CHS National Honor Society Induction 2022
After two years of virtual ceremonies, this year's inductees to the selective National Honor Society were sworn in at a live ceremony on April 27th. The CHS brass band played a processional, the National Anthem, and a recessional, adding a special touch to the event.
The National Honor Society, established in 1921, is based on these four pillars: Leadership, Character, Scholarship, and Service. Membership is selective and candidates must demonstrate their proficiency or participation in each of these four categories. This year's 45 inductees have proven themselves to be not just excellent students but engaged and involved citizens in our community.
Several members of administration delivered remarks of welcome and congratulations, including CHS principal Ahmad Hamdeh, who is himself an alumnus of CHS.
Superintendent Robertozzi offered these poignant words as part of his remarks - "You may have heard the saying, 'Character is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.' It's true...and sometimes so very difficult because sometimes, you're the only person who knows you have good character. We all like to be recognized for doing the right thing, but what you should be proud of are all the times you do the right thing without the expectation of something in return. Academics can be measured, leadership and service can be seen, but character...well, character allows you to sleep well at night. Character keeps you on the right side of history and when the time comes, people will know you have it."
Congratulations to each of the new inductees; you make CHS and the greater Clifton community proud.
