On Monday, May 2, 12 YS High School students were inducted as new members of the Yellow Springs chapter of the National Honor Society. Pictured, from left, are the new members: Marin Wirrig, Luka Sage-Frabotta, Eve Diamond, Josh Clark, Josie DeWine, Joaquin Espinosa, Cheyan Sundell-Turner, Jason Knemeyer, Jospehine Zinger, Ethan Knemeyer, Daphne Trilliana and Eli Eyrich.
The National Honor Society aims to uphold four pillars within its membership: scholarship, service, leadership and character. To gain eligibility, prospective members must maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, complete voluntary community service projects, demonstrate leadership experience in school or community activities and exhibit honesty, respect for others and reliability while maintaining a clean disciplinary record.
Yellow Springs’ NHS chapter was established in 1938 at Bryan High School; its first inductee was Richard Liming. The new members’ names join a record of local members — including many current villagers spanning generations — that has been continuously documented for 84 years.
