(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS National Honors Society (NHS) held its annual induction Wednesday night at Lakewood Ranch High School.
Family members and supporters filed in starting at 5 p.m. to snag prime seating before the event began an hour later.
Incoming members filed into their seats in the auditorium, the lights dimmed and the ceremony kicked off with an opening speech from President Riley Knutson before new inductees were called by name up to the stage to be congratulated and congregate on the provided risers.
The ceremony featured each officer of National Honors Society as they gave short speeches on the value of the four pillars of NHS, namely scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Featured speaker was LRHS assistant principal Mike Mullen who delivered words of wisdom to the new inductees and encouraged them to keep reaching high but remember enjoy the “right now.”
Around 100 new members were inducted and all exhibited high hopes for the 2017-2018 NHS year.
“I plan on working hard to maintain my hours and achieving more than the expected 10 hours; my hope is to become a valued member of the club,” said LRHS new junior member Isis Madden.
The LRHS chapter of the NHS has a new pool of members in addition to some new officers, scheduled to be elected in the next two months.
