Montini Catholic's National Honor Society (St. Pope Paul VI Chapter) proudly inducted thirty-eight new student members on Wednesday, October 20th at the Lasallian high school's NHS Induction Ceremony for the 2021-22 school year.
Principal Kevin Beirne and NHS moderators, Michael Dailey and Estelle Soger were in attendance to congratulate the honored students. Thirty-seven (37) returning NHS members joined the inductees to celebrate the newest members and to renew their own commitments to the goals of the National Honor Society.
Montini Catholic National Honor Society members are the leaders of their class and represent the very qualities the society is built on - Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. Members are responsible for organizing and enlisting school participation in various events during the school year including the school's Golden Gobbler Thanksgiving Food Drive in November, their Adopt-A-Family Christmas Drive in December and the annual Blood Drive for Vitalant, held in January.
NHS officers led inductees in the Ceremony of Light and Pillars which explained the four pillars of success which are the basis for which Montini's chapter was founded upon and the characteristics that each member strives to emulate in their everyday lives.
The minimum requirement for membership in the Montini Catholic High School chapter of the NHS is a 3.75 cumulative GPA at the end of their sophomore year. All students achieving a 3.75 GPA at the end of their sophomore (or junior) year receive the opportunity to petition for membership in NHS. When applying, students are asked to detail their qualifications in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Students meeting all the requirements are then invited to become members in the NHS in the fall of their junior or senior year.
Once accepted into the NHS, students are required to maintain high scholastic standards, act as true leaders of the school and perform ten hours of community service each year (in addition to the service hours required for graduation (40).
