The 2023 National Honor Society (NHS) Induction Ceremony took place on Sunday, and over 100 students attended the event.

NHS is a selected group of students that help with Brother Rice events. Students are expected to maintain a 3.2 unweighted GPA in the classroom and run open houses for grade school students.

Senior NHS President Mick Arundel said, “NHS students are expected to live up to certain standards and responsibilities which prepares them for life after Brother Rice.”

Every year, NHS holds an induction ceremony at Brother Rice to acknowledge the students for their hard work and dedication to the school.

Senior Sam Klinger said, “NHS is one of the greatest honors a student can receive. It prepares students to become better leaders, students, and overall better people in their communities.”

The ceremony was led by senior NHS members, Henry Ivers and Mick Arundel. Speeches were given by Emmanuel Richardson (reflection on character), Kevin Lufrano (reflection on scholarship), James Siegler (reflection on service), and Sam Klinger (reflection on leadership).

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors were given awards from school President Mark Donahue and Principal Bob Alberts.

Newly inducted sophomores received a certificate and pledged to uphold the NHS standards. Juniors pledged to perform scholarly actions and were given a pin for their acts of leadership throughout the school. Seniors pledged to keep serving the school and others for the rest of their lives and were given golden cords for graduation.

Senior Kevin Lufrano said, “Being a part of NHS is a privilege, and it’s been an honor making an impact on future Crusaders in the community.”
