Calling all students interested in the Language Arts, join the National English Honors Society. 

NEHS is a new opportunity for all students interested in journalism, debate, and drama. Created this year, NEHS allows students to explore their passions in Language Arts and be honored for their work. 

The staff sponsor, Tara Oswald, says her goal is, “ a more concrete and visual representation of the creative work in Fossil Ridge High School’s community.” In the future, Oswald hopes to create a writing lab or tutoring center with NEHS to help students and staff. Oswald was involved in journalism and yearbook in high school stating, “That was my jam!”

Senior and president of NEHS, Kiersten Philavanh created the club when she saw that there was not enough recognition for students in the Language Arts. This year, Philiban along with a board of students will be working on establishing tradition, norms, and their place within Fossil’s community. 

With a hardworking team, NEHS is certainly off to improve the Fossil’s community. If you meet the criteria, Oswald says, “Just go for it, you never know who you will inspire to do great things.”

Even if Language Arts are not your forté, Fossil has a club or honor society opportunity for you. 

The first official meeting is September 11 and will continue to meet the second Wednesday of every month.  

If you are interested in joining the National English Honor Society, fill out an application by September 9 and ask a language arts teacher to fill out this recommendation form.

Correction: Spelling of Kiersten Philavanh’s name was corrected. The writer of this article has applied to NEHS, but is awaiting her response.
