SIDNEY — Juniors and seniors at Sidney High School joined the National Honor Society during an induction ceremony and reception held March 13, 2016.
To qualify for National Honor Society, students must have a 3.5 grade point average or better, provide service and leadership in both the school and community and be honest, responsible, fair, courteous, tolerant and cooperative.
NHS Adviser Kelly Thorne greeted visitors and introduced Sidney High School Principal Jon Geuy who spoke about the privilege of being a National Honor Society Member.
“I say to you every day, ‘Your decisions determine your destiny.’ Your choices today have an influence on the rest of your life. You’re sitting here today because you’ve made good decisions. I urge you to continue that into the future.”
Geuy introduced Sidney City Schools Superintendent John Scheu who spoke of the character of National Honor Society members, noting that many of the most influential graduates of Sidney High School, who have gone on to be inducted into the Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor, were members of the society.
Scheu congratulated the students on this prestigious achievement, and went on to recognize the parents for their significant role in helping their child reach this success.
The current NHS officers led the ceremony, speaking about the principles of the society. President Quentin McKenzie spoke about scholarship; Kaitlyn Davis spoke on behalf of vice president Adrianne Miller about service; Shelby Baker spoke of leadership; and Ashley Egan spoke about character. A dessert reception followed the ceremony for the new members and their families.
