On Wednesday, November 15, the National Honors Society induction was held at Millbrook. The first half of the induction explains the qualities the candidates must possess including service, character, leadership and scholarship. These are the qualities a student must have to be a part of the NHS. Service is important in our school community and there are many students who offer help in Winchester as well as our school community. There are multiple things students do to exhibit service, including anything from collecting clothes for homeless people to being a peer mentor.
Character was the second quality students needed to exhibit. Character means treating people with respect and is something that will get you far in life. The third quality was leadership, meaning that students were able to control a situation rather than being a follower. NHS students are brave enough to stand up for what they believe in and for what other people believe in. The last quality was scholarship. This quality is important in the school community because having good grades and a good GPA is what gets students looked at for college and it’s important to be on task and have a good mindset in school.
Inductee Madelynn Shores said, “I felt pretty honored to be a part of something like NHS.” She said, “I feel with all of the hard work I’ve put into being involved in and out of school, and with how hard I plan on continuing to push myself, this was definitely a goal I was setting for myself. I feel it should be a goal that people should be striving for, because it’s such an honor and I’m so grateful.” Madelynn also said, “I’m very proud of myself and everyone else who was inducted as well. We all worked hard to get this far in our academic careers and now we have something to show for it.” Madelynn is looking forward to the opportunities she and the other inductees will have in the community. “It’s our duty to help the less fortunate than us, and I’m ready and excited for the many opportunities that will be offered for us to give back.”
Millbrook’s National Honor Society chapter is all about giving back to our community and being humble and gracious. They are students to admire and look up to.
