November 10Th, 2011 NHS students and staff members gathered together to celebrate the ceremony of being officially inducted in to National Honors Society. The night was filled with joy and NHS students were ecstatic that this was their special night. Family and friends all came together to see this wonderful night and to have an amazing Italian dinner.
NHS stands for National Honors Society and this is a society and you have to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher to be in it. NHS also does volunteer work to help out the community. This is a huge opportunity to be in this for your junior and senior year because it looks really good on a college application, but not only that it shows that you were committed to do good and school and to stay in it both years. “I am very happy and excited for what we are going to do in NHS,” explains Justice Mitchell.
Invitations were sent out that stated the family was cordially invited to this ceremony and to go up and put an NHS pin on their shirt above their heart. After the ceremony families and staff members had the chance to sit at a beautiful table with a nice center piece and enjoy some Italian food. “Out of my family my mom, sister. and little brother came to support me at the Induction Ceremony,” said junior Jessica Vien.
National Honor Society is going to make each and every person in the society bond and learn new things about each other. The Induction Ceremony was wonderful. “The most memorable part about the whole night was saying the pledge and lighting the candles, because by doing that we committed ourselves to National Honors Society,” proclaimed Jessica.
NHS has a lot of meaning to the students that are in it and I believe that they all had a different time that they knew this was serious and was a huge deal. “I noticed that NHS was really important the night of the Induction ceremony when I was getting pinned and we lite the candle,” explains junior Francisco Aguilar. Students are now officially members of the NHS family and they hope to keep it that way till they graduate.
Most high school students would try so hard to be in this because it is such a good academic society to be in and it is really good and colleges would look at their college application over other people. “I know that I was chosen to be in NHS because I show a lot of effort academically, and in my character and many other things. Im am hoping to be in NHS next year as well,” proclaims Francisco.
Jefferson High NHS students were happy when they found out that they were chosen to be in this society, but even more excited when they found out that this was really good because colleges would look for this. National Honors Society will benefit every single one of the students because they will learn how to come together and help the community, bond with one another, and learn a lot of new things. “I know that this will benefit me in the future because this may help me get in to a good college and not only that it will teach me self discipline so that I have to keep my grades up in order to be in NHS my senior year,” explains junior Klarissa Vick.
Overall the night was wonderful and it was great to see everyone dress up and come together to join the National Honors Society as they got Inducted in to the society. The students were very happy and they are looking forward to what the future holds for them and to what great memories they are going to share.
