Inductees and their families pose for photos following their induction ceremony. “I think things went really smoothly for us,” Landry Wolter said.
Last Tuesday, Apr. 11, East’s chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS), inducted 86 new members into the organization.
An annual event, this induction does not just mark the transition of classes and welcoming of new members to this prestigious club, the induction introduces incoming members to their new responsibilities as leaders in the Oswego community.
While a fun and celebratory event, members found themselves anxious in the moments proceeding their induction.
“I was really nervous,” inductee Landry Wolter said. “I obviously felt honored but something about walking across the stage was a bit nerve-wracking.”
With jittery nerves being commonplace for events like these, Wolters and other inductees still feel that the night went well and it got them excited to get going within the club.
“This is the boring part, I’m looking forward to actually starting our service projects and getting to work,” Aayan Roy said.
Roy shares that hearing about NHS’s accomplishments this year, he felt motivated to uphold the standard that has been set.
“I know lots of us went to peer tutoring, or know someone who did, and things like that are stuff that we as NHS members should be doing and helping with, stuff like that is what I want to do with the rest of the members,” Roy said.
East’s NHS sponsor Colleen Calvey said she’s ready for next year’s projects.
“I like everything we did this year but I think that it’s up to the new executive board to determine what direction they want to go in,” Calvey said.
The inductees will get to work in the 2023-2024 school year, starting off by electing their executive board at the May 2 meeting.
