The Heritage Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society held its Spring Induction and Officer Installation on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. The NHS is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most prestigious student recognition program. The standards of membership include scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Four students were selected by the Faculty Council for completing their candidacy and meeting all the standards of membership; Alex, Meredith, Gabriela, and Aniruddh. Our current officers conducted the Induction Ceremony while each chairmen took a turn to describe their standard of membership.
In addition, the installation of the new officers for the 2015-2016 school year was also conducted. With a musical interlude by one of our talented middle school students, Amelie, we switched gears after the Induction Ceremony and conducted the Officer Installation. Several seniors acted as the Installing Officers for the ceremony. Each outgoing officer passed the candle to the new officer taking their position. Our new officers are: President: Will, Vice-President: Jasmine, Secretary: Santiago, Treasurer: Brett.
We closed with our Head of School, Mrs. Shoemaker, congratulating the new inductees and new officers. Amelie played a final musical piece as the NHS members took their leave. Many members of the Heritage Academy staff were on hand to celebrate with these new members on achieving this wonderful honor. Pictures and sentiments of congratulations were offered as we wrapped up the event at the Hilton Head Island Public Library and made our way to New York City Pizza to enjoy dinner. It was a fun evening spending time with these wonderful students who demonstrate every day why they are a part of this prestigious organization.
