In late October, 38 students from North Springs were inducted into the school’s chapter of National Honors Society. To get into the National Honors Society, students must have a 94.0 weighted average, and then to maintain membership in the club, students must be leaders in their community and in their school environment. National Honors Society members’ are supposed to have four distinct qualities that are standards across all chapters of the society. They include scholarship, leadership, service, and character, and all members are supposed to be models to the school by exemplifying these characteristics.
According to NHS chapter adviser, AP Chemistry and science teacher, Karen Allsteadt, “all inductees have achieved a 94 grade point average to be eligible for membership and serve as leaders and volunteers throughout our school, the community and in many personal endeavors; many are peer tutors, student ambassadors, mentors and interns. Students are also expected to contribute community service hours after becoming members.”
A quick induction ceremony happened on October 29th, with remarks from both principal Dr. Ruiz and the president of the North Springs Chapter, Juliana Abel. At the end, students were called up on the stage where they were officially inducted into the North Springs chapter, and received a pin. “I am honored to be considered a top scholar at our school, and I am really proud of all of the new inductees,” commented junior Mandy Peskin, an inductee.
“We are proud of their accomplishments and welcome our new members, who bring new energy in support of our continuing work as NHS members,” concluded Chapter president Juliana Abel.
