by Sue Sullivan
Eleven Randolph High School students who have been inducted into the National Honor Society joined seven current National Honor Society members in the November 12 National Honor Society Induction Ceremony at the school.
High School principal Benjamin Fisher warmly welcomed all those attending the event.
As each inductee was escorted into the gymnasium, a brief biography was given answering questions of why they strive for what they enjoy. The Statement of Purpose was read and candles were lit.
Pledging to uphold the principles of the National Honor Society and to be loyal to their school, they also promise to maintain and encourage high standards of scholarship, service, leadership and character.
Music was performed by the Randolph High School Band, playing Air for Band.
Guest speaker psychologist Kari J. Nelson, L.P., challenged students in the four characteristic areas within NHS.
Her charge to all in attendance, including the entire student body and guests, was to be committed to developing personal character in all of life's pursuits regardless of popularity, compelling true servanthood toward others which then develops deep lasting leadership. She urged all to lifelong learning as a means of being a worthy scholar.
New inductees are Cody Pirkl, Katie Stein, Gabe Graham, Alicia Ehleringer, Tristian Hayes, Kyle Volkert, Mikayla Pearson, Makayla Kuhn, Wendy Splichal, Delaney Prinzing and Thor Hanson.
They join current members Madi Taylor, Carolyn Meyer, Abby Meyer, Alexis Kimmes, Bianca Stoesz, Kristin Rudeen and Kendra Emery. Lisa Ehleringer is the advisor.
