National Honor Society Inductees 2018

National Honor Society Inductees 2018

Ninety-three Belmont High School (BHS) students were inducted into the National Honor Society (NHS) at a ceremony held at the high school on November 28.

Ashley Landry, NHS advisor, gave opening remarks, and speakers included BHS Interim Principal Thomas Brow and faculty guest speaker BHS science teacher Mark Abruzzese. NHS President Audrey Quinn, Vice-President David Hwang, Secretary Mayura Thomas, and Treasurer Tess Jenkins spoke about the attributes of a National Honor Society student. 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 2018 inductees:
