The National Honors Society is based upon four principles: character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Students from the Junior and Senior grade levels are chosen based upon their GPA, how well they apply those four principles, and on their responsibility and academic evaluations.  The National Honors Society Induction is a ceremony for new members that are joining NHS. To be inducted as part of the National Honors Society is a great honor that comes with great responsibility.

The ceremony starts off with the opening and the Pledge of Allegiance. Brianna Betz, Secretary and Treasurer, then announces the role call of the current members. After the introduction reading, the five candles are lit. The candles are lit by Amanda Schaeffer, David Krammes, Nicholas Brown, Michaela Witherow, and Emily Debus. The lighting of the candles symbolizes the recognition of the four principles of National Honors Society. Next in the ceremony is the roll call for the new members and the presentation of their certificates. An oath then led by Trisha Kopinetz is spoken to officially induct the students. After the oath, Speaker LTC Stefanchik gives a speech on the dedication and hard work that these students have put in to be accepted into NHS. The ceremony ends and the newest members are now fully apart of the National Honors Society. “The new members are good students and have earned their spot in the National Honors Society,” NHS President, Trisha Kopinetz says about the inductees.

This is a big moment for the newest members of the National Honors Society. Being in NHS looks good on college applications and is one of the highest academic standards you can receive in high school. “Being in National Honors Society is one of my greatest achievements,” 2-year member, Ben Brosius, said. For many of the kids in the society, they feel the same.The kids selected represent the scholarly success of Pine Grove Area High School.
