LHS welcomes 85 new NHS members
February 11, 2013
The Lakewood High School chapter of the National Honor Society welcomed 85 standout students into its ranks at its annual induction ceremony held Feb. 7 at the Civic Auditorium. Entrance into NHS is the highest honor a school can bestow on a student.
Besides academic excellence (candidates must have a cumulative 3.5 GPA) a student is evaluated on character, leadership skills and dedication to service plus involvment in school activities. Chosen by a five-member faculty panel, members must be in their junior or senior years.
NHS officers – President Sam Aprile, Vice President Peter Quigley, Secretary Bea Aldrich and Treasurer Alex Northrop – each spoke about one of the four components of a National Honor Society student: character, scholarship, leadership and service. Lakewood City Schools Communications & PR Specialist Christine Gordillo, an LHS grad, was the guest speaker.
Following, the speeches, the newest NHS members were escorted across the stage to receive their NHS pin by one of the club’s 53 two-year members.
