National Honor Society inducts new members


After a delicious pasta bar dinner, the Northeast Bradford Chapter of the National Honor Society held their annual induction ceremony for 25 new members. Olivia Mast welcomed those in attendance, while Abigail Goble gave a history of the organization which included requirements for acceptance. The four pillars of the Society, Service, Scholarship, Leadership, and Character were explained by Jenna Saxe, Caleb Uhouse, Madisyn Bolinger, and Jordan Shumway, respectively.

A highlight of the evening was welcoming Davis Young, NEB Class of 2012, back to the district to discuss how NHS helped mold his future after high school. Davis currently is a physician assistant in Apalachin and emphasized the need to study for success and to give back to the community as an adult. Each new inductee was recognized by receiving a certificate of membership and signing the NHS registrar as President Madisyn Bolinger read who inspired each new member.

NHS adviser Matthew Fearnley led the pledge for the new inductees while offering remarks about the character of the organization while he has taught mathematics at Northeast Bradford. The night concluded with Superintendent William Clark encouraging the student to have grit and determination in whatever they do. Fifty-seven members now comprise the Northeast Bradford Chapter of the National Honor Society.
