Members of the National Honor Society of Conrad High School cleaned the Orpheum Theatre this past week as a community service project.

The chandeliers are sparkling brightly after each crystal was washed clean. The woodwork was dusted and polished; the floors were swept and scrubbed. The windows were washed and the stair rails disinfected.

To top off the afternoon the students painted any chipped paint on the walls and the stage.

The National Honor Society has committed to this project for several years. George Tornga, theatre manager, appreciates the help, “Those students accomplish in one hour what would take me a month to get done.”

The National Honor Society chooses one large community service project each quarter and will help with a blood drive at the high school as their spring quarter project.

Members of National Honor Society must have a 3.5 grade point average to become a member of NHS.  The students must then maintain at least a 3.25 grade point average throughout the remainder of their high school career.
