National Honor Society Inducts Over 100 Seniors at Page

Sophia Robertson, Editor-in-Chief

Last week, Page’s National Honor Society inducted 106 new members. The requirements to apply for the society are a weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher, leadership achievements, service participation, and a good evaluation of character. According to the NHS website, “You excel. You serve. You lead. You succeed. You have a true thirst for challenge and accomplishment.” This year, only seniors were inducted, but that is only the Page policy. The policy for the official National Honor Society is that students in tenth grade and up can be inducted. At Page, current juniors will apply in February so that they can be inducted next year.

Mr. McGehee, a history teacher and golf coach at Page, has been the National Honor Society advisor for eight years. Before he took this high position, he was on the faculty council for NHS. When asked what his favorite part about being a part of the honor society, he said that his favorite part was seeing the students get accepted. “It’s such an honor,” Mr. McGehee said, “and really a credit to their hard work over their high school tenures.” Mr. McGehee also enjoys giving back to the community through service that the Page NHS members participate in, as service is a major component of the National Honor Society. 

The group’s first meeting will be in December. However, things will definitely look different this year. Meetings will be virtual, and the society will “have to look outside of the box in terms of service.” Mr. McGehee said that he has a few ideas on service opportunities despite the virus, particularly ideas about peer tutoring for service hours. A list of the inducted members has been provided below. Congratulations, Pirates!
