Scholarship, service, leadership and character exhibited throughout school and the community led several South Seneca students to become inducted into the high school’s chapter of the National Honor Society.
A recent ceremony was held in the high school auditorium where Principal Tim Houseknecht said he was impressed with the 12 inductees’ attitude, school spirit and academic accomplishments that prepared them for the special honor. Current NHS President Cameron Vanselow welcomed guests and other NHS members explained the significance of the group’s emblem, torch and the four aforementioned wardens in a candlelight ceremony.
Guest speaker and social studies teacher Felicia Woodard offered inductees words of inspiration, as she spoke about the power of education and using skills gained at South Seneca to change the world and serve with humility.
Together, new and 2016-2017 members recited the NHS oath before closing remarks were offered by Kimberly deCoudres, NHS coordinator and English teacher.
The new members announced are: Kyra Brewer, Hunter Denmark, Seth Denmark, Avrielle Fletcher, Nikole Herndon, Madelyn Houck, Julia Hubbard, Olivia Kampnich, Heidi Langley, Annabelle MacIntosh, Brianna McCoy and Madison Welch.
