NHS Junior Representatives

Ruth Gleason

Recently, Eastern’s National Honors Society held a vote amongst their junior members to determine who would be their junior representatives on the E-Board.

NHS currently has an all-seniors E-Board team of 11 members including the co-presidents Hope and Eve Orban, co-vice presidents Muskan Rekhani and Reese Bower, treasurers Sadie Brinks and Jasmine Kaur, communications director Mia Dye, and co-secretaries Kelsey Pattison and Rishika Kokkula. With this board planning, organizing, and running all events related to NHS, having voices that represent the junior class was necessary.

NHS is comprised of both juniors and seniors, so implementing this change that allows junior representatives to participate in conversations with E-Board members was a wonderful move that began in last year’s club. After juniors applied for a position last month, the candidates were then reviewed by both the current E-Board and their peers. The top candidates were then voted on, with positions being announced over the weekend.

This year’s junior representatives are Lily Gleason, Noor Hassan, and James Dempsey. They will now be involved in and help run NHS meetings to ensure everything goes smoothly, as well as providing a voice for the junior population.

Lily Gleason expressed her excitement, stating, “I’m excited for the opportunity to influence our school and the broader community in long-lasting ways!” She continued, explaining how she is also “excited [to] provide opportunities for students to volunteer and gain the confidence and self-assurance that comes with helping others.”

Rishika, a current board member, described her happiness in welcoming new juniors to the board. She commented, “We are so excited to welcome the junior representatives onto the NHS Eboard and can’t wait to see what new ideas they will contribute!”

With a few months still in the school year, NHS is working hard to provide students with many volunteering opportunities and foster connection in the community. If you’re interested in joining NHS, applications for next year will be coming out this spring, so stay tuned! It’s an incredible opportunity to get involved in the community while also making new friendships within Eastern!

Outside school, however, you’ll often see her on (hopefully not in) the Grand River rowing with her team. If she’s not spotted there, then she’s at home with her favorite chocolate chip cookies on the couch watching the wondrous show “Bluey.” After graduating, Anna hopes to pursue a career in either Pediatrics or Neuroscience.
