New NHS members are sworn in be sehnior Aubrie McRoberts at the induction ceremory on Sept 25. They included: joniors Logan Strunk, Taylor Spry, Lauren Kreisel, Emmaleigh Kowal, senior Wade Henderson, Kiesten Grobe and junior Kylee Fajen.

National Honor Society is a tremendous achievement for the students who gain the honor. If requirements are met, students are able to submit an application to apply for the honor of being a part of the organization that promotes leadership and service.

   The requirements for being accepted into the program include a lot of community service hours, students are required to have above a 3.5 GPA, be a well-rounded person, have good leadership qualities, and be a good scholar.

   “Being in NHS is a tough task because it is one of the highest clubs you can be a part of,” new inductee junior Logan Strunk said.   

   The new inductees included juniors Joe Montez, Kylee Fajen, Haley Dwyer, Lauren Kreisel, Logan Strunk, Taylor Spry, Brooke Spry, Gabby Porter, Emmaleigh Kowal, Jaelyn Swisher, seniors Wade Henderson, Kiersten Grobe and Reagan Shelby. 

    In previous years, the induction process has varied depending on what the NHS veterans wanted to do. This year, the students decided to have a more intimate ceremony in the middle school gymnasium on Sept. 25. 

   Family and guests were invited to attend the induction where new inductees officially became NHS members and current NHS members gave a short speech over the qualities of the new inductees.

    After the speeches, the new inductees signed a roster that included every member of Warsaw’s NHS chapter since its beginning.

   “Induction was special because returning members got to induct the new ones,” senior Kya Schepker said.

   Before the induction, the veteran members researched new members so that they could find out about their talents and leadership styles. 

   “I felt like induction went great and I would not expect anything less from our best friends,” junior Joe Montez said.

   Students have a feeling of unity being put together with their academically-inclined peers.   

   “Induction went really well and we are happy there was a good group of kids,” senior Lerran Yoder said.

   With only 13 new inductees in NHS it is an honor to be in it. 

  “Only a select few are inducted so it’s a great honor to be accepted,” Schepker said.
