NHS Induction Ceremony Held Virtually This Year


By Max Brewer and Chase Pray

The National Honor Society (NHS) induction this year will be a little different then what upperclassmen might remember from previous years. The major difference compared to past years’ induction ceremonies is that the induction ceremony will be live streamed via fhntoday.com on April 27 at 7pm.

“137 sophomores and juniors are being inducted this year,” NHS Sponsor Angie Mason said.  “Normally, we have a little over 100. This is due to the fact that students have not taken final exams for two years.” 

NHS invites any student with a 3.75 or higher GPA and recognizes them for their academic achievements.  

“I’m excited to induct the new inductees and to get to know them,” Senior President Riya Contractor said. “This is my big thing as senior president and I’m excited to get to pass it onto the Juniors.”

At the ceremony, there will be many different speakers to welcome the new members. Dr. Nathan Hostetler will be giving the opening and closing remarks, and the senior officers will be speaking about the history and characteristics of NHS. There are many in person traditions that will not be conducted this year. This includes signing the book, which will not be able to be done due to the virtual induction. In-Person Students will have to come in Wednesday to sign the book and pick up their certificates, and Virtual Students will have to pick up their certificates in the attendance office and sign the book next year.

“I’m looking forward to seeing everyone attend online and I can’t wait to see how it ends up,” Mason said.
