NHS officers Cameron Bailey ’23, Grant Creedican ’23, and Caiden Hyer ’23, along with NHS member Chris Tan '23, presented a symbolic ceremony by the lighting of four candles. Each candle represents one of the principles based upon the National Honor Society.
To be eligible for induction, students must achieve and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.7 and complete the required service hours. Their leadership and character qualities are determined by faculty feedback measuring students' growth during their time at Jesuit, with emphasis on leadership in the classroom as well as in extracurricular activities.
