The Charles C. Tillinghast Chapter of the National Honor Society at Wilton High School inducted 13 new members during Thursday evening’s Spring Induction Ceremony.
The following members of the Class of 2019 were inducted Thursday evening, April 19:
They join the 31 juniors who were inducted last fall, and the 48 senior class National Honor Society (NHS) members.
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.
The four main qualities recognized as deserving of National Honor Society membership are scholarship, service, leadership and character.
Parents and guests were welcomed to the ceremony by Wilton Schools’ superintendent Dr. Kevin Smith and WHS principal Dr. Robert O’Donnell. The new members were then presented by the current executive board of the NHS: Taylor Burke, president; Harvey Alexander, vice president; Elizabeth Lynch, secretary; and Cova Perez, treasurer.
During the event, senior members were honored with a NHS graduation tassel.
