Mason Desjardins and Owen Lacasse, both class of 2023, and Angie Avila Rodriguez, class of 2021, are Forest Hills High School’s newest members to the National Honor Society.

An induction ceremony was held Aug. 31 in Jackman. Members were selected in May by the chapter’s faculty council for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership and character.

“We are very proud to recognize these outstanding members of our student body. National Honor Society members are chosen for and then expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community,” said Ami Amero, chapter advisor, according to a news release from the school.

The Forest Hills High School chapter has been active since 1974. Each year the chapter sponsors several service projects for the school and community, which in the past few years have included Red Cross blood drives, maintaining the school greenhouse, volunteering at the historical society and assisting the Jackman Region Community Association’s Afterschool Adventures program with various activities and events.

The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. More than 26,000 chapters currently exist nationwide, and since its founding in 1921, millions of students have been selected for membership.
