Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Lincoln-Way East High School inducted 203 students into the National Honor Society during a special ceremony held September 22 in the schools auditorium.

East student Keara Flaherty led the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem was sung by Ellie Novonty and Jacqui Michuda. Renee Linden performed a piano interlude to welcome parents and guests to the ceremony.

National Honor Society Sponsor Mrs. April Richter presented the 2015-2016 officers: Abby Olivieri, president; Keara Flaherty, vice-president; Ellie Novotny, secretary; and Krupa Patel, treasurer.

Lincoln-Way East Principal Dr. Sharon Michalak welcomed students, parents, friends and family members to the ceremony.

National Honor Society is an important organization because it sets the bar high for academic excellence and it promotes important values like community service and character, said Michalak. We commend our students for investing in service and understanding the value it brings to their community.

Each year, Lincoln-Way East High School NHS students traditionally recognize a faculty member for their service and dedication to the students, community, and school. This year East NHS students honored physics teacher Mr. Ryan Lodes.

East Associate Principal Mr. Joe Skarbek gave the keynote address for the ceremony. He spoke to the values of the four main principles of acceptance into the National Honor Society: scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
