Scrubs Inducted Into NAHS

Pictured are the new members of the National Art Honor Society.
On Friday, January 7, 2011, twenty-eight “scrubs” from Piedmont High School completed the final step to become a part of the National Art Honor Society. Every year at Piedmont, students who show a pronounced interest in art are given the opportunity to “scrub,” or endure a 3-month initiation period in which they work together to try and become a part of the NAHS. This year, over 45 scrubs began the process, but only 28 were able to work hard to become a part of the club.
“The scrub process was tough,” says Jacob Major, a senior at Piedmont, “but thanks to the awesome group of people I scrubbed with, it made it worthwhile.” Major was one of the scrubs who completed the process this year and is now a proud member of the society. When asked how she feels about the club, old member Kasey Adams, Historian of NAHS and senior at Piedmont stated, “I am proud to say I am a member of NAHS.”
Once scrubs complete the process, they must still work to uphold their position in the society, along with fellow members. The NAHS sets academic guidelines for members to follow, just as any other honor society would, in order to keep students focused in school and on the right track. However, the NAHS takes part in activities that set them apart from every other club and society. Every year, this club plans and participates in community service activities such as Very Special Arts, the Student-Faculty Basketball Game, the Sharing our Hearts Art Show, and a walk for Cystic Fibrosis. “We are a family who comes together to help the community through our love of art” states Kasey Adams, “I feel like I am making a difference in the lives of the people we help.”
On Tuesday, February 1, 2011, inductions for all  new members of Piedmont’s National Art Honor Society will be held in the Piedmont High School Auditorium at 7 pm. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
