Over 120 Inducted into NHS from Class of 2022, Class of 2023


Staff Writer, Advanced Journalism

Father Jordan led the mass, Doctora struggled to light candles, crowds of family and friends filled the auditorium and over 120 juniors and seniors gave the pledge as newly inducted members of the National Honor Society.

Tuesday night’s induction ceremony was anything but the usual.  The only thing usual:   the struggles to light the candles that signify NHS pillars, the guiding principles for NHS membership. For some reason, candles don’t like to be lit when hundreds of people are watching.

Typically the ceremony occurs in the chapel, and typically one class of inductees says the NHS pledge, picks up certificates, and shakes hands with the principal and president. 

Thanks to Covid, 64 members of the Class of 2022 and 59 members of the Class of 2023 became official members of NHS for their scholastic achievements, their service efforts and their exemplary character.

NHS adviser Diane Mulroney organized and hosted the event.  Assisting with the “pillar presentation” were the four NHS officers from the Class of 22–Skylar Schultz, Abby Haase, Nicholas Massabni and Sophie Hornberger.
