I hope all students and their families are staying safe and healthy. I am proud of our honor society as it has helped many people and organizations so far this year. For April the officers and I met yesterday on Google Meet and will be trying to arrange voluntary Google Meets for small groups later in April. Hopefully, we can keep the unity, enthusiasm and dedication of our members going remotely. As a reminder, there is no requirement for community service going forward. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
