MVTHS has a new National Honor Society Sponsor
Mount Vernon Township High School has a new National Honor Society sponsor. Ms. Raquel Maxey, an English teacher, assistant director for the theater, and the speech and acting coach at MVTHS is the new sponsor for the National Honor Society at MVTHS. Ms. Maxey plans to bring much more to the National Honor Society. Students from the National Honor Society will complete ten or more hours of community service each year; with more than fifty National Honor Society members at MVTHS, that’s more than five hundred hours of community service in total. The National Honor Society projects include helping members of the community that are in need, helping with blood drives at the high school, and much more.
Students are able to apply to become a part of the National Honor Society after the second semester of their sophomore and subsequent years so long as they maintain a 3.5 grade point average and receive recommendations from their teachers.
