In a special ceremony on May 16 at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School, 18 students were inducted into the National Honor Society.
To be selected, candidates must first have a cumulative grade point average of 90 percent or higher and then be selected by members of a Faculty Council for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
The newest members of the National Honor Society include:
Philip Crandall Jr.
Once inducted, members of the National Honor Society are expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community.
The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in more than 60 percent of the nation’s high schools, and since 1921 millions of students have been selected for membership. Millions of dollars in scholarships have been awarded since 1945 by the sponsoring organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
