Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School welcomed 67 new members into The National Honor Society on Tuesday, Oct. 25.
The induction ceremony was steeped in tradition. Guest speaker David Baumwoll, ‘02, reflected on his experiences at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School and on establishing the well-known club, Student Movement Against Cancer (SMAC).
“You’re not too young to do something big,” Baumwoll advised. “Age doesn’t matter.”
This year’s NHS cabinet spoke about the pillars of the Society. President Max Mazursky tackled scholarship; vice president Christina Lamagna highlighted the motivations behind service; secretary Alexandria Hudak discussed leadership; and treasurer Grace Lama explained the importance of character.
Finally, the inductees received their pins and recited the oath to uphold the ideals outlined in the National Honor Society pledge.
The new inductees all acquired a minimum 3.75 GPA and are required to maintain that GPA along with continuing charity work and demonstrating continued leadership.
Advisers Lauren DeNicola and Matthew Ritter returned for their second year overseeing NHS.
Congratulations to the new inductees!
