National Honor Society’s new inductees (L to R): Maia Ginther, Kaitlyn Cummings, Alex Raymond, Monique Edward and Lena Crum
On Friday, November 1, five Gifft Hill School students were inducted into the prestigious National Honors Society.
GHS Interim Head of School Beth Knight, along with NHS Faculty Advisor Mary Willen and members Luca del Olmo and Alex Ray led the ceremony outside of the school’s Upper Campus.
NHS, which dates to 1921, is the country’s premier organization which recognizes outstanding high school and middle school students.
“More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character,” according to the website www.nhs.us. “Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada.”
“Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service,” according to the website.
Inducted into GHS’ NHS last week were Maia Ginther, Kaitlyn Cummings, Alex Raymond, Monique Edward and Lena Crum.
