North Central inducts new group of National Honor Society students
POWERS — North Central Area Schools held their annual National Honor Society induction on Sunday, Oct. 21 at St. John Neumann Parish Hall in Spalding. New inductees include seniors, Griffin Johnson and Tayler Pourpore; juniors, Leo Gorzinski and Jasmine Walters; and early-admission sophomores, Ava Eichhorn, Jaiden Fleetwood, Autumn Gundrum and Chloe Webber.
In order to be selected as a member of the North Central Chapter of NHS, students need to portray the four pillars of NHS: character, scholarship, leadership and service. Juniors and seniors need to maintain a 3.3 GPA, while early-admission sophomores require a 3.5 GPA. All students who are eligible solely based on GPA are given an application packet. After the packets are turned in, the faculty council of five teachers meet to vote on students for membership and schedule interviews for candidates.
Twenty-two students were eligible for the honor, with eight students chosen for membership this year.
