CARBONDALE — On Wednesday, April 3, Carbondale Area hosted the National Honor Society’s induction ceremony.

The night’s festivities included a welcome given by Kianna Savage, a processional by Giana Arnese, the National Anthem by Aniela Connolly, and the Pledge of Allegiance by Kianna Savage.

A history of the NHS, Honor and Values, was given by Anna Allen and Noah Mauro, and a musical performance was given by Cora Heenan and Jon Pugliese.

The four qualities required for a student to be inducted into the NHS are Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character.

The officers of the NHS spoke about what each means.

NHS President Nicholas Vadella spoke on scholarship, while NHS Vice-President covered service.

NHS Secretary Madison Hayner spoke on Leadership, with Treasurer Kristina Gorel covering Character. The Honor Society Pledge was then given by Nicholas Vadella.

When asked how she felt about being a part of NHS for the past six years, Emily Wall, a senior member of the NHS and Vice-President, said, “It’s a great accomplishment.

“I’d like to have a career as a Physician’s Assistant so working hard and doing well is very important to me.

“Congrats to our advisors for always creating a beautiful induction ceremony.”

President Nick Vadella, said, “Since this is my last year here at CA, it means even more to me because we are graduating and moving on to future careers and will be on separate paths.

“I’m going to attend Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida to study computer science.

“I believe the work ethic and values instilled in me at CA will help get me through my college curriculum and my future.”
