Shea St. John

Mission/Goal(s) of the club: The purpose of the club would be to honor students who, in the field of English, merit special note for past and current accomplishments. Individuals may be inducted into Society membership, and immediate benefits of affiliation will be national recognition, scholarship eligibility, and opportunities for national networking with others who share enthusiasm for, and accomplishment in, the language arts. The NEHS motto, “gelast sceal mid are,” is Old English for: “duty goes with honor.” The motto represents one of the earliest of our language – it affirms and celebrates an obligation to use one’s gifts in service to others. Service to peers, school, and community is part and parcel of the NEHS mission-and, indeed in the grammatical structure of the Old English phrase: “duty” actually proceeds “honor.”

Membership requirements:The club is only available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students would not be eligible for induction until after their freshman year. Dues are $20.

Meeting times: Dates TBD. Location room 216.
