Most honor society inductions are pretty impersonal: The club advisor reads a long list of names, the kids get their certificates or pins,  listen to a general speech and go home. Verona High School, however, has a lovely tradition: Students ask a favorite teacher to introduce them personally at the ceremony. It’s inspiring to hear the unique accomplishments and academic talents of each new member of the honor society, and to witness the special relationship Verona’s teachers develop with their students and the time and thoughtfulness that goes into their descriptions of their students.

On Monday, twenty-eight students from VHS were inducted into the National Honor Society in the high school auditorium. To be eligible for membership, juniors and seniors must have a minimum grade point average of 3.850 and must not have had an “F” in any course. The student must also participate in extra-curricular activities and demonstrate good character.

This year, introductions were also made by teacher Angela Salisbury, who is also the NHS Advisor, and senior Tedi Rosenstein, president of the Society. In addition to the 27 junior inductees, there was one senior inductee, Amy Janett, who was on an exchange program abroad last year.
