With an emphasis on character, scholarship, leadership and service, the Logan County chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) hosted its annual fall induction ceremony at Riverside High School on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
Students from Indian Lake, Benjamin Logan and Riverside high schools were recognized for their academic achievements.
The evening included an opportunity to hear from the junior candidates for county officers, after which those in attendance voted for their choices.
The results were: president – Amelia Schmiedebusch, Indian Lake; vice president – Joslin Wilber, Benjamin Logan; and secretary – Rielee Richmond, Riverside.
Next, four of the students shared thoughts on the meaning behind the four pillars of the NHS, then lit a candle to represent that pillar.
Benjamin Logan senior, and outgoing county secretary, Isaac Napier said, “Character is achieved, not received.”
Alaina Snow (Riverside senior) spoke about scholarship, concluding, “Knowledge is one great element in life that leads to success.”
In her speech, Benjamin Logan senior Elliot Bailey stated, “The price of leadership is sacrifice.”
And regarding service, Katelyn Pippin, a senior at Indian Lake, and chapter president, said, “We are committed to serving God and man unselfishly.”
The new members were then inducted into the society and the new officers were installed. Following a benediction, attendees were invited to a reception.
