National Honor Society Inductions
09.23.2021 / By Granville Christian Academy
The 1921 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to Albert Einstein for “his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.” 1921 was also the inaugural year of the National Honor Society (NHS), which started as a glimmer and grew into the radiant light it is today. With a humble beginning by a dedicated school leader named Eddie, NHS now boasts nearly 18,000 schools worldwide that celebrate students each year for their commitment to and demonstration of the four pillars: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. Principal Eddie’s vision was to create a national recognition program for students that looked at multiple dimensions of growth—not just academics, but also contribution of service, leadership potential, and most importantly, a foundation of good character.
We held this year’s National Honor Society Induction this week where four new members joined: Alexandra Cannone, Andrew Benvie, Rebekah Holler, and Josephine Johnson. Current members include: Joe Benvie, President, Brendon Austin, Vice President, Roger Taylor, Secretary, Meghan Exline, Treasurer, Xandy Arnholt, Megan Austin, Alaina Close, Addie Haga, Chloe Hansen, Landon Hegenberger, Rachel Hill, Cara Lynd, and Dana Weaver. Josh Miller, Chaplain of the Licking County Prosecutor’s Office, served as the keynote speaker for this year’s ceremony.
