NHS Inductions

Updated: Mar 5, 2019

This past Thursday, January 28th, 2016, a new round of 41 students were inducted into

the Mishawaka High School National Honor Society. Each student recited the NHS oath (led by

Bradley Conn) and signed their name into an honorary book (inducted by Alessandro

Martellaro), alongside all of the past members. Four of the executive officers, Bradley Conn

(Vice President), Sean McGarry (Treasurer), Peyton Marshall (Secretary), and Shelby Garing

(Historian), each spoke on the importance of one of four pillars that NHS rests on: character,

scholarship, leadership, and service. After the officers spoke, Mr. Calderone introduced the guest speaker of the night, Mr. Halicki. Halicki noted the importance of NHS and the positive impact it had on the school, noting its prestige and the sense of accomplishment being in the NHS means. Alessandro Martellaro (President) closed the ceremony. One of the new inductees, Brant Hoggatt, said, “NHS is a great opportunity to help the community. It’s a good feeling to know that we are held in such high esteem among the community. Plus, it’s a good activity to add to my college applications.”

Since its establishment in 1921, Mishawaka’s NHS continues to work towards its

ultimate goals: “to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to

promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.” Mishawaka’s NHS is sponsored and supervised by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and sponsored at Mishawaka by Mr. Gregg Smith. The new inductees, as well as returning members, are required to come to all meetings and participate in at least 10 individual hours and 10 group hours of community service each semester, totalling 20 hours of working towards bettering our community.

The Alltold staff congratulates all the new members and wish them the best luck in their
