Wilton High School inducted a new membership class of the school’s National Honor Society Tillinghast Chapter last night, Nov. 23. There were 28 juniors and six seniors inducted at a ceremony and reception held in the Clune Auditorium.
Admission to the National Honor Society is no easy feat. To be considered, students need a minimum 3.5 GPA; in addition to scholarship, students are considered based on leadership; volunteer service; co-curricular activities in and out of school; and work recognition and awards. Students are inducted twice during the school year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Parents and guests were welcomed to the ceremony by Wilton Schools’ superintendent Dr. Kevin Smith and WHS principal Bob O’Donnell. The new members were then presented by the current executive board of the NHS: Maya Seshan, president; Rachel Pak, vice president; Victoria Baggio, secretary; and Mary Lynch, treasurer.
The students who were inducted yesterday are:
Class of 2016 (seniors)
Class of 2017 (juniors)
