The current members of the Monsignor Michael J. Walz National Honor Society at Cardinal Stritch would like to give you an update on their recent activity. Despite the setbacks faced due to COVID-19, the National Honor Society has still been able to meet for service opportunities. One of the largest service projects is making blankets for cancer patients. Some of the blankets are made out of bandanas sewn together as a quilt, and other blankets are tied fleece. NHS makes 30-40 blankets per year that go to area hospitals, Nightingale's Harvest, and this year they have added The Victory Center.
This March, we inducted seventeen new members to our chapter. Upon graduation these new additions will be added to our current 1,129 alumni members. Our guest speaker was National Honor Society alumni James Burns, class of 1969. He shared the inspiring stories of how he has used the four pillars of NHS in his everyday life. It was an honor to have him back at Cardinal Stritch.
We are looking forward to a productive rest of the year and are excited to continue the pillars of Leadership, Scholarship, Character, and Service in our everyday lives at Stritch.
