New Inductees for the SPF Chapter of the National Honor Society


Rob Fisher

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 89 new members this past Tuesday evening.
Inductees are required to have at least a 3.75 GPA and maintain that GPA throughout their high school experience as well as do acts of service and leadership to be accepted into NHS.
The ceremony began with a speech from guest speaker Cynthia Pfirrmann, who gave the students advice to keep being excellent members of society and to keep exemplifying the key traits of the NHS- Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character.
These characteristics were a key component of the next phase of the ceremony as well. The members of this year’s NHS cabinet each spoke about the importance of each trait. President Briana McGowan spoke about scholarship, vice-president Danielle Glickstein discussed service, secretary Daniella Cohen talked about leadership, and treasurer Pauline Bayotas tackled character.
Following these speeches, the new members were officially inducted into the NHS by principal David Heisey and veteran advisors Lauren DeNicola and Matthew Ritter.
“It feels quite nice [to be inducted],” explained inductee John Huby. “I think it will help me get scholarships to college and I’ll be able to better able to lead and help my peers.”
Congratulations to all of the new members of National Honor Society!
