GHS inducts new members to National Honor Society

One senior and 13 juniors were inducted Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015, into the Paul R. Rainey chapter of the National Honor Society at Georgetown High School.

The annual fall ceremony took place at 7:30 a.m. in the high school gymnasium and was followed by a reception for members, parents, relatives, guests, and faculty members in the high school library. The current group now totals 676 students.

The local chapter was named in honor of former teacher and principal, Paul R. Rainey, and was organized in 1961. Since then, the chapter has numbered nearly 700 members. To be eligible for membership, a student must attain a cumulative average of 3.5 over four semesters of high school work. Once a student has attained this average, he or she is voted upon by the faculty council. However, the society does not consider scholarship alone. The constitution of this organization recognizes four practices—scholarship, leadership, character, and service.

The National Honor Society is an organization under the auspices of the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Established in 1921, there are now over 20,000 chapters in this country and abroad.

Inducted in the Oct. 20 ceremony were: senior Mary Cheyenne Dunseith and juniors Ashley Marie Brandenburg, Madison Renee Brown, Alexis Lei Cahall, Sydney Jo Carrington, Tanner Ross Householder, Olivia Paige Kistler, Taylor Nicole McKinney, Lydia Christine Powell, Kassidy Leigh Seigla, Karis Ann Shiveley, Abigail Caroline Stapleton, Piper Erin Tomlin, and Solomon Bryce Underwood.

Fourteen new members were inducted into the Paul R. Rainey Chapter of the National Honor Society at Georgetown High School in ceremonies held Oct. 20.
