National Honors Society (NHS) is one of the many clubs at Hillcrest. However, this club is doing some awesome things to help out the community, such as tutoring and mentoring others learning English, volunteering at Canyon Creek Assisted Living, and volunteering at the Burrito Project SLC.

Being a member of NHS looks great on a college application, in fact, some IB League colleges require it. NHS is focused around four main pillars: Relationship, Leadership, Service, Character.

“NHS will go to Canyon Creek Assisted Living to entertain and play games for the residents to make their lives more enjoyable and make them feel important,” said Ms. Michelle Hawkins. They will also have a homecoming and senior prom for them.

Hawkins is the new advisor of the National Honors Society and has made some major changes to improve the club, such as dropping service hours from 100 to 50 and monthly meetings are now quarterly.

“I made these changes because it can be hard to be a senior with a busy schedule while also retaining a 3.7 GPA or higher,” said Hawkins.

The Burrito Project SLC is a group of dedicated volunteers who get together and make burritos and feed the hungry and homeless in Downtown Salt Lake. These services build character and teach these students to help out the community around them. It also looks very good on a resume.

NHS is only open to seniors, but next year it will also be open to dedicated sophomores and juniors with a GPA of 3.6 or higher. Seniors must have a GPA of 3.7 or higher.

For those looking to join turn in an application to Ms. Hawkins or on their website at nhshillcrest.weebly.com.
