Eighty-two Belmont High School (BHS) students were inducted into the National Honors Society (NHS) at a ceremony held at the high school on November 29.
Ashley Landry, NHS advisor, gave opening remarks, and speakers included BHS Principal Daniel Richards and faculty guest speaker English Teacher Roanne Bosch. Talking about the qualities of a National Honor Society student was NHS President Jessica Chen, Vice-President James Kitch, Secretary Wonyoung Jang, and Treasurer Emma Sass. There were also musical performances by the BHS Madrigals led by Choral Director Sean Landers and the BHS Chamber Orchestra conducted by Orchestra Director Margot Reavey.
Selection of students for membership is by a faculty council and is based on the criteria of “four pillars” students must demonstrate excellence in: scholarship, service, leadership and character, along with a qualifying cumulative grade point average. Once selected, members are required to continue to demonstrate these qualities through active involvement in school activities and community service and fulfill other responsibilities as outlined in the National Honor Society Constitution.
The National Honor Society began in 1921. The Society estimates that more than one million students participate in NHS activities, with chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada.
Congratulations to all the 2017-2018 Inductees.
