Allen D. Nease High School recently welcomed more than 100 top students into the National Honor Society, formally inducting the students in a ceremony held Nov. 17.
Felipe Quinones, president of the school’s NHS chapter, welcomed students and guests before joining with the chapter’s officers to conduct a candle lighting induction ceremony. One by one, chapter officers stepped forward to light candles signifying knowledge, leadership, scholarship, character and honor.
