The Lynbrook High School gymnasium was filled with administrators, board members, faculty, students and loved ones as 84 students were officially inducted into the Lynbrook chapter of the National Honor Society on April 30. The new inductees were selected based on their ability to maintain high standards of scholarship, service, leadership and character.

Members, both old and new, entered the gymnasium with music led by Brian White and the brass ensemble. Seated alongside current junior and senior members, the new inductees, which consisted of a senior, five juniors and 78 sophomores, pledged to uphold the organization’s pillars of scholarship, service, leadership and character. This included holding onto scholarship habits, engaging in worthy service and leading in all things that advance the welfare of the school, district, community and society.

NHS adviser Leonard Bruno and officers Daniel Marzari, Melissa Braun, Leah Hetrick and Humza Khan officiated the induction of new members and recognized current members for their continued service as leaders of their community. Newly inducted members received a certificate of membership with an accompanying ID card, junior members received the National Honor Society emblem for their second year of service and senior members received the National Honor Society gold pin for their three-year service and membership.

Bruno also discussed the significance of each of the four pillars that encompass the National Honor Society and mentioned many of the colleges and universities that accepted this year’s seniors. 

“Over 200 colleges and prestigious programs accepted the senior class of 2018,” he said. “This should remind our newly inducted members of the importance that our school and community place on academic achievement.” 

At the conclusion of the ceremony, incoming officers for the 2018-19 school year were announced, as voted on by their fellow junior members. Kaylie Hausknecht will serve as president, Spencer Chrein will act as vice president, Sam Cohen will be the new secretary and Jason Shao will take on the responsibilities of treasurer. Attendees gathered at the end of the evening for a celebratory reception.
