Day 132 - National Honor Society Induction

Today's post is from junior NHS Officer Fletcher Friday

April 13th’s Induction Ceremony marked the true beginning of 35 students’ National Honor Society membership. The ceremony started off with a very well rehearsed entry from all of the new members, highlighted with a unison seating. The action started with some opening remarks from Mr. Lenz. Then it was time for the officers to offer their insights into the four pillars of National Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Then the moment we’d all been waiting for, the induction of the new members, finally arrived. Again in perfect unison, the inductees headed to the stage to receive their certificates from Mr. Fischer. There were many a camera flash. Next, senior officers Mackenzie Strehle and Claire Erickson gave a brief overview of the exceptional service projects that National Honor Society has participated in this year. The members inducted last year also received their time in the spotlight, being announced along with their intended college and major. Mrs. Gravelle closed out the ceremony with a heartfelt testimony to how the our school’s members truly do exemplify the four pillars of National Honor Society. Just because the ceremony was over didn’t mean that the party was. All in attendance were treated to refreshments. Several of the seniors served cake, and what service it was. Those pieces of cake were huge!

This whole event made me proud that our school has so many kids dedicated not only to their academics, but also to helping others and being good people. I am also proud that our school has great teachers that dedicate themselves to making not only occasions like this a success, but also National Honor Society as a whole.
