SPHS National Honor Society new members

Saint Peter High School’s newest members of the National Honor Society, 27 of them in all, were inducted at a special ceremony at the SPHS Performing Arts Center on November 6. SPHS used to hold the induction ceremony in the spring but moved it to fall starting this school year to be more in line with what other school districts do each year.

The National Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, the SPHS chapter of NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

SPHS school counselor and NHS advisor Regina Sirianni presided over the induction ceremony while Principal Annette Engeldinger provided the address. Member Alexandra Matarrese and NHS leadership team members Keira Dunn, Ximena Olivares, Riley Rubischko, and Mackenzie Moline each spoke on the history/future of the SPHS NHS Chapter along with the four pillars that serve as standards for NHS -- Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. The leadership team also introduced the new inductees.

“We are so excited to welcome our newest members to our chapter,” Sirianni said. “They all have exemplified the qualities we are looking for in members and I am excited to see what contributions they bring to our already outstanding chapter.”
