The National Honor Society inducted 42 new juniors and seniors into the Theodore Ryken Chapter. NHS members are students who exemplify each of the four pillars of the club: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The members participate in service projects which raise money to support local food pantries, the Care Net pregnancy care center, and Camp Maria’s Project Warm, among other organizations.  Students are also called upon to represent the school as brand ambassadors for open houses, graduation, senior awards, the gala fundraising dinner, and other school events. NHS students also focus on thanking the community that support St. Mary's Ryken, including first responders, law enforcement, and the military. Juniors and seniors who have cumulative grade point averages of at least 3.5 are invited to apply.
