Senior Leaders: Q & A With Lillian Floyd, National Honor Society President


Yasmeen Alamin

Lillian Floyd, President of the National Honor Society

Q: What drew you to a leadership position?

A: I felt that I was a good fit for the role and I would serve NHS well.

Q: What was the process of getting elected?

A: I indicated my intentions to be in the election for next year’s officers. When the ballot came around for the officers, I apparently got the most votes.

Q: What are your responsibilities?

A: I’m responsible for most of the organization and planning for basic functions of NHS, like meetings, as well as some events and volunteer opportunities. Of course, I share that responsibility with the other officers: Bastet Zyla (VP), Annie Mildren (Public Relations), and Anna Earl (Secretary). Without their help, NHS would be severely lacking.

Q: What are your plans for your club? 

A: We are working on building up the club because membership and involvement took a hit during COVID. We are getting more involved in the community and helping reinvigorate school culture. It’s still under development, but all of us are hoping that NHS will be back to its former strength in coming years.

Q: What time and where do you meet? 

A: We meet on Tuesday mornings at 7:30 a.m. All NHS members need to know that attendance is mandatory this year unless you have an extraneous circumstance that prevents you from coming. Anyone who has not been attending meetings needs to see Ms. Taylor as soon as possible to get back on track.

Q: What’s your favorite thing you’ve accomplished through your club?

A: In addition to the many volunteer hours NHS accumulates in the community, we also have a few projects at the school, such as building bat boxes, creating a sustainable garden and raising awareness for climate change with a sustainable coffee stand.

Q: Do you have any plans coming up?

A: We’re working on getting more involved with the community and the school in a variety of ways, so we have a lot underway currently.

Q: Are you in any other clubs or activities?

A: I am also in the Thespian Club, the Speech and Debate Team, the Chamber and A Cappella Choir and Girl Scouts.

Q: What do you want people to know about your club?

A: NHS works to contribute to the community and the school by giving our time to various organizations. We strive to uphold the legacy of excellence that this club holds.

Q: Do you have anything else to add?

A: Thanks for reaching out to me! I appreciate the dedication and patience you have to report on topics such as these.
