National Honor’s Society Induction

Kara Puszko '18, Features Editor

On November 16, 2017, Oakland Catholic held its annual National Honor Society induction. NHS is the United States’s most well-known organization of scholars, built upon the pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Seventy-six juniors and ten seniors were inducted who pledged to uphold the four qualities of NHS, and take on the challenges that come with this honor.

New and current members assembled in the Donahue Pavilion to listen to Mrs. Greco’s opening prayer, and Dr. Doerfler’s Adviser’s Address. Four current members then gave excellent reflections on each of the four qualities of National Honor Society: Molly DeLuca on Scholarship, Sydney Barlow on Leadership, Erin Sheedy on Service, and Isabelle Schmeler on Character. The inductees recited the pledge of National Honor Society, led by Dr. Doerfler, and each new member was called to receive their NHS stoll and certificate. Mrs. Kasunic concluded the ceremony with the President’s Address, ending the exquisite evening that celebrated some of OC’s outstanding students. Afterwards, students and their families congregated outside the Donahue Pavilion for refreshments.
