Members of the National Honor Society chapter at Western Center Academy in Hemet recently produced a coloring book for elementary students in the Hemet Unified School district. The coloring book, titled “Our Solar System,” focuses on the science of space. The student organization stresses the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. Kathleen Hartigan and Melanie Thornburg serve as advisers for about 25 members at the school. “We typically do science nights where we put on educational activities at elementary schools here in Hemet,” chapter secretary Austin Montgomery said. “We get to teach the young kiddos about science and natural phenomena in an exciting way like bending water as it falls or light reflection with lasers.” [gallery td_sel
