Ninety-six students were inducted into the National Honor Society at Providence Day School on Nov. 8 in the McMahon Fine Arts Center theater.
National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization founded in 1921, and members are selected based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service and character.
Juniors and seniors who have attended PDS for a minimum of one year and who have a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher are invited to apply for NHS membership. Selection of members is done through a committee of faculty members. Some aspect of service to the community, school or other organizations also is required.
Head of Upper School Eric Hedinger and Upper School Science department chair Jim Bledsoe joined Head of School Dr. Glyn Cowlishaw in congratulating the students. Bledsoe serves as the advisor to Providence Day's NHS chapter.
