One of the most distinguished organizations on campus welcomed 33 new members Wednesday evening inside the Richard and Louise Scholl Student Center. Marquette Catholic High School's Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) initiated five students from the Class of 2019, 15 from the Class of 2020, and 13 from the Class of 2021.
Following a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance recited by Quinn Larkin ('20), National Honor Society Vice President Jack Mason ('19) delivered the welcoming speech, reinforcing the organization's founding values of academics, character, leadership, and service.
Rory Neary ('19) spoke on scholarship and the importance of a cultivated mind. Abigail Novak ('20) quoted Charles William Eliot as she touched upon service. Adam Pierzakowski ('20) addressed the crowd regarding leadership and the significance of sacrifice and servant leadership. Sam Salyer ('19) concluded the speakers' portion of the ceremony, discussing how perseverance and character are paramount in receiving the best from our abilities.
Janae Galburth ('19), the Student Body President, led the inductees in the lighting of candles before reciting the NHS Pledge.
