Last week, one hundred and seventy-three juniors were inducted into City High’s chapter of the National Honors Society. This is the largest group of students guidance counselor and chapter leader Ms. Hoel has ever inducted. 

The ceremony began at 7:00 pm with a performance of Mozart from the City High String Quartet, and was followed by keynote speaker, Language Arts teacher Ms. Fettweis. The candle lighting induction ceremony was performed by three City High Senior National Honor Society Members demonstrating the principles of NHS; honor, scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Students were presented and a reception immediately followed in the cafeteria to congratulate the new inductees.

Gabe Baird ‘21 was one of the students inducted. 

“Being inducted into the National Honors Society has been an achievement that I have been working towards my entire highschool career,” said Baird. “I’m really proud of my hard work and my peers’ hard work.”

To be eligible to be inducted into the National Honors Society, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.500 by the end of their first trimester of junior year. Students must also have or will have completed three years of Language Arts, Math, Science, and two years of World Language by the end of their junior year.
