CHS Holds National Honor Society Induction
The National Honor Society hosted an Induction Ceremony for its new members on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. Forty-two students were honored at this event and became official new members of this prestigious society. Over one hundred students applied. Those who were accepted were selected based on their academic excellence and their ability to satisfy the four core principles of the society: character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
The event took place in the CHS auditorium, where Principal Kim Warr spoke and congratulated the newest members. The ceremony was planned by the National Honor Society advisors, Ms. Marissa Cominotti and Ms. Jennifer Wells-Lewis. The event began by the traditional candle lighting by the club officers. After, the new members’ names were called, and they received their official document inducting them into the society.
“By being inducted into NHS, it meant that we all satisfied the ideals for a NHS member. It showed that we are all leaders; not only on our campus, but in our community as well. It is important for us to serve our school, but this club allows us to go beyond just the school level, which is where the real impact is made,” said newly inducted junior, Erin Kelly.
Inducted members must maintain a weighted GPA of 4.0, complete at least 1 honors or AP level course during the years they are members, and continue to have at least 16 hours of community service per semester.
