On April 19, Samantha Jordan and John Czech, the NHS sponsors, were ready to induct the new members of NHS for the 2018-2019 school year. This event happens every year, with old members congratulating the new members on their accomplishments they made. Samantha Averitt, president of NHS, Jacoby Dale, vice-president of NHS, and Christopher LaFeve, athletic director, made speeches at this event, acknowledging the students for their hard work and dedication to the school. Juniors Makayla Sumrall, Cody Quiroz, Joe Zerilli, and seniors Samantha Averitt and Madisyn Boussie had contributed in the ceremony by lighting the candles that each represent a key factor in being an NHS member.

Being chosen for NHS has a few requirements. First, you have to have a minimum of a 3.4 grade point average. Sophomores and juniors can apply and show their leadership and community service. Jordan and Czech make sure that membership certificates are printed, school board invitations are sent to parents, and speakers were prepared for the ceremony.

“We expect them to participate in communities by volunteering, tutoring at AIM, and maintain or improve their GPA,” Jordan said.

Many inductees were excited to be new members of NHS. Even though it requires some hard work, it shows that they are leaders in the school who represent what Roseville is all about. Emma Carro is one of the new inducted members. She says that becoming an NHS member required her to stay motivated and work hard no matter what. Being a part of this conveys a good image for Carro and all of her fellow members.

“It was something I never thought I would be able to do,” Carro said.
