39 Join National English Honor Society

The Fitzgerald Chapter of the National English Honor Society was proud to induct 39 new members at a celebratory breakfast on Dec. 4 at North Salem High School.

NEHS membership is an honor bestowed upon students who have attained academic excellence in English courses throughout their high school careers. Members of the Fitzgerald Chapter participate in various activities throughout the district to promote literacy and writing skills.

In 2015 alone, senior NEHS members volunteered at Pequenakonck Elementary School's annual Harvest Fair, helped sixth-graders compose pen pal letters, coached eighth-graders who were creating public service announcements and assisted freshmen with documentation techniques in their research papers.

Congratulations and good luck to all of the new members.
