Fifty-nine students, including 4 seniors, were recently inducted into  the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School Chapter of the National Honor Society.

National Honor Society is a group of the top students. All students are required to have a 90% GPA or higher and must have community service and leadership credentials in order to be in National Honor Society.

These students sponsor 2 blood drives each year and assist the principals with back to school night by giving tours and helping the incoming 7th graders get familiar with the building. They help Dr. Spaid, a CAJSHS guidance counselor and National Honor Society adviser, with PSSA testing by handing out the snacks to the test takers. They are basically on call with the principals to be the ambassadors for the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School if needed.

Nation Honor Society is a great designation on college and scholarship applications as it is a representation of good character and academic excellence.

Dr. Spaid, advisor of the chapter, adds, “National Honor Society is an important organization. While our projects are not numerous, what we do for the school is very important.”
