Thirty-six Riverhead High School juniors were inducted into the National Honor Society on Dec. 1. Students are selected for this honor based on outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Principal Charles Regan explained that the National Honor Society is more than just an honor roll.
“Yes,” he told the students, “your high grades made it possible for you to qualify, but your induction is based on much more than your grades. It is also a reflection of all that you do outside of the classroom and in the community.”
“After the holiday, NHS students will conduct a food drive and will be participating in our annual ‘Helping Hands Day’ in February,” National Honor Society co-advisor Laural Olsen said.
The following students met the qualifications and were inducted into Riverhead High School’s John Glenn Chapter of the National Honor Society.
