Last Thursday, Roseville High School held an induction ceremony for students in National Honors Society. Students can apply to join NHS as a way to acknowledge and encourage strong academics and community service.
This year’s 16 candidates kicked off their time in NHS in the formal induction ceremony yesterday. The ceremony included speeches from principal Nicholas Richter, NHS advisor Cari Oberreuter, and president Elena Bateman.
According to Oberreuter, RHS previously hosted a chapter of NHS. She wanted to revive it to acknowledge the time students put into their academics and community.
“The applications actually went to a faculty committee and they reviewed all of the inductees tonight for scholarship, leadership, character and service,” Oberreuter said. “They had to meet all of those requirements in an exemplary way to be inducted.”
Students dressed in formal attire and participated in a formal rose ceremony in which each received a certificate and a rose. Sophomore NHS recipient Rebecca Tepleton hopes they will see the benefits of NHS in the months to come.
“I decided to join National Honors Society because I thought it would open more options and I think it would be good to help the community,” Tepleton said.
