The Easton High School J. Willard Davis Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) held an induction of 28 new members on April 13, 2023. This was the second NHS induction for the chapter during the current school year. Ms. Katherine Curry, Easton High Social Studies teacher, was the guest speaker.
NHS is a national organization established in 1921, which recognizes students who have demonstrated excellence in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. To be considered for induction into the National Honor Society, students must meet minimum criteria, which include a cumulative GPA equal to or greater than 86.5%, cumulative attendance rate equal to or greater than 94%, no more than 2 disciplinary referrals, and completion of at least 100 service learning hours. Qualifying students are given the opportunity to submit applications and recommendations, which are reviewed by Easton High School faculty.
“Our National Honor Society represents our greatest scholars, our greatest athletes, those who serve our community, and those who make our world a better place,” Mrs. Curry said. “Today, I challenge you all to consider the responsibility that comes with being members of this wonderful organization. You must continue to show up for your school, your classmates, your community, yourself. What that looks like is going to be up to you.”
