Forty-two Fort Dodge Senior High students were inducted into the National Honor Society on April 8.

“National Honor Society selections are not easily made or qualified for,” said Ryan Takatsuka, NHS advisor. “They are based on feedback and criteria met from the pillars of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Members dedicate their time to helping the school and community through numerous and varied service projects and we hope our members act as examples for others to follow and also better themselves through new cooperative challenges.”

FDSH NHS members are involved in various service projects throughout the year including: greeting the foreign exchange students at a pizza supper, selling programs at the state cross country meet, sponsoring two blood drives at FDSH, collecting gifts for the Salvation Army through the Giving Tree and organizing a Pennies for Patients fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
