On the evening of Wednesday, March, 8th, the Midlothian High School auditorium flooded with students, parents, and teachers alike to celebrate the induction of over 100 academically stellar students, the biggest induction in the school’s history. This year, National Honor Society inducted 157 juniors and seniors who display academic excellence throughout all aspects of their high school careers. Previously inducted members sat in attendance as well and supported the newly inducted members, along with parents and faculty.
The event began with a speech from Principal Shawn Abel, followed by a performance by the Chamber Ensemble. National Honor Society President Adrienne Preston kicked off a series of explanations about the society’s core values and principles. The NHS council consists of: Vice President Mackenzie Fuller, Secretary Katherine Wrobleski, Historian Hannah Hodgens, and Treasurer Sean Dudley. Service, Leadership, Scholarship, and Character make up the core values and expectations of the National Honor Society.
Once the speeches commenced, Adrienne Preston read the names of the newly inducted students, starting at the beginning of the alphabet. Veteran members handed roses to the new inductees as they made their way to the stage. After shaking Mr. Abel’s hand and receiving their certificates, they stood in order on the stage steps. After all members were called, they recited the society pledge and promised to uphold the ideals of the National Honor Society. Junior Caroline Hopper said, “I felt very accomplished to achieve this honor.”
A reception followed in the open commons with cake and treats, as all the newly inducted members mingled and posed for photos. Senior Emily Junkmann said, “It was exciting welcoming all the fresh, young faces into the society, as well as getting a different perspective of the event, as I was inducted during my junior year.” All in all, the event ran smoothly, and students enjoyed the celebration. Congratulations to all of the new member of the National Honor Society!
