Locust Valley High School inducted 130 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.

Principal Dr. Kieran McGuire described these traits, which are the criteria for admission to the honor society, and told the group how proud he was of their actions in the community and their dedication to their academics.  “Thank you for providing us with the inspiration and example of your efforts and successes.”

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Anna F. Hunderfund and Board of Education President Suzanne Sgueglia addressed the students during the ceremony, which included the traditional candle lighting ceremony. Each inductee lit a symbolic candle and recited the oath, promising to live up to the standards of the National Honor Society.

Dr. Hunderfund expressed her pride for the accomplishments of this elite group of young men and women. “Congratulations for being who you are, for distinguishing yourselves in so many ways and for truly being the pride of Locust Valley High School.”

Congratulations to the new inductees!
