kids in the school and I am happy to do projects with them, whether it's fundraisers or hosting blood drives, says senior member Sadie Barker. “Being in NHS is so special to me because the group stands for all of the fundamental values that I have developed throughout my lifetime.”

The five inductees join seven seniors who were inducted into Sebring McKinley’s NHS last year. Together, the students perform service projects, such as hosting the building’s blood drives. Members also spend some of their own time completing service projects throughout the community, such as selling glow necklaces for the Sebring Historical Society at the park on the 4th of July, helping at area food pantries, and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army.

“When I discovered that there was a group that valued students like me, I knew I had to do whatever I could to be a part of that group,” says Sadie. “You always know that you can count on an NHS member to help lift you up when you’re down and help you with anything academically. … That was one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
