2024 National Honor Society Ceremony


On Feb. 29, CHS inducted its newest class of National Honor Society (NHS) members. To qualify for induction to NHS at CHS, students have to obtain a minimum 3.5 GPA that demonstrates strong academic performance.

The ceremony was held in the auditorium at Forsythe Middle School, where guests were welcomed by a jazz ensemble consisting of CHS students. The event was hosted by Brian Williams, CHS counselor, Dean Marci, and guest speaker Tracy Anderson, CHS teacher.

The ceremony centered around the four pillars of NHS: leadership, embracing the responsibility of shaping the academic community; service, advocating for students to perform selfless acts that contribute to a better world; character, demonstrating consistent commitment to ethical and compassionate decision-making that impacts oneself and others; and scholarship, requiring a continuous effort to contribute to the world through one’s knowledge, skills, and experiences.

The ceremony started with Marci and Willams introducing NHS and its significance within CHS. Following the introduction, Anderson delivered a speech to encourage students to stay curious and take on challenges drawing from her experience. Subsequently, four student speakers walked onto the stage and informed the incoming NHS members about the four pillars of NHS. Lastly, all eligible students stepped forward to receive their NHS membership certificates.

After the ceremony, students enjoyed snacks offered by the organization. Many new members felt excited and appreciated this opportunity to join CHS NHS.

“I feel ecstatic after the induction,” said Andrew Rooks, CHS sophomore. ”It’s a very amazing opportunity filled with a lot of great people. I’m going to work hard to stay in the NHS.”

NHS offers service-oriented projects to eligible students, from volunteering opportunities to library tutoring. These initiatives benefit the community but also recognize the academic excellence of the students. CHS will continue to offer these opportunities to students who demonstrate traits of leadership, character, service and scholarship.
