Huntoon Chapter of the National Honor Society at Bellows Falls Union High School. — COURTESY PHOTONew members were inducted into the Jesse A. Judd ― Marilee B. Huntoon Chapter of the National Honor Society at Bellows Falls Union High School. — COURTESY PHOTOWESTMINSTER ― The Bellows Falls Union High School (BFUHS) Jesse A. Judd ― Marilee B. Huntoon Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) welcomed 14 new members during its recent induction ceremony.

The new NHS members include seniors Nora Bright, Simon Bupp-Chickering, Deven Carrier, Liam Hackett, Michael Houle, and Hannah Kelly; and juniors Reaghan Baldasaro, Hannah Harlow, Abigail Jones, Ethan Lauricella, Danielle Marchica, Nicolas Potter, Zoe Schemm, and Katharine Wilkinson.

Ceremonies were conducted by current NHS members, who lit candles and read a short passage detailing the qualities it takes to be considered for the National Honor Society; scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. Students then read an introduction for each candidate being inducted which described how, through their academics, community service and extracurricular activities, each candidate met the criteria for membership in the NHS.

Principal Christopher Hodsden, in closing remarks after the induction ceremony, said that each of these new inductees do not exhibit one of these qualities, rather they must exemplify all of these qualities to be considered for membership in the National Honor Society.

New members were presented with an NHS pin and membership card and took the membership pledge, followed by a reception for all members and guests.
