On Friday, May 25th, Hoosac School celebrated the induction of three new members into the C. Francis Egan Chapter of the National Honor Society. Selin Oncul '19, Simon Delden '19 and Maren Lancaster '18 earned their membership to the society through the effective demonstration of the four qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Membership of the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. The Society was founded in 1921, its goal being to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy.
No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Honor Society strives to recognize the total student: one who excels in all of the aforementioned areas. Membership, however, is more than an honor. It incurs a responsibility and an obligation to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that resulted in each student's selection.
Our students continue to exemplify what it means to be high achievers. Despite the challenges and rigor which come with attending an elite, private school like Hoosac, these three students inducted have succeeded tremendously and have done so with grace. We are very excited to see what the final week of the school year has in store.
