    • Out of school but still very much involved in the local educational system, two MEPO citizens were recently named the first honorary members to the Mediapolis High School National Honor Society.

      Because of their commitment to education and their contributions to local students and the school district, Naomi Dotson and Evan "Red" Wilson were singled out for the honor.

      Honorary membership can be awarded to "school officials, principals, teachers, or adults in recognition of outstanding service rendered to the school" (in keeping with the purpose of the National Honor Society), according to the NHS constitution.

      Dave Hickman, advisor to the local chapter, pointed out that Dotson was selected because of her charter membership with the Mediapolis Education (which is in its sixth year) and for her 41 years as English teacher at Mediapolis. Wilson, also a charter member of MEF, was named for his place as the only president of the Foundation.

      Honorary members receive a pin and are invited to attend NHS functions.

      A five-teacher committee who makes student induction selections, chose to appoint the two locals as honorary members.

      Though never done in the past at Mediapolis, Hickman indicated the NHS would probably appoint additional honorary members in the future.

      Dotson and Wilson were named at the local NHS induction ceremony held Tuesday, April 14, in the Mediapolis School gym.
