McNicholas inducts 49 National Honor Society members

McNicholas High School celebrated students achieving their academic best by inducting 49 new members into the Altiora Chapter of National Honor Society on Thursday, Dec. 7. 

The National Honor Society recognizes the achievements of junior and senior students who excel academically and fill leadership roles in the school and community. Students must maintain a 90 average and must submit to an application process that assesses a student’s scholarship, leadership, character, and commitment to service. 

Mrs. Mary Beth Sandmann, theology teachers and Director of Mission and Ministry, was invited to speak at the induction. She addressed the students, saying, “You have made many decisions to get to this place today and you will make many more that will shape your future and define your character. As you continue this lifelong journey to develop your character and grow toward Full Stature in Christ, remember the unique gift that you are and that you have so much to give to this world.”  

NHS members tutor students in the McNicholas community and complete service projects that benefit the community beyond McNicholas. Upcoming service projects for this year include blanket making, holding a book drive, volunteering at an animal shelter, and cleaning a military cemetery.  

Mrs. Sandmann reminded students that, "This is an honor that is well-deserved, but it is also a responsibility. Through this induction, you are also committing to continue to live out the pillars of Leadership, Service, Scholarship, and Character as you go out into the world.”  

Senior Officers Annmarie Duffy, Grace Fechtel, Remington Holder, and Joseph Thomas, along with co-advisors Mrs. Chelsea Almer and Mrs. Renee Herndon, proudly welcome these 49 new members:
