Are a dynamic group of students that hail from all over the state. Some of them have to get on the bus at 4:45 in the morning to get to school on time. Our students are dual enrolled at the college that our campus is located on.
Not only do our students maintain the required Cumulative GPA in their high school courses, they must also do so in their college classes to be inducted and remain in the National Honor Society.
Our students excel in the classroom as well as in their communities. They exemplify the four pillars of National Honor Society: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character.
We are trying to replace all of the regular candles in the National Honor Society Induction with safer flameless candles. This will allow us to maintain a traditional ceremony while increasing the overall safety of the participants and observers.
The flaming torch is the emblem of our purpose; to bear forward the searching light of truth, to lead that others may follow in the light and to serve those purposes symbolized in the torch.
These words come directly from the National Honor Society Induction speech. For this reason, the candles have been included in the Induction Ceremony.
We are a young club and the cost of replacing the candles would prove to be difficult and would take away funding for other service projects for our community.
