51 ACHS students recognized at National Honor Society induction

More than 50 sophomores, juniors, and seniors at Adair County High School were officially inducted into the National Honor Society Thursday night, Nov. 17, 2016, in the school's cafeteria. To qualify, students must display high character, leadership skills, and volunteerism, all while maintaining a grade point average of at least 3.8.

"This is an opportunity to recognize these kids for their academic achievements and the hard work that goes into that," says NHS sponsor Sheila Willis. "I'm especially proud of our officers because this is a completely student-led event. They put the whole thing together."

NHS Chapter President Linsey Grant offered the opening remarks before turning the microphone over to the night's guest speaker, math teacher and former NHS member Fred Warren. Warren talked about his experience in the organization and how the principles of volunteerism are still with him years later. He encouraged the students to embrace the service requirements for membership and to use the experience as an opportunity for personal growth.

After Warren's speech, Grant - along with fellow officers Chloe Hixson, Jennifer Caldwell, and Emery Bosela - shared the four tenants of the organization: character, scholarship, service, and leadership. All inductees then recited the NHS pledge before being introduced individually. Hixson gave a few final words before the event concluded with a reception in the cafeteria.

Willis expresses gratitude to all the students and parents who attended the ceremony, and also offers thanks to the high school's maintenance and janitorial staff for their help setting up the cafeteria for the event. "It's a huge job to move everything out of that cafeteria and make it suitable for a program like this," Willis says. "That's on top of everything else they do, so we really appreciate it. They helped make this a successful night."
