CAMP HUMPHREYS — The Humphreys American School National Junior Honor Society welcomed 11 new members in an induction ceremony March 24 at the school.
To be eligible for induction, students must have at least a 3.5 grade point average, but it takes more than classroom success. Also considered are leadership, service, citizenship and character. Current honor society members Anne Moore, Miles Richardson, and Felicia Lozinski joined middle school teacher Vilira Miller and former high school student body president Tess Sterling in lighting five candles that represented the five tenants of the society.
Principal Joyce Diggs told the inductees that membership was an honor, but that it also came with a responsibility to live up to the society’s standards and represent it well.
Vice Principal Lee Hill, a former guidance counselor, said membership was the type of criteria that colleges look for when awarding scholarships.
Each inductee received a certificate and a pin. Inducted were: sixth-graders Sarah Jane Levine and Christina Mann; seventh-graders Syndie Corlew, Devon Dye, Robert Haas, Stephanie Owen and Aerial Rouse; and eighth-graders Dominique Essex, Kyler Schmidt, Erik Rude and Charlene Wong.
