The National Honor Society (NHS) inducted three students on Thursday, March 15, 2012, at 6:30P.M. in the Keenan Lecture Hall.

The NHS recognizes students who show strong leadership skills and service projects ability.

“It felt like an achievement, wonderful, [like a] great experience,” Senior Courtney Wallace said.

The requirements to get into NHS are a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.5, and then the teachers look into a student’s character, service and leadership skills.

“It feels good to see all of the hard work and studying pay off,” Senior Taliaferro Robinson-Heyward said.

The NHS holds two induction ceremonies, one in the fall and one in the spring; it gives Seniors a chance who are already not members and weren’t inducted in the fall to be inducted in the spring before graduation.

“It feels like a weight being lifted off my shoulders,” Senior Brandon Smalls said.

The Seniors who were inducted felt like this was the last chance to be a part of a society that recognizes students for their hard work and dedication.
