Students recognized for achievements

Students work hard every day to get recognized by their parents and fellow classmates. Once again this year students were acknowledged as hard working citizens of society. Among these students was junior Callie Workman.

“I love to help people. I always try my best,” said Workman.

Workman, along with other juniors and a few seniors were chosen to be a part of the National Honor Society. This group recognizes students who show high qualities in leadership, service, character, and scholarship. Students were asked to write an essay to show to others that they were worthy of being in this group.

“I decided to write the paper because I was in the Junior Honor Society when I was in middle school, and I thought it would be cool to be a part of something that meant something,” she said.

The induction ceremony took place on May 20 in Bill Williamson Auditorium. This year, around 70 students were inducted into the National Honor Society. Along with Workman, junior Steven Dwyer was also inducted.

“I wanted to prove to myself that I was capable of being inducted into such a prestigious organization,” said Dwyer.

This opens up the opportunity to students to showcase all of their achievements. Through this they learn how to be a better pupil and resident. It also opened up the eyes to some to the future that lies ahead.

“This is a prestigious award, but that my whole life is ahead of me. I need to continue to become a better student and citizen,” he said.
