The 71 inductees have different personalities and different interests, some of them involved in sports, some music, some art and some all of the above, but they all share one thing in common, they were selected for induction into the Honeoye Falls-Lima National Honor Society because of their scholarship (all have a grade point average of 3.63 or better), the leadership skills they have shown, the service opportunities they have been involved in and their character.
The HF-L National Honor Society welcomed the 71 new members in an induction ceremony on January 15 in the District Auditorium. After opening remarks by co-advisor Dianne Witkowski and a welcome from the school’s current NHS President Philip Ackerman, High School Assistant Principal James Nelson gave a short keynote address. NHS Secretary Dana Szczublewski (Scholarship), Treasurer Alexis Schiedel (Leadership), Vice President-Service Lindsay Cody (Service) and Vice President-Academics Cole Siewert (Character) made short presentations on each of the four pillars of National Honor Society.
