LITTLETON, N.H. -- "To Whom Much is Given, Much is Expected"... so reads the program for the 59th annual ceremony of the National Honor Society which took place on Oct. 17 when Littleton High School inducted 11 new members. Following the procession of the new members and the Pledge of Allegiance by NHS member Brianna Hartford, NHS president Rebecca Abbott gave the welcoming address and shared the membership criteria that students must meet in order to belong to this prestigious group.
National Honor Society members Taylor Glidden, Emma, Cook, Sam Brammer and Lindsey Glines made presentations relating to the four pillars of the Society: Scholarship, Character, Leadership and Service. In order to be inducted into the National Honor Society, a student must have maintained a 3.8 grade point average on a 5 point scale and have been an active participant in their community by serving others.
NHS President Rebecca Abbott and LHS Principal Sikander Rashid awarded certificates to members of the Class of 2011-2012 and NHS Advisor Louis Babin, along with Principal Rashid, presented members of the Class of 2012 with National Honor Society pins.
Following the traditional candle lighting ceremony, the inductees recited the National Honor Society pledge which was followed by remarks by guest speaker Claire Lewis who serves as Data Coordinator at LHS.
Induction of new members into the National Honor Society is one of the most important traditions associated with any NHS chapter. This year's new inductees from the Class of 2012 included Alyssa Keefe, Sarah Stinehour and Julia Winn. New inductees from the Class of 2013 included Alison Abbott, Christina DePalma, Aimee Hastings, Jesse Hight, Dori Horne, Sydney Pinard, Haley Smith and Morgan Wentworth.
