NAHS MISSION STATEMENT
Our Mission as an NAHS Chapter is:
To beautify our school.
Take pride in our artwork.
To make the community aware of aesthetic quality.
To continually express ourselves through our artwork.
As spring approaches, the Elkton High School Chapter of the National Art Honor Society has successfully completed many projects. Our homecoming week brought up an appropriate occasion to fund raise. We successfully painted faces of students to support and show our school spirit. We have been working on redesigning an Elk statue, which is our town and school mascot. The Elk will be painted with a sports design. The Elk is a statue of our town and school mascot. One of the last projects we worked on was the silent auction held to help support our local zoo, The Plumpton Park Zoo. The silent auction was not only open to our students but was also open to the public to enter and purchase artwork in support of the zoo. We raised $625.00 to help this non-profit to build a new giraffe enclosure and education center. We would like to thank Patti Paulus of the Palette and the Page for lending us guidance and the venue and Cheryl Lacovera of the Plumpton Park Zoo for giving us an opportunity to contribute to our Cecil County Community.
The end of the year is when we hold our induction ceremony. The committee will soon be preparing for this event. The officers of the club along with the members have been trying to gather support for our seniors on their graduation to allow them to wear honor chords in order to be recognized for their achievements in art and design. This task has ultimately brought our members closer together because there is a common concern throughout the members: to be recognized with honor for their exemplary artistic abilities and achievements throughout their high school career. The Elkton High School members of the NAHS have been creatively finding new ways to help our school and our local community.
