On Wednesday May 3, select students were inducted into the National Honors Society. NHS is a nationwide organization for high school students.  NHS members at MCA are students who consistently represent attributes of scholarship, service, leadership and character. There are also requirements that have to be met in order to be a part of this organization. Those requirements include a submission of a membership packet exhibiting and maintaining a 3.50 minimum high school GPA, a maximum of 8 total days absent in any academic year, no behavioral detentions or repeated violation detentions, Saturday schools, school suspensions, or any MCA code of conduct, honor code, or sportsmanship code of conduct violations, exhibiting and maintaining NHS chapter and MCA standards in character, conduct, and servant leadership, exhibiting and maintaining NHS chapter and MCA standards in community service and regular attendance of monthly NHS chapter meetings. This event started off with the advisor of NHS at MCA, Tara Ackmann, recognizing the current members. Followed by that, new members stood up and recited the induction pledge. After the inductees said their pledge, they came up one by one to sign their names in the induction book. Next, they received their certificates from the Upper School Principal, Laura Smith. Lastly, senior members were presented with their stoles where they will wear at graduation on May 12. After the ceremony, junior Griffin Post talks about the ceremony saying, “It was really fun. I am really glad that I can be a part of an organization that serves my amazing school as well as my beautiful community surrounding me.”
