Waresboro Elementary recently held its National Elementary Honor Society Induction Ceremony, during which 17 students received the prestigious honor of being recognized for their scholarship, responsibility, leadership, and service. Students who are inducted into NEHS must have a 93 overall average and receive positive recommendations from their teachers.
Among those in attendance to celebrate this achievement were many parents, grandparents and former retired educators. Graci Thrift and Ivey Thrift, two Ware County High School Seniors and former Waresboro Eagles, delivered a memorable and inspirational keynote speech. Current NEHS members spoke of the qualities that one must possess as a member. Inductees then took their membership pledge, and the ceremony concluded with the traditional lighting of the candles representing scholarship, responsibility, leadership, and service.
NEHS members are led by advisors Lisa Thrift and Sarah Smith. Lisa Thrift commented, “I was so honored to have the privilege of inducting and welcoming the new Waresboro Elementary NEHS students for the school year 2016 - 2017. I look forward to working and learning with them next year. I can't imagine what the school year will hold for us, but I know these awesome students will meet and conquer all challenges that may arise in the future.” Dr. Jenny Barnes is the principal at Waresboro Elementary.
