National Honor Society Induction

The St. Thomas More Chapter of the National Honor Society welcomed 38 new members at its induction ceremony on Tuesday, February 8, 2005 in the school theatre.  Parents and guests were present as the new inductees pledged to maintain high scholastic standing, to hold as fundamental and worthy an untarnished character, to always seek the truth and to give freely in service to others.

Officers of the Honor Society, Anne Frazer, Virginia Deaton, Anna Heink and Alycia Keller, called the inductees to sign the register and receive their pin and certificate. Mr. Carmen Geraci of the LCHS English Department, the guest speaker for the evening, challenged the inductees to put their gifts into practice. A reception provided by the Academic Boosters followed the ceremony.  Below is a full listing of the inductees.  Pictures by Barb Schnurr

 When the National Honor Society was founded in 1921, the hope was to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy.  The ideals of scholarship, character, service and leadership remain as relevant today as they did in 1921. The Lexington Catholic Chapter recognizes these ideals and strives to embody them in its practices.
