November 7, 2017 Academic Awards NightPort Angeles High School Honor Society sponsored the 2017 Fall Academic Awards Night held Tuesday evening, November 7, in the PAHS student center.  Academic Awards students and their families were served dessert by high school staff members.  “This is a special tradition for me,” said John Gallagher, science teacher and Honor Society advisor.  “It is a visual representation of us (faculty) serving the kids in appreciation of their hard work!”

In addition to the fall event, Honor Society students also put on an Academic Social in the spring, volunteer to tutor other students, help with the college fair, help with Teddy Bear Tea, adopt a student from the Angel Tree, and host middle school Honor Society students on Shadow Day. 

“Honor Society welcomes all students interested in academics,” said Gallagher.  “We do not have a minimum GPA to join – this is a personal philosophy and not true in all schools – so that all students are encouraged to pursue academic success.  We meet every Tuesday at lunch in Room 912.”

The Honor Society and Mr. Gallagher would like to especially thank PAHS office professionals Bev Eisele and Debbie Lane for their great assistance with this event.
