Jesuit’s 2015 National Honor Society Induction

The National Honor Society (NHS) honored 121 Blue Jays as the newest members of the prestigious academic organization on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at its annual induction ceremony. The ceremony took place in the Auditorium where 31 seniors and 90 juniors were formally inducted into the St. Aloysius Gonzaga Chapter of the NHS. Each newly-initiated member received a certificate and pin, given by Jesuit President Fr. Anthony McGinn, S.J. ’66 and Principal Peter Kernion ’90.

The National Honor Society, founded in 1921, is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding students. The NHS fosters excellence in scholarship, leadership, character, and service among its members. The St. Aloysius Gonzaga Chapter at Jesuit High School competitively selects students who maintain a 3.75 G.P.A. and demonstrate an upstanding role in their school and community. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school and community service.

Chapter president and senior Chalon Fogarty congratulated the new members for their commitment to the organization’s mission and purpose. NHS members volunteer as lunchtime tutors, Open House tour guides, and serve in other aspects across the campus. Fogarty encouraged NHS members to exemplify their academic leadership through continued service to their fellow Blue Jays and community at large.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the Student Commons for the chapter’s newest honorees and their families. The co-moderators of Jesuit’s NHS chapter are Ms. Nilda Rivera and Mrs. Amy Tassin.
