North Central High School held the annual National Honor Society Induction on Sunday, October 21st at St. John Neumann Parish Hall in Spalding. New inductees included seniors Griffin Johnson & Tayler Poupore, juniors Leo Gorzinski & Jasmine Walters, and early admission sophomores Ava Eichhorn, Jaiden Fleetwood, Autumn Gundrum & Chloe Webber.
In order to be selected as a member of the North Central Chapter of NHS, students need to portray the four pillars of NHS: Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service. Juniors and seniors need to maintain a 3.3 GPA, while early admission sophomores require a 3.5 GPA. NHS members are also required to complete a minimum of 20 service hours per school year.
Returning members have been working on planning this
banquet since the school started. They all did a wonderful job!
The ceremony included an elaboration of the four pillars of NHS by the officers, individual introduction of new members by the current chapter, signing of the registry, the NHS pledge, and a luncheon. Special thank you to the parents for their contributions to the luncheon!
Photos from the ceremony can be viewed in the slideshow below.
New inductees were surprised with a congratulatory gift bag, which included the chapter t-shirts pictured below. These shirts are worn to promote our chapter in the community and while volunteering or facilitating our annual events.

New chapter t-shirts were worn to school the Monday after the banquet! Thanks again to Moonlight Graphics for printing shirts for all of our annual events!
National Honor Society sponsored a PowderPuff Volleyball tournament as part of Homecoming 2018. Admission for attending the tournament on Friday, October 12th was $1 or 1 canned food item per person. NHS members Brady, Amber, Ethan and Chloe (pictured below) dropped off our canned food collection on Thursday, October 18th to the Senior Center's food pantry in Hermansville. Read the Daily Press article HERE.
NHS members had the chance to earn some service hours by showing their creativity, school spirit, and humor by dressing up for SPIRIT WEEK!
Color Day was also the POWDER PUFF VOLLEYBALL tournament which includes all students 6th grade through Seniors.
The 8th grade won the Junior High Championship this year!
The Seniors were the overall high school champions.
