RAHWAY—The Community Meeting Room at the Rahway Public Library was the scene for recognition of a select group of students from Rahway High School, juniors who had been chosen for induction into the National Honor Society. This event took place Thursday evening, June 11.
John Odin, a teacher at the high school, conducted the ceremony. He spoke about the four pillars of the National Honor Society, represented by lighted candles: Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character.
Scholarship is evidenced by having a cumulative average equal to or in excess of 3.38. Service is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others.
Odin also spoke of how much he enjoys working with National Honor Society members.
The students were also addressed by Paula Braxton, principal of Rahway High School and both they and their parents commended for excellent effort.
Armanni Saaha-Tann, Samantha Smith, Adam Staryak, Jessica Coyne, Carley Lesinski, Asia Huey, Cynthia Brenner, Alexander Dabrowski, Jessica Didyoung, Kristine Trippiedi, Elizabeth Cron, James Heim, Robert Frank and Anthony Rinon were inducted into the honor society.
