National Honor Society Induction Ceremony 2019


Last Thursday, Cohasset’s National Honor Society inducted a total of 41 new members, a record high. These inductees consisted of exemplary junior and senior students who participate in service activities, demonstrate strong leadership skills, and exhibit commendable character.

The ceremony began with a short introduction about Cohasset’s National Honor Society Chapter by NHS advisor Mrs. Scott. Guest speaker, Jon Belber, the local farmer at Holly Hill Farm, spoke of his experience working with Cohasset volunteers. He compared his work on the farm to that in life, explaining how important it is to not only enjoy the fruits of our labor, but to look back on the hard work and concentrated effort that got us there in the first place.

The NHS officers followed the speech with descriptions of the four pillars of National Honor Society: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. They described that to be a member of NHS, a student must exhibit aptitude in all four qualities.

After pledging the oath, inductees and their mentors were called to the stage to receive a pin and sign a book encasing signatures of Cohasset’s National Honor Society inductees dating back nearly two decades.

The ceremony concluded with an inspiring speech from our principal, Mr. Brian Scott. He discussed the importance of finding purpose in our actions, rather than in material items. Mr. Scott also did a wonderful job of signaling out students for their commitment to service and stellar academic achievements.

All in all, it was a very memorable night.

Congratulations to all of the 2019 National Honor Society inductees!
