Sixteen students were recognized at the annual Senior National Honor Society Induction Ceremony (NHS) at Byron-Bergen High School. This brings the total number of members to thirty-five who have displayed specific criteria to become part of this organization. Members of the Singing Silhouettes, under the direction of Kathy White, opened the ceremony and performed several selections during the evening. Dr. Scott G. Martzloff, Superintendent of Schools, and Mr. Aaron Johnson, High School Principal, delivered opening remarks. Kaitlynn Frisby, Nicholas Prospero, Briana Strassner, Anna Long, and Katherine Schrenker conducted the Candle Lighting Ceremony.
Eleven senior members were given special recognition and past graduate Ms. Bobbi Nelson was the guest speaker. Ms. Nelson addressed the students and how they should take an active role in education, “An education is not simply information… it is learning how to think about that information and how to apply it to the world around you.” Mrs. Alana Parnapy and Mr. William Fitzpatrick, NHS advisors, presented each inductee with a membership certificate and pin.
