National Honor Society in Full Swing at Irvington High School
The Irvington High School chapter of the National Honor Society is in full swing. In its second year, the NHS welcomed back 28 members and inducted 60 more students in the fall.
Students are selected for the National Honor Society based upon the pillars of scholarship, service, leadership and character, and are required to perform community service. Juniors and seniors who were inducted as members of the inaugural National Honor Society are continuing last year’s peer tutoring program by working with their peers in different subjects.
“Most notably, the NHS members are currently helping to prepare their peers for the upcoming midterm exams by offering a series of tutoring options,” said Diana Cassidy, adviser for the National Honor Society. “Later this year the members of NHS will further embody the four pillars by engaging in additional community service and outreach opportunities.”
