Nineteen Fridley High School (FHS) students became the newest members of the Minnesota Honor Society (MHS) when they were officially inducted into the organization on September 30, 2019.
“The purpose of MHS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, encourage community service, promote leadership, and develop character in the students at FHS,” said Carrie Wrona, an MHS advisor. “I am very excited to see what these students will accomplish this year.”
To be eligible for membership, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.4. Throughout the year, students will serve their school and community through various activities. Activities include hosting two Red Cross blood drives in the fall and spring; volunteering as “helping hands” on staff planning days to assist teachers in organization, cleaning, and other tasks; and hosting study sessions to tutor and help other students. Within the Fridley school district, MHS students volunteer at various events at the Fridley Community Center and Hayes and Stevenson Elementary schools. Additionally, the student group partners with Fridley Lions Club, local community service organization for community service opportunities.
FHS International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB-DP) Language and Literature teacher Daren Dressler was chosen by the students as this year’s ceremony guest speaker. The student inductees also had the opportunity to recognize an individual who has been especially meaningful to them along their educational and personal journeys. Students invited these individuals, which included teachers, support staff, coaches and relatives, to the ceremony where they each received a certificate of appreciation.
