Locust Valley High School inducted almost 100 students into the National Honor Society, recognizing their achievements in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The newest inductees join their fellow members in upholding these principles by contributing their time and talents to better the school and local community through volunteer activities, civic involvement and adherence to the highest standards of academics, morality and ethics.

Master of ceremonies Madison Davidson welcomed the inductees, their guests and the honored speakers. High School Principal Dr. Kieran McGuire addressed the inductees acknowledging the tremendous amount of work each one had to undertake to achieve this honor. Following Dr. McGuire’s speech, high school student Caoimhe Stafford played Schubert’s Impromous Opus 90 No. 4, and she did so to perfection.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Anna F. Hunderfund praised the students for their dedication to being the “best of the best.” The Locust Valley High School National Honor Society officers led the entire ceremony and lit the ceremonial candles for each characteristic., with the inductees each lighting their own candle in the traditional style. Joseph Palumbo spoke about scholarship; Raysa Bousleiman about service; Gregory Caso about leadership; and Amanda Caso about character.

The Honor Society advisors, Ms. Courtney McKay and Ms. Jennifer Masa led the inductees in the official installation into this prestigious club as each honoree recited the oath.

Congratulations to the new inductees!
