Andover High School inducted 104 juniors and seniors into the National Honor Society on Nov. 2. The new inductees joined 106 existing NHS members at the school.
“This is an exceptional group of students who are involved in many aspects of the school,” Brian Shea, an AHS English teacher who has been the schools NHS Advisor for 12 years, said in a statement released Tuesday. “In addition to being made up of a variety of students who excel in academics, athletics, and the arts, NHS students are a group of generous, caring and respectful kids who are deeply involved in their community.”
To apply for NHS, students need a 3.75 unweighted GPA or a 4.25 weighted GPA. The induction ceremony program, including the complete list of new inductees and existing members, is embedded below.
“Our educators’ mentorship on all AHS students is really impactful for their high school experience,” Superintendent Magda Parvey said in a statement. “The celebration of our NHS students and their teachers is a great example of the partnership and community at AHS.”
The new inductees have already participated in their first event of the year, baking and selling apple pies for the holidays (photo, above). The students made 500 pies at the AHS cafeteria, some of which were donated to Lazarus House for Thanksgiving baskets.
