On March 26th, Colman-Egan National Honor Society held its annual Inductee Ceremony. To be invited to join, students must meet the initial requirement of a minimum grade-point average of 3.3 out of a possible 4.0 Additionally they must demonstrate strong character, leadership qualities and community service. Selection of students for membership is by a faculty council. Once selected, members are required to continue to demonstrate these qualities through active involvement in school activities and community service and fulfill other responsibilities as outlined in the National Honor Society Constitution.
The National Honor Society is a service organization in which membership is a highly sought after. Students can apply after their first semester of their sophomore year. Colman-Egan NHS new inductees are Chase Hemmer, Cole Tolley, Nathaniel Williams and Jordan Wittrock.
The guest speaker was a 2005 graduate of Colman-Egan High School Laura Keupp Bult who is currently a speech therapist for the Madison School District. Along with Laura Keupp Bult, Principal Scott Hemmer and School Counselor Vickie Leibel presented the NHS certificates to the new inductees.
The National Honor Society began in 1921 to honor students who demonstrated excellence. The Society estimates that more than one million students participate in NHS activities, with chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many US territories, and Canada.
