G. Ray Bodley High School in the Fulton City School District recently inducted 40 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 percent 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.
Students from the Women’s Choir sang the National Anthem and Alma Mater. Betsy Conners, Director of Instruction and Assessment, congratulated the inductees and wished them well on the path to their future careers.
Chapter officers conducted the ceremony inducting the new members with readings on the four precepts of National Honor Society and listed the new members’ accomplishments and achievements, including their record of community service, as each new name was announced.
