It’s the start of something new! Saint Louis National Honors Society has been introduced to a new set of students and the induction ceremony will be held virtually April 20. 

With the number of students quarantined, the number of COVID cases in the area rising, and the uncertainty of the day-to-day situation, it’s been decided to have a virtual National Honor Society Induction Ceremony this spring. Danielle Thelen stated, “I am so excited to be a part of NHS. I would like to give back to the community, and I feel that NHS could help me reach that goal. I am excited to be part of a group of students who have the same interests as me. I am looking forward to the induction ceremony, but I am sad due to the fact that it will be virtual this year. I heard from many students that it would not be the same experience as it is in person. Though it’s virtual, this will not stop my excitement for a promising future of NHS.”

Many were disappointed due to the ceremony being virtual. Maude Zolue stated, “I am sad that it is virtual the first year I joined because I’ve heard that in-person is one of the spring highlights. I am excited about the future because I wanna help give back to the St. Louis community. I feel that NHS will teach me important lessons that I could use in the future. I am excited to see what I can bring to NHS this year.”

It’s been mentioned by one of the heads of NHS, “Celebrating with you and your families at the induction ceremony is one of our spring highlights!  However, we are hoping to have a reception later this year or early in the fall so that we can celebrate with families and take pictures.” Thelen continued, “I am looking forward to celebrating with my friends and family at the reception. Hopefully, we will have it later on in the year.”
