National Honors Society (NHS) held an induction ceremony to swear in 65 new members, sophomores and juniors who went through an application process reviewing grades, community service and teachers’ letters of recommendations today, April 18.
NHS advisor and Spanish teacher Terri Salsman-Rodriguex welcomed students, parents and members of NHS with a speech about scholarship and community service. This year’s ceremony was themed after Harry Potter and various speeches throughout the evening echoed Harry and the four houses at Hogwarts.
Many students look forward to taking part in service within their community, which ranges from participating in beach cleanups, to helping in classrooms, to volunteering at school sporting events.
“I really like the fact I get to do community service hours with my friends instead of just doing them alone,” junior Jenna Gavenman said.
