On October 26, Haddonfield Memorial High School’s chapter of the National Honor Society inducted its new scholars into the program led by Co-Advisors Mrs. Fingerman and Mrs. Pracher. In a well-planned ceremony featuring a performance by the Madrigals, speeches by the advisors, current officers, and Nancy Motolese, a former teacher, over eighty current juniors and eleven current seniors received their diplomas and cards certifying membership in the society. A practice the night before ensured that all went smoothly in the ceremony. Refreshments were served afterwards in the library available to all who attended.

Students were chosen for the National Honor Society based on their demonstrations of their commitment to scholarship, leadership, service, and character, which together make up the four pillars of the society. In Haddonfield Memorial’s case, junior year applicants were required to meet a prerequisite of a 95 weighted grade point average while prospective seniors met a 93 weighted grade point average. From there, students shared their extracurricular pursuits and wrote short essays based around the pillars of the National Honor Society. Applications were then read and reviewed to determine if applicants were good fits for the program.

Beginning in the next quarter, new inductees of the National Honor Society will be required to perform ten hours of service a marking period and maintain their good grades. This service must relate to Haddonfield Memorial High School or the surrounding community.

As the school year picks up along with its accompanying responsibilities, members must not forget their obligations and prospective members must make sure they meet the criteria for selection.
