Red Lion’s National Art Honor Society (NAHS) has always been composed of a unique group of students.
“I really like seeing kids who would normally pass each other in the halls come here and make connections,” Ms. Kelly McBrien, NAHS advisor, said. “When you come into this room, you have a great mix of kids, from athletes to really booksmart kids, or maybe even kids that don’t like to participate in a lot of extracurriculars. They come in here and come together.”
It is this mix that allows for the group to do so many different events for their service hours. These events vary from face painting to planning for murals and decorating windows.
Over the next few months, NAHS has several service events planned.

Mirth and merriment were what awaited the AP English, British Literature and Drama students who attended the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire on Oct. 8.
At the gate, students were warmly welcomed by an assortment of characters ranging from peasants and pirates to merchants and musicians. They were paraded through the town and waited at the stage where they met King Henry VIII and his Queen Catherine of Aragon.
Instantly students were taken back to 1509 when Henry was to be crowned the new king of England. Conflict arises when Edmund de Pole arrived and challenged Henry for his own right to the throne. The two agreed to resolve the matter in a game of human chess later on at noon.
After the scene for the day was set, students were free to visit vendors and shows as well as gorge themselves on a plethora of food.

Following tradition, high school homecomings draw a fairly large crowd. People enjoy things like picking out dresses or suits, going out to eat, and dancing with a date or with friends.
So when the possibility of having a second homecoming in the winter popped up, many people responded positively. In an informal survey conducted by The Leonid during lunch, 84 percent of people said they would go; 16 percent said they would not.
Despite the predominantly positive feedback, Red Lion High School will not have a winter homecoming, or a “SnoCo”, as it would have been called.
