National Honor Society Returns to Savage High School


Savage High School is proud to announce the return of National Honors Society. After a hiatus of several years, the club has been reinstated in order to recognize academic achievement and leadership for Savage students. “We really want to do more to show students that the work they put in academically is valued. It is very easy to recognize and appreciate what our students do athletically, but it can sometimes be harder to show that for academics. This club will help with that,” said Alan Hoffmann, the club’s advisor. Students had to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and be at least a sophomore to be eligible for the Savage chapter. In all, seven students have been admitted into the Savage chapter. They are seniors Trey Bloesser, Ashley Green, Riley Hagler, and Paxton Miller; juniors Lexi Joslin and Bryar Lange; and sophomore Owen Nelson. Once school resumes in January, the chapter will work to maintain the four pillars of National Honors Society: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. The chapter will look for ways to give back to the community. “I think it will be terrific for these kids to show their leadership skills. I can’t wait to see what they come up with to help give back to our area,” Hoffmann said. The chapter will also engage in fundraising efforts. Hoffmann has the eventual goal of giving a $500 scholarship to a Savage senior that has been involved in National Honors Society. “To be able to do that would be the ultimate showing in appreciation for the hard work these students put in throughout their academic careers,” Hoffmann said. The inaugural members were inducted into the chapter during Savage’s winter concert on December 17.
