There are 17 new members of the Knoxville HIgh School Chapter of the National Honor Society.
Chapter Sponsor Matt Heston told a crowd gathered at the Knoxville Performing Arts Center last night that this is the 84th year of the NHS being a part of Knoxville. Students are chosen for the society based upon scholarship, leadership, character and citizenship.
To be considered, a student must have a 3.25 cumulative grade point average. There were 58 students eligible at KHS based upon this statistic.
Students are then asked to write an essay and KHS faculty have input into the final selection of new members. Heston told the new members that this is a high honor, one that will open doors for them in the next few years.
New members include Emily Blankenship, Kass Davis, Grant Pearson, Ben Reichert, Sara Smith, Paige Spowart, Jory Wallace, Michala Brand, Levi Collins, Meredith Cunningham, McKayla Harrell, Cheyenne Jones, Jared McClung, Melissa Molloy, Nolan Wallace, Taylor Weldon and Natalie Worrall.
Previously inducted members include Madison Chrisman, Gerritt Davis, Brody Dingel, Erica Fee, Brendan Finan, Kaitlin Harrington, Rachel Humeston, Jamie Hunt, Marissa Lenger, Megan Molloy and Rachel Morgan.
We plan to post more photos from the ceremony later.
