Are you interested in science? Are you considering majoring in a science field in college? Do you want to help the Leesville community through science? Then Science National Honors Society is the right group for you. During second semester, SNHS will induct new members interested in technology and scientific advancement.

National Science Honor Society’s goal is to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences.

Ms. Harper, the sponsor for the Honor Society, is an advocate for the sciences. “Being a part of SNHS will give students who are interested in science an outlet for exposure and a network. Because SNHS is also a general science organization, it will bring together students who are interested in all areas of science and give them a time and place to discuss their scientific proclivities,” said Harper.

Morgan Willis, the main activist in bringing SNHS to Leesville, is excited about sharing her passion for science. “Through this club I hope to increase Leesville’s focus on the sciences, as well as increase participation in scientific thought and service. Leesville is slightly lacking in the scientific community. We have so many great clubs but very few are science related. Through the Science National Honor Society I hope to see this change. I’d like to see more science clubs, and just overall more involvement with the sciences. Leesville is full of wonderful science departments and I want that showcased,” said Willis, a senior.

Concerning service hours for this year: because inductions are during second semester, new members will only be required to turn in 5 hours for second semester instead of 10 hours for the whole year.
