National Honor Society President, Mackenzie Smiley, and Vice President, Kristen Stewart, were in studio Thursday morning to talk to WPKY about the National Honor Society and their upcoming fundraiser.

Mackenzie told listeners that the Caldwell County National Honor Society is the Margaret Walker Chapter and is comprised of sophomores, juniors, and seniors with 3.0 or higher GPA’s who are active in their communities and possess leadership qualities. Once they are inducted students are members until they graduate, but must have 30 hours of community service a year and maintain their 3.0 or higher GPA. NHS advisors Leann Morris and Nichelle Faughn, along with the NHS officers, come up with a list of community service projects for members to complete, but members are also allowed to come up with their own community service projects as well.

Kristen then told listeners about the NHS’s upcoming fundraiser on Saturday, April 28th from 1 to 4PM at the Caldwell County High School’s football field. The fundraiser, Day with the Tigers, is a way for younger students to mingle and have fun with NHS members as they rotate through various booths and activities. The event is for ages kindergarten through fifth grade, registration begins at 12:30PM and cost is $20 per student. Mackenzie stressed that this is the only fundraiser for the National Honor Society and that the money raised helps to purchase the stoles seniors wear for graduation as well as fund scholarships given to graduating seniors. For more information about the Day with the Tigers event you can call the high school at 270-365-8010 and ask for Leann Morris.
