National Honor Society Inducts 16 at Granville HS

B y Katie Dunbar
 
On Monday, Dec. 13, 16 new members were inducted into the National Honor Society:  senior Megan Pietryka, and juniors Hunter Bassett, Ian Bixby, Stephanie Boutin, Garrett Brown, Darian Chapman, Alicia Clark, Alissa Dunavan, Katie Dunbar, Emily Fuller, Andrew Hadeka, Nicholas Kashner, Samuel McDermott, Molly Narkiewicz, Brittany Perry, and Evan Young.  This brought the Granville chapter of the National Honor Society to 35 students.
The audience was welcomed by Mr. Mark Bessen, superintendent of schools, and speakers included senior Chelsea Simpson, who spoke on knowledge; senior Tyler Jones, who spoke on character; senior Meghan O’Brien, who spoke on scholarship; and senior Olivia Martindale, who spoke on leadership.
The purpose of the National Honor Society is to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students must maintain a grade point average of 89.5 and excel in the areas of leadership, service, and character. These qualities are judged by teachers in the selection process. “The main goal of the National Honor Society is to promote
leadership and community service,” adviser Mr. Hardin said.
The Granville chapter of the National Honor Society does a great deal of community service throughout the year.  Every year, the organization adopts families through Head Start.  They participate in the Muscular Dystrophy Association of the Capital Region Shamrock Campaign to raise money for the MDA.  The goal of the organization is to
help everyone from the students in Granville to the community at large.
