This Tuesday, King’s High School inducted members of the Junior and Senior classes into the National Honor Society. To be inducted into this society, students must be selected as a candidate by their chapter’s faculty council.
The National Honor Society is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most prestigious student recognition program and serves to recognize students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character.
Scholarship denotes a commitment to learning. Service is a willingness to work for the benefit of those in need. Leadership is shown when students strive to train and aid others to reach their common goals of success. Character is the product of constant thought and action, by demonstrating such qualities as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.
Led by Mrs. Parnell and Mrs. Nield, the ceremony was a celebration and indication of the continuing emphasis on excellence that each student represents for our school and community.
