Thirteen Albion high school students were inducted into the National Honor Society during a ceremony Wednesday night.
Nicholas Andrews, Natalie Baron, Natalie Bertsch, Clara Bolton, Hailey Crawford, Dallas Ecker, Jacob Foote, Samantha Hand, Amari Jones, Vincent Molisani, Audrey Pask, Emily Richardson and Brianna Sample met the criteria to be selected into the prestigious organization. Sample was unable to attend the ceremony.
The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 and is built on the four pillars of scholarship, service, leadership and character. Inductees must prove to exhibit all four qualities and be recommended by a faculty member. Last year’s inductees led the ceremony, which included recognition of outstanding high school teachers.
Math teacher Mr. Chad Owen was chosen as the recipient of Albion’s NHS Excellence in Teaching Award. Mr. Richard Gannon received recognition for exemplifying scholarship, Mrs. Sawyer Green service, Mr. Bradford Nickerson leadership and Mrs. Sandra Climenhaga character. All faculty honorees were picked by the current NHS members.
