Last night, the National Honor Society hosted its annual banquet to honor new members and recognize returning members. In the NHS Induction Ceremony, this year’s officers talked about each of the qualities associated with membership in NHS: Character (Brandon Hall), Scholarship (Taylor Peebles), Leadership (Grace Holcombe), and Service (Chad Thomasson).
To be considered for members to NHS, students have to be a sophomore, junior, or senior, demonstrate the qualities of Leadership, Character, and Service, and maintain an 85 or greater cumulative average.
Sophomore members of NHS include: Temple Hendrickson, Matthew Melton, Kyla Morris, Gabe Purselley, Brooke Reynolds, Kelsie Richmond, Michelle Sanchez, Calie Spivey, Casie Spivey, Veronica Wheat, and Shelby White.
Junior Members of NHS include: Caitlynn Almond, Whitney Boerner, Libby Calvin, Kasey Lopez, Stormy Lucky, Jonathan Martin, Chloe Moore, Brittney Neitzel, Abra Roberts, Brittany Westbrook, and Kristina Woodruff.
Senior Members of NHS include: Makenzie Abbott, Carly Copeland, Savannah Hairl, Brandon Hall, Grace Holcombe, Solomon Jackson, Dane McAfee, Kelsey Ortiz, Taylor Peebles, Troy Saunders, Preston Schwartz, Chad Thomasson, Delaney Worth, and Mark Zimmerer.
