Seven new members were inducted into the Frenchman Valley chapter of National Honor Society Wednesday, Dec. 12. The ceremony took place in the afternoon with students, faculty and family members in attendance.
The local chapter sponsor, Shari Goodenberger, began the ceremony by explaining that the National Honor Society was founded in 1921 by Edward Rynerson. She explained, “his dream was to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while developing other characteristics essential to citizens regarding democracy, leadership, scholarship, character and community service.”
The four cardinal principles of the organization are character, scholarship, leadership and service.
She went on to say that NHS now has over a million members and more than 23,000 chapters throughout the United States.
Goodenberger said the members and new inductees into the Frenchman Valley chapter, “can take pride in being part of the nation’s largest and oldest school-based student recognition program.”
Current members of the local NHS chapter include: Jack McGraw, President; Logan Bischoff, Vice President; Cassidy Rathe, Secretary/Treasurer; Jake Maris; Wes Anderjaska; Brooklyn Nordhausen; Tailor Lee; Hayden Pollmann; Jasmyn Smith; Emma Skelton and Tayler Nordhausen.
The NHS inductees included: Abbie Fanning; Landon Jutten; Leiauna Alberts; Sydnee Harchelroad; Hannah Nordhausen; Christi Christner and Nicole Strand.
