March 1st began a new month and a new opportunity for students to serve their community. The induction ceremony happens annually in the spring and is a formal ceremony that welcomes new students into the National Honor Society (NHS).
Mrs. Caddow opened the meeting with words of encouragement and blessing and then she prayed for their time. Co-Vice President Shane Sypher rolled out the spring service project to the group. Co-Vice President Eli Miller walked the group through upcoming opportunities to earn service hours. Mrs. Black, NHS Advisor, led members in their pledge and said she is looking forward to a great spring semester. NHS president Arianna Laolagi helped hand out certificates to the new inductees.
In order to be an NHS member, students go through a rigorous application process, including writing essays, detailing past community service and leadership experience, and obtaining letters of recommendation.
The requirements and expectations of an NHS member are outlined in the application process in the form of four pillars: scholarship, character, leadership and service. Students who aspire to be members of NHS are prepared to live up to those pillars. At the induction ceremony, each of the four pillars is reviewed by a leadership team member.
As is true of most meetings at Trinity, food is involved and this meeting ended with donuts!
