On February 27th, the seniors of the National Honor Society (NHS) welcomed a new generation of members. Juniors with an unweighted GPA of at least 3.6 were invited to join.

Attendees were welcomed by a quartet that played songs such as, “Over the Rainbow”. After an introduction by sponsors Mrs. Dill and Mrs. Hardin, short speeches were given by its standing committee members, each speaking for the “Standard of Excellence” members are held to: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

Treasurer Colby Grant spoke of the value of scholarship,while secretary David Choate discussed the merit of service and Leila About-Jaoude, vice president, about the importance of leadership. President Taleah Gipson spoke for the character that distinguishes the inductees and “guides one through life.”

After reciting their pledges to the NHS, each student was called to the stage one by one, where they received their certificates and shook hands with Mrs. Dill and Mr. Jacobs. The crowd remained silent, except for when President Taleah made it a point to have a student come to the podium and say his own name, not wanting to mispronounce it since she herself understood the frustration.

In his speech, Mr. Jacobs commented, “This event has a formality we haven’t seen in previous years. The next time I will be formally shaking your hand is at graduation.”

Inductees are excited to be joining. “It’s an honor to see our hard work pay off,” said Michayla Gatsos.

It’s more than just an award, however. “The NHS is a great club,” said Colby Grant. “It encourages students to excel in both academic leadership with their peers.”
