HANNIBAL – A dozen students at Hannibal High School were recently recognized for their academic achievement and general character as they were inducted into the Sadie Adamy Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS).
The 12 inductees were commended for demonstrating the requisite characteristics of an NHS member, including scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. These traits, according to Superintendent Christopher A. Staats, are evident in every inductee.
“You are what makes our school great,” he said, congratulating the students on their accomplishments. “This induction ceremony is the culmination of a lot of things you have done on your trip. It was hard, but you persevered. I couldn’t be prouder of you.
NHS co-advisers Lisa Mason and Kristina Licatese echoed those sentiments by presenting each inductee with a certificate of achievement. To signify their membership in the prestigious organization, each inductee lit a candle and recited the NHS Oath.
New inductees are Sandy Allen, Emily Barbeau, Kiley Emmons, Samantha Emmons, Gavin Griffin, Alex Hall, Santos Hernandez, Cole Hess, Nevin Horning, Georganne Melucci, Jacob Remillard and Lena Turaj.
