“I feel so honored and excited to be a member,” said new inductee Essence Slomianski (10th grade).
The NHS recognizes students who excel academically as well as in areas of character and leadership. As part of the ceremony, students lit candles for scholarship, leadership, character, service and Torah.
“They have to stay focused on their dreams and goals,” said Daniel Yerushalmi (12th grade), 3-year member of the NHS. “They must continue to motivate themselves every day.”
During the ceremony, NHS inductees were addressed by Rabbi Aaron Assaraf, Rabbi Kahn and Channel 7 reporter Rosh Lowe.
“Try your best,” said NHS member Aliza Posner (12th grade) “NHS is just a label and as long as you’re doing your best to help your school, communities, peers, and get the best grades you can, you’re already an honorable student.”
“I think that the National Honor Society celebrates the global student,” said Assistant Principal, Rabbi Aharon Assaraf. “This means that they aren’t one dimensional in their studies, they excel in each and every class as well as being servants to the community.”
