New NHS inductees, parents, and teachers gathered in the auditorium on the night of April 27 for the induction ceremony.

After going through the application process, a national premier organization welcomes new members.

On April 27, the National Honor Society (NHS) inductees and their parents were invited to the induction ceremony held in the auditorium. Out of the 204 students that were qualified to apply based on their GPA, 100 new members were selected based on their academic record, volunteer work, and extracurricular activities.

“It was an outstanding class,” said NHS sponsor Amy Harrell.  “They have great volunteer work, stellar academic records, and they’re just really a nice group of kids.”

Being honored with membership into this organization requires not only continued diligence as a student, but also countless hours of school and community involvement.

According to the NHS website, “More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.”

Stephanie Gordon from the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia was the guest speaker.  Gordon challenged the new inductees to continue their hard work within the school and the community.

“Do the best you you can do,” said Gordon.
