G. Ray Bodley High School in the Fulton City School District recently inducted 48 new members in the Joseph Compolieta Chapter of the National Honor Society in a ceremony held at the High School. NHS promotes the recognition of students, juniors and/or seniors, based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Scholarship is based on academic achievement and students must have an average of at least 89.5% to be considered for membership. In addition to academic eligibility, potential candidates should also be involved in school and/or community related activities, be responsible, dependable, resourceful, and uphold principals of morality and ethics.
Following a welcome by NHS president Elyse Cianfarano, Chelsea Avery, Clarissa Bawarski, Bella DeGelorm and Morgan Stafford sang the National Anthem and Alma Mater for G. Ray Bodley High School. GRB Principal Brian Buchanan congratulated not only the inductees but also acknowledged the many great supporters who helped the new members achieve this honor – their families and teachers.
