George Wilson ’14 – News
On November 5, juniors and seniors with a grade point average above a 3.5 who successfully completed their candidacy were inducted into Romeo High School’s Chapter of the National Honor Society. The ceremony was led by NHS president Jodie Bosheers (12). Each officer explained one of the four pillars of NHS (Leadership, Character, Service, Scholarship) and Principal Michael Kaufman led the inductees in the National Honor Society pledge. To close out the night and officially induct the new members, each inductee then signed the Chapter Register, which holds the names of past National Honor Society Members from the Romeo Chapter.
National Honor Society Students, who are inducted as juniors, are required to complete 50 hours of community service. Those admitted in their senior year must complete 25 by graduation. In addition to providing gifted students with ways to give back to the community, National Honor Society also offers opportunities to members when it comes to paying for college. NHS has provided its members with over $10 million in scholarship opportunities nationwide since the program’s inception in 1946.
New inductee Toni Lewis (12) is excited to be a part of the long-standing program.
“Its an honor and I’m excited for the new experience and what it brings. Its nice to be recognized and know all your hard work has paid off,” Lewis said.
Bosheers commended the hard work of the inductees, and encouraged them to devote their same energy going forward as National Honor Society Members.
“Inductions is all about bringing new members to our Chapter; each inductee brings a new energy to the service and leadership opportunities NHS takes part in throughout the community,” Bosheers said.
At the ceremony the inductees were reminded of the standards required as a NHS member. Romeo’s Chapter has been active throughout the community providing it’s service to multiple charitable purposes.
“Our Chapter is very active with multiple causes. We hold American Red Cross blood drives, are involved with hunger fighting organizations, have a Relay for Life team, put on Penny Wars during Charity Week, and tutor other students in the community,” Bosheers said. “Our focus is service and helping others. By helping others, you learn more about yourself and the world around you.”
