Believe it or not, the world has several ambitious, passionate and dedicated teens. Seriously.
And when you bring them together to better the community, something grand is bound to happen. At Primavera, we like to call it the National Honor Society.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization. It’s not just an honor roll list. Rather, it gathers students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character.
In other words, the NHS club empowers outstanding youth with activities to serve their communities. You can see a few of these outstanding Primavera teens in the video below.
About Primavera’s National Honor Society
Like any traditional NHS, club members organize service projects and enjoy some fun activities. In order to join, students need good academic standing.
What’s unique about Primavera’s NHS is that students meet online. This allows for students all over the state to participate. Monthly events are also held in person at various locations so all students can participate. Really, it allows the entire state of Arizona to come together as one community.
Meet the NHS Club Advisors
Ms. Janyne Liddicoat, English Instructor
Ms. Liddicoat has been teaching English for 8 years. Her hobbies include reading (of course), playing video games, watching hockey, and occasionally attempting to learn another language or instrument. She became an NHS advisor because she wants to support driven, ambitious students in reaching their full potential.
“NHS students are some of the most passionate and dedicated individuals I get to work with,” says Ms. Liddicoat. “So being there to help and support these amazing young people is the best part of this whole experience.”
NHS is important to Ms. Liddicoat because it offers an opportunity to impact our various communities in positive ways.
“Being an online school, we are in a unique position,” says Ms. Liddicoat. “We are able to impact multiple communities across the state of Arizona through our commitment to service.”
Ms. Diane Thomas, English Instructor
Ms. Thomas is an English instructor at Primavera who has been teaching for 16 years. She also served our country in the United States Air Force for four years. You can learn more about that in this blog post. Her hobbies include dancing, singing and running her non-profit company Grandmas Hands International. To Ms. Thomas, NHS is crucial for students because it allows them to strive for greatness.
“I became a club advisor for NHS based on my own experiences,” said Ms. Thomas. “The idea of striving for one’s best is admirable. My desire is to support their best.”
To Ms. Thomas, Primavera’s NHS brings a unique perspective because it is online.
“Online schools provide many opportunities for growth outside of the learning environment,” said Ms. Thomas. “It is important that opportunities within the learning environment are supported as well. NHS is renowned for its dedication and support of student academic achievement.”
