NHS inductees pledge to community service organization


National Honor Society is an organization where students are recognized for their excellence in academics, community service and character. The NHS induction ceremony was held in the theater on Feb. 13 with 21 new inductees. As a new member to the organization, they are expected to follow the mission statement.

“Show character, leadership and service throughout the participation in our club and community activities to maintain good grades and enjoy the activities within the club,” said vice president Etienne Bridell.

The new inductees even included current seniors to the organization. Into the second semester, they were granted to join to help support from other organizations; plus, their chance to finally join and represent NHS.

“Mrs. Maya needed more student council kids to represent NHS,” senior Vania Gonzalez said. “I felt so relieved because I always wanted to be in it, but never knew how to join—until this year.”

New members left the ceremony with a dedication to the upcoming year. The spot encourages the inductees to be more involved in school by meeting other members, the willing to work hard and experience new opportunities.

“It’s a welcoming and positive environment,” junior Melody Medina said. “It’s going to be a lot of hard work for the upcoming year, but I’m willing to work hard and succeed with everyone.”
