NAHS: Their Mission to Add a Little Color into Our Lives

As of this school year, the McNeil chapter of National Art Honor Society, also known as NAHS, has merged with the school’s Art Club. Sponsored by Chris Robbins, NAHS’s main goal and purpose is to have the school and surrounding community include artistic and unique elements as part of their environment. At meetings, members create new art pieces or crafts that would help the community in anyway.

Ever since NAHS joined with Art Club, members are able to complete the points, and volunteer opportunities and other requirements to be recognized to be a part of a national organization,” president of NAHS senior Esther Shin said. “But through Art Club, they are able to be free spirited in their creativity, and express themselves and be with like-minded, as well as different, diverse people. Because we were able to join Art Club, art came to become more central in our goals.”

The club has about 20 members, yet they still induct new members who want to join, depending on the circumstance. Membership requires filling out an application and paying a $10 fee.

“If you want to be an official member, you need to fill out the NAHS application and pay a fee before the deadline,” Shin said. “Which has already passed but we make exceptions sometimes.”

For aspiring art students or students who just love to let their inner creativity shine, a club such as this one can be the perfect fit. For those interested, NAHS meets every Tuesday in room A100.
