The National Honors Society (NHS) is initiating its next class of academic achievers on Nov. 14. The organization recruits students who maintain a 3.6 GPA and contribute a minimum of 15 service hours to the community.

The NHS initiation ceremony abounds with roses, celebratory candles, and short speeches from inductees to acknowledge a non-familial person who helped assist them in their success.

Their chosen mentors are known as sponsors. A sponsor is a person who can attest to a prospective inductee’s growth in one or more of NHS’ core pillars: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service.

Junior Ryan Pandilidis chose Mr. Matthew Hahn as his NHS sponsor.

“In Mr. Hahn’s class, I feel like I learn useful and impactful things. He truly helped sparked my interest in engineering,” Vandilidis said.

The organization is lead by five impassioned senior officers: Jodie Lawson (President), Kate Macnamara-Marsland (Vice President), Ashwin Chidambaram (Treasurer), Rishav Dasgupta (Secretary), and Anita Pan (Communications).

These five leaders are responsible for managing the club and putting the induction event together.
