Huskies Give Back: Science National Honor Society

By: Forest Langhorne
One organization that is involved in helping out at Tuscarora High School is the Science National Honor Society, more commonly referred to as SNHS. SNHS is a student-run club that performs basically the same role as the National Honors Society, except that it is science-oriented. However, due to its subject-oriented role, SNHS is considerably smaller than the National Honor Society, and it performs a much more specialized role within the school.
Science National Honor Society is largely designed to get students more interested and more involved in the sciences, but its members also perform service-based projects in the community. One way in which SNHS members help out in the school is by completing tutoring requirements for the club. Student who want to be a part of SNHS, as a requirement for membership, have to complete a certain number of tutoring hours inside the school. Students can get help from SNHS members before and after school during the weekdays on topics specifically related to science and math.
Another way that the Science National Honor Society helps out in the community is through the volunteer hour requirement for the club. Just like Key Club, National Honor Society, and several other school organizations, SNHS has a mandatory volunteer hour requirement. That means that to remain a member, students have to spend a certain amount of time volunteering either at school or in the community. By doing this, SNHS members are compelled to become more involved in the community and help out in different ways throughout the school and the area.
Science National Honors Society, while not as big as some other clubs and organizations, represents a great way to become more active within the school. Through the use of volunteer and tutoring requirements, SNHS works to get its members more involved throughout the area.
