Congratulations to the recent Class of 2020 National Honor Society Inductees!
On Wednesday, Dec. 19, 23 students from Lansing High School received the honor of being inducted into the LHS chapter of the NHS. The NHS is a nationwide organization for high school students across the United States. Students are selected for induction into the NHS based on the four pillars of the NHS -- character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Being inducted into NHS is a great accomplishment for our students at LHS!
“NHS is an organization whose focus is on service to the community,” said the NHS Faculty Advisor Amanda Zerilli. “Although it is indeed an honor to be a member, NHS members' focus is on helping support and improve their school and community.”
Students wishing to be inducted into NHS must have a cumulative average of 90 and above. In addition to this, they are required to submit a candidate form, showcasing how they meet the NHS standards for scholarship, character, leadership, and service. While prior community service is a requirement for candidates, students must also complete 20 hours of community service each year with NHS as well.
"We are extremely proud of this year's inductees,” said LHS Principal Colleen Ledley. “They have demonstrated extraordinary scholarship, leadership, service, and character. We look forward to their contributions to our NHS organization."
Audience members for the night included family, friends, and current NHS officers, as well as current NHS members from LHS and NHS Faculty Advisor Amanda Zerilli. Once again this year, current NHS members were responsible for organizing the induction ceremony for their peers.
“One of the pillars of NHS is leadership,” said Ms. Zerilli. “It is therefore important that NHS events, such as induction and meetings, be student driven. The current senior NHS members were able to put their leadership skills to work last night by organizing and running an event that was meaningful to them and that put the focus what NHS is all about: namely service to others.”
Great job to current NHS members on organizing a successful induction ceremony! Congratulations to the Class of 2020 NHS Inductees!
