Waresboro Elementary recently held its National Elementary Honor Society Induction Ceremony, during which 19 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. Ryder Rouse, former Waresboro Eagle and current South Georgia State college student, delivered the keynote speech. Ryder encouraged students to do the right thing even when no one is looking, for this is what determines one's true character. 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. Dr. Jenny Barnes stated that she is always so proud of the National Elementary Honor Society inductees not only because of their academic achievement but for the characteristics, such as responsibility, leadership and service, that will help them become successful in life.
