HOPE – New members of the Hope High School chapter of the National Honor Society were congratulated for their contribution to excellence at HHS and challenged to take that accomplishment into their future Wednesday.
HHS Principal Bill Hoglund gave the congratulatory address to the 20 inductees in socially-distanced and masked ceremonies in the HHS auditorium.
Hoglund used the COVID-19 pandemic to encourage the students to establish themselves as individuals and leaders through the remainder of their high school tenure.
“Find your place, find your passion, find your purpose,” he said.
Presentation of the Four Pillars of National Honor Society was conducted by Jaci Johnson, Scholarship; Kristina King, Service; Ke’Ara Key, Leadership; and Ashanti Phillips, Character. The inductees were called to the stage where each enrolled their name in the membership ledger of the chapter and the NHS Pledge was administered to the new class.
