National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society had their induction ceremony in the high school auditorium on Thursday, Oct. 17th where 30 juniors and 15 seniors were inducted into NHS while 26 juniors and 7 seniors were inducted into NTHS.
NHS sponsor Melissa Avery along with her officers led the first half of the candle ceremony. President Trenton Granberry, Vice President Hailee Latimer, Secretary Stacey Leon Salgado, and Historian Julia Mackenzie Ibarra explained the colors in the emblem as well as the motto and characteristics for joining NHS.
NTHS sponsor Jessica Otte led the second half of the ceremony with officers President Hailee Latimer, Vice President Trenton Granberry, Secretary Stacey Leon Salgado, Treasurer Elrick Bignell, and Historian Katelynn Carter who lit the character candles.
“It was a great honor to be inducted into NHS while being an officer for NTHS,” said Bignell. “It was challenging to juggle both at the ceremony, but I feel like it was a great experience that everyone should be a part of.”
National Technical Honor Society seniors will volunteer this Christmas at the Marine Corp Reserve to package gifts for children through the Toys For Tots foundation.
