National Honor Society inducts new members in annual ceremony


The National Honor Society (NHS) had its annual induction ceremony on Mar.16.

Acceptance into NHS is no easy feat. Along with solid academics, leadership and extracurriculars, character is also important.

“Acceptance into NHS is difficult because it recognizes students who demonstrate all of the following: leadership, community service and character. Some students may be wonderful leaders in their school or sports teams but lack in service or vice versa,” said new member, sophomore Angela Wong.

Students can apply beginning in their sophomore year. If they are not admitted into NHS the first time, they are able to apply again the following year.

“This is my third time applying to NHS. I think that after trying for the past two years, I decided to take on more leadership roles, ensuring that my first and last impressions on those who surround me have an everlasting, positive impact,” said new member, senior Connie Wu.

“I look forward to representing my school and family as a National Honor Society student. I hope that this organization will help me to develop my skills of leadership, service and character by further extending them beyond the familiar school walls and into the outside community,” said Wong.

Members in NHS are required to help at school events as part of their commitment to service.

Along with a commitment to service, good character is necessary; Being of good character does not only entail what is seen in school but also how one acts out of school.

“Through NHS, I believe that I will become a harder worker than I was before and continue to challenge myself in school and life. I hope that NHS will give me the confidence I need to try to reach for higher places and give me the energy boost to continue to be involved in school activities,” said new member, sophomore Siman Zhang.
