Mount Royal Academy welcomed four students into membership of The Saint Thomas Aquinas Chapter of the National Honor Society, in a ceremony held at the school on February 20. Members were selected by a council comprised of faculty members for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Cooper McCrillis, Naomi Nelson, Hannah Everitt, and Daniel Fitzgibbons met all of the requirements necessary to obtain this honor. As part of their induction and election into office, the students must collaborate on a community service project to be completed by the end of the school year. The students must also remain in good standing in all four criteria to remain in the National Honor Society.
“As advisor of our chapter, I am so pleased to see these four young people join our exceptional group of leaders,” said Mr. Andrew Mihaly, Faculty Advisor. “These students enrich our school on a daily basis and we are excited to see where the future takes them.”
The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in more than 60 percent of the nation's high schools and since its inception in 1929; millions of students have been selected for membership.
