National Honors Society Inducts New Members

Murray, Ne.- Recently, families and friends gathered in the commons to celebrate the newly inducted National Honor Society members. Students ranging from sophomores to juniors got to write their signatures into the chapter registry and have a photo op to celebrate their new scholastic achievement.

The purpose of the National Honor Society (NHS) is to promote leadership qualities and community involvement among students. In order to become a member of the NHS, students must meet the requirements of: an cumulative GPA of 92% or above and submit an application stating their qualifications. The students’ applications are then voted on by a committee of faculty members and a majority vote from the faculty committee means an entry into the society.

There were an astonishing 20 members inducted into the NHS this year compared to last year’s 9. It was a tough decision to choose who to accept into the NHS because of the number of qualified applicants.

This is obviously a great group of students and they will continue to bring success and prosperity to our school through their engagement in the four pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
