Each year, a faculty council at Monsignor Pace High School goes through an extensive process that evaluates the best and brightest students on scholastic ability, strength of character, their leadership, and their dedication to service.
Those sophomore, junior, and senior students who best exemplified these qualities were accepted as the newest members to the National Honor Society, America’s oldest and most prestigious high school organization.
On November 4, Pace NHS welcomed these new members during the annual induction, held in the Spartan Center. Pace principal Ana Garcia kicked off the evening, welcoming the inductees and their parents and praising them on their combined efforts in high school thus far.
A few words from the advisor and activities director were followed by the presentation of the NHS certificates, a traditional candle-lighting ceremony, and an elegant dinner. A total of fifty-nine students – 24 sophomores, 19 juniors, and 16 seniors – were recognized that night, joining the ranks of an exclusive group of students that have formed the premier society at Monsignor Pace for nearly forty years.
These students represent the most well-rounded portion of the student body and place in the highest caliber of high school students across the United States.
As members of the society, they will be responsible to continue exemplifying the four pillars of NHS throughout their high school years, serving as leaders not only at Pace but for years after.
