On Wednesday, November 11, 13 Holy Trinity students were inducted into the National Honor Society (NHS) for the 2020-21 academic year. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony was held virtually allowing students to recite the NHS pledge and to be recognized. The induction recognizes junior and senior students who have demonstrated the four pillars of NHS: everyday scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
“The evening beautifully recognizes those students who strive to do their best in so many ways,” says Edward ‘Jack’ Helbig, English & Theatre Arts teacher and NHS advisor. “I’m pleased to have our juniors and seniors reaffirm their commitment. We are very proud of them.”
During the ceremony, NHS members Amber Williams ‘21, and Nikya Warren ‘21 gave speeches on the importance of the NHS pillars and qualities members should work to embody. Assistant Principal Mrs. Nara Mahone offered her congratulations to the inductees.
“I absolutely love working with the NHS,” says Dr. Bernada Baker, Dean of Students at HT. “Our students rise to every challenge, help a variety of causes, and always give 100 percent. We are excited about the paths each of them embarking upon.”
Congratulations to the following students who met all requirements and were inducted: Adrian Ayala ‘22, Elizabeth Asamoah-Baffour ‘21, Lesly Gonzalez ‘22, Isabella Hernandez ‘21, Madelyn Jackson ‘22, Krishna Krishna ‘22, Jason Mena ‘22, Kassandra Morales ‘21, Yarile Ortiz ‘22, Hniang ‘Elena’ Par ‘22, Arieli Rico ‘22, Eva Teruel ‘22, and Kofi Yeboah-Boakye ‘21.
Special thanks to NHS advisors Edward ‘Jack’ Helbig, and Dr. Bernada Baker.
