North Central inducts new NHS members
POWERS — North Central Area Schools held its annual National Honor Society Induction Banquet on Sunday, Oct. 13 at St. John Neumann Parish Hall in Spalding. New inductees include seniors Brandon Grondine and Izaac Lauscher; juniors Olivia Arnold, Cheyenne Borucki, Gracey Grondine and Wyatt Riley; and early admission sophomores Bryson Mercier, Ariel Poupore, Dakota Schwark, Sarah Snyder and Katelyn Whitens.
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 letter. After applications are submitted, a faculty council of five teachers meets to vote on students for membership. Eleven students were inducted during this year’s ceremony.
North Central’s chapter of NHS is advised by K-12 art teacher Emily Westphal.
