Lion Chapter of National Honor Society Completes Fall Service Season
By Stefanie Panzenhagen - New Berlin Eisenhower NHS Chapter Secretary
This fall, New Berlin Eisenhower's Chapter of National Honors Society, the Lion's Chapter, has stayed actively committed to volunteer work in our school and our community. Between both group NHS events and individual service projects, our student members diligently worked to better our community in many ways. During the Fall Service Season our members clocked in over 675 hours of community service.
NHS’s most noteworthy group events were the “Halloween Trick-or-Treat for Food” collection in support of the New Berlin Food Pantry and the group volunteer work for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. In addition to these activities, we had members individually volunteer in a variety of ways. Several members volunteered to work at Buy Seasons in support of the New Berlin Police Citizens Academy Alumni Association. Other members helped to set up a Halloween Dance for children with special needs. One of our members, Hannah Kinzer, set up a fundraising effort in support of the victims of Hurricane Yolanda. This effort was carried out in our school as well as at Holy Apostles Elementary School.
In addition to the work in our community, our membership continued to support our school through the Tutoring Program. Our Tutoring Program has been an ongoing service project, with every member filling a role. NHS students offer tutoring support in ELO, during study halls, and even outside of school.
The Lion’s Chapter is continuing to earnestly work to achieve our goal of making a positive impact in our community. We will continue to seek opportunities to serve throughout the year, and look forward to a successful Winter Service Season.
