A ceremony was held at Easton High School to induct four seniors and five juniors into The J. Willard Davis Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS). NHS is a national organization established in 1921, which serves to recognize students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of 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. The Fall 2019 NHS inductees are as follows: Seniors – Joseph Hickey, Tucker Hussnatter, Emma Poole, Taylan Wilson; Juniors – Samuel Bishop, Isaac Dressler, Bree Haufe, Andrew Ni, Tyler Redman.
The induction ceremony included the lighting of the Knowledge Candle and the presentation of the Four Qualities of the National Honor Society by chapter officers. This was followed by the reciting of the NHS Pledge by all current and newly inducted members. English Teacher Shelby Swann serves as Easton High School’s National Honor Society Faculty Advisor.
