FULTON – The Fulton City School District welcomed 46 students into the National Honor Society recently.
The evening began with the singing of the National Anthem and the school’s Alma Mater by G. Ray Bodley chorus members.
Elizabeth Conners, Fulton executive director of instruction and assessment, and G. Ray Bodley Principal Donna Parkhurst were asked to be the guest speakers at the ceremony.
“Each of you is a fine example of the very best at GRB, and I am confident you will carry this honor with integrity and pride,” said Parkhurst. “I am pleased to be amongst a room full of young leaders.”
