2nd NHS Induction Ceremony at McKee
Here we are at the 2nd induction ceremony of the National Honor Society at McKee High School. The ceremony was at 1 PM on May 27, 2010. Carol Starkey, the new Coordinator of Student Activities (COSA). There was also assistance from Meryl Sheridan, our Forensics Science teacher who ensured that the students lined up and put their best foot forward. Darren Hoffman trained the Executive Board of the National Honor Society also served as the color guard for the event.
It is so cool when the students light the candle indicating that they now plan to uphold the principles of the National Honor Society: Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Community Service.
Another neat point about the National Honor Society is that the students have to maintain and hopefully surpass their averages and other service aspects to stay in the organization. In my second year as principal, I thought I had an appreciation of what the words meant in the oath taken by the students, along with the rules and regulations as outlined by the National Honor Society. In my third year, I gained a new appreciation. I must say that this is a ceremony that will increase in resonance, for the students, parents, and for yours truly.
