The Lena High School National Honor Society inducted its newest members on Nov.5. The guest speaker was Clint Wos, a graduate of Lena High School who is employed as manager of accounting and reporting at TDS Inc., a Fortune 500 telecommunications company in Madison.

Wos talked to the group about his journey from being a Lena farm boy to where he is now. He stressed the importance of having good networking skills and not underestimating your abilities. He encouraged students to aim high and work hard to reach their dreams.

Inductees to the NHS are senior Josh Sylvester and sophomores Carley Conrad, Keegan Imig, Breeana Kittredge, Sarah Manning, Hailey Salter and Sarah Waara. They join the returning members from last year: junior Christina Jagiello and seniors Katherine Waara, John Wenzel and Megan Wenzel.

The NHS officers are Megan Wenzel, president, Kittredge, vice president, Jagiello, secretary, and Waara, treasurer. Laurie Jensen is their adviser.

Each year, the returning members of the National Honor Society select one staff member who they feel exemplifies the four pillars of NHS: leadership, character, service and scholarship. This year’s honoree was Sylvia Rose, an aide at Lena for 29 years.

In addition to her classroom responsibilities, Rose sells tickets for athletic events and monitors after-school detention. She devotes numerous volunteer hours to the NHS, FFA, Student Council, her grandchildren’s classes and her church. The NHS recognized Rose for setting a great example for students and staff members at Lena.
