National Honor Society (NHS) elections for the 2018-2019 council took place in Room 142 on Tuesday, May 22. Junior NHS members showed their qualifications for the council positions through speeches they presented to fellow classmates.

The elected members of this year’s council are President Jules Andersen of Howell, Vice President Khushi Kadakia of Tinton Falls, Treasurer Allie Beekman of Neptune and Secretary Tali Petto of Marlboro.

Andersen said that running required work but was relaxed overall.

The process was very laid back compared to other clubs. Last year I ran for my class council and that was very intense. This year I felt so much better and more comfortable running for NHS,” Andersen said. “There were times where it seemed a little competitive because a lot of people were running, but the overall situation was really nice because everyone in the club supported each other.”

Andersen said she is excited about her position and has big dreams for the future regarding the club, including more interactive meetings and spreading the word of NHS to the underclassmen.  

Current NHS treasurer, senior Delia Noone of Middletown, said that she believes that the current council has left the future of this club in good hands and that her time serving was successful.

“I think we’ve left NHS in really good hands for next year. I loved every second of my year on council. It was awesome to represent such a large group of people at CHS and be a part of an organization that has such a good mission,” Noone said.
