Washingtonville High School National Honor Society inducts 78 new members

Washingtonville High School honored 78 students with the 55th annual induction ceremony to the National Honor Society on Monday, November 21, 2022.  
 
“Tonight, we celebrate the academic and community achievements of some of the brightest scholars here at school,” said Vice President of the National Honor Society, Kassidy Hardy.  
 
Washingtonville High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps started the night with a presentation of colors while Isabella Pagana sang the national anthem, and Ryan Godfrey played the piano. 
 
Then, current members of the National Honor Society led the ceremony.  
 
“Congratulations to our new inductees,” said President of the National Honor Society, Ashley Upeslacis. “The goal isn’t to just be a member of the National Honor Society; the goal is to use the opportunities that this club can give you to grow as a person and make differences in other people’s lives.” 
 
The four pillars of the National Honor Society are scholarship, service, leadership, and character. All students must possess these traits to be considered. A candle-lighting ceremony took place to represent these pillars. One at a time National Honor Society executive council members explained to the inductees the relevance of these characteristics and lit the corresponding candles.  
 
After, students were officially inducted into the Washingtonville National Honor Society by dripping wax into the bowl and signing their names on a scroll that has been used by the chapter for 55 years dating back to 1967.  
 
 Principal of Washingtonville Highschool, Brian Connolly, presented the new members with certificates. 
 
“You are here strong and determined,” said Mark Rosengarten, keynote speaker and retired chemistry teacher. “Your resilience and adaptability to rapidly changing circumstances will serve you well in the world that awaits you beyond these walls.”
