The Boca Raton Community High School chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 122 new members Tuesday evening.
Following all the readings each new inductee was asked to come forward and sign the official book of record and light their own torch.
NHS was established in 1921 and it is one of the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character.
NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
Equipped with a constitution, an emblem and motto, and a group of dedicated principals as coordinators, the new NHS organization quickly developed into one of the country’s leading educational groups.
