Prospective Members & Cyber Seniors Volunteering

Posted on February 04, 2020

If you are interested in being a member of NHS in the coming school year, please attend the one of meetings on March 4th and 5th at 8:30 am. Please read article VI of the member bylaws for the requirements to be considered for selection.

In addition, it would be beneficial to have at least 10 hours of service before being considered for selection to NHS. Cyber Seniors is a great way to help out the community and fulfill these requirements. It takes place every Sunday from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, and please sign up on this spreadsheet and email [email protected] with any questions.
