The Benson High School chapter of the National Honor Society held its annual reception and induction ceremony Tuesday, Nov. 14 in the senior high cafeteria.

During the induction ceremony, 15 juniors and two seniors became the newest members of the NHS at Benson High School.  These juniors and seniors were elected for their exemplary standards of leadership, character, service, and academic performance.

The new members of the Benson High School NHS are:  seniors Grace Lee and Madisen Wieber; and juniors Gracie Lenz, Matilyn Short, Matthew Ebnet, Paige Cain, Brenna Knutson, Jacquelyn Hanson, Jonas Habben, Riley Grube, Madison Gelhar, Matthew Goossen, Anna Samuelson, Maranda Wieber, Adam Forsberg, Katelyn Tolifson (junior representative), and Sophia Curriel.

They joined nine current members, all seniors,  Courtney McNeill (president), Erin Dubbels (vice-president), Emma Heinzig (secretary), Elizabeth Staton (Historian), Abbey Hoffman (senior representative), Matthew Connolly, Samual Lundebrek, Emily Miller, and Brooke Norby.

National Honor Society will conduct the following chapter projects this school year: Kid Kare held during Parent-Teacher Conferences, bell ringing for the Salvation Army in December, sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive in February, Seatbelt Challenge in the spring, and a continuing Food Shelf drive to support the Swift County Food Shelf.  Each of these projects has been well received by the communities of District # 777.  “We wish to thank everyone involved for the support we have received from the school, businesses, and civic organizations in helping us to make these projects a success,” Benson High School NHS advisors Jason Strand and Renee Helgenset said.

Students selected for NHS must uphold all four of the NHS pillars—scholarship, service, leadership, and character—in order to remain an active member.  

Members volunteer a minimum of 20 hours of individual service each year to fulfill the service requirement.  Please contact Renee Helgenset or Jason Strand, co-advisors of the Benson High School chapter if you have a community project that you feel NHS members could participate in to complete their individual service hours.  (320) 843-2710.
