National Honor Society Induction

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Wednesday, February 15 Springwood students participated in the National Honor Society Induction program. President of the Springwood National Honor Society program, Venu Reddy, began with his Welcome speech and the introduction of 2 seniors, 7 juniors, 1 sophomore, 2 freshman and 5 eighth graders.  Congratulations all all new members.

Thank you Lady Wildcats for representing our school in such a terrific way and with a lot of class.

Speaker at Sessions Today

Wayne Dickens serves as the East Alabama FCA Director. He spoke and gave his message today to 7th-12th grade students.  This years FCA theme is:

“This is my command—

be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged.

For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Check out this link to: “Victory”

In his own words:

 I have the privilege of currently serving as the Area Director for East Alabama FCA since 2006. My vision is that FCA would have an impactful presence of Jesus Christ on every campus in the East Alabama area. Weekly, I have the opportunity to share the Gospel with schools in East Alabama. One of the highlights of my week is the leading Tuesday/Wednesday morning Coaches Bible Studies.

I am a native of Lakeland, Florida and a graduate of Auburn University in 2005, where I was also a four-year letterman and starter on the Auburn football team. I am thankful that God used the avenue of athletics to bring me to a relationship with Jesus Christ. I have a beautiful wife, Stacey; we have been married since 2009 and have a daughter named Naomi Gabrielle. I would not be able to serve in the capacity that I do if it were not for your support, so thank you for your partnership. It will help advance the Gospel in this area.
