On Monday, March 19, the Nevada High School National Honor Society inducted 23 students into the chapter. In order to be inducted into the National Honor Society, the student must be a sophomore, junior or senior. In addition, a 3.0 GPA is required, and each candidate is voted upon by the faculty. The faculty reviews each student’s application based upon citizenship, service, leadership, character and scholarship. The compiled faculty vote and materials are then scrutinized by a final faculty committee.
NHS President Mackenzie Garrett presided over the event, assisted by fellow officers — Vice President Logan Stufflebeam, Secretary Luke Fevold and Treasurer Malachi Hornbuckle. Each inductee was introduced by a current member and presented with their certificate, a yellow rose and a membership card with NHS pin.
Nevada High School principal Kody Asmus provided some remarks on the merits of what NHS stands for and how the students should embrace others and cherish the values of the NHS. After the ceremony, refreshments included cakes made by Lori Trygstad and a fruit-sherbet punch made by Chris Lloyd. Students, faculty, parents and friends then enjoyed each other’s company and many photographs were taken. Nevada High School National Honor Society Faculty advisor is Kevin Cooper
