Falconer High School completed another successful Honor Society Induction Ceremony on Friday, Dec. 15. The 19 senior members welcomed in the 25 brand new inductees with speeches filled with humor and accolades for each candidate.

Happening in the high school’s auditorium, parents, families, faculty and the student body were in attendance to enjoy the ceremony.

The program commenced as 12 talented musicians — 10 students and band directors Michelle Battaglia and Jeffrey Camp — ushered in parents with Christmas carols before performing “The Star Spangled Banner.” Chapter officers led the program with segments describing the four pillars of Honor Society: scholarship, service, leadership, and character, lighting candles for each characteristic during the ceremony. Senior members then tapped the new candidates and welcomed them in to their Honor Society family.

In order to be considered, candidates had to complete a lengthy application centered around the four principles and create an essay that showcased themselves as candidates worthy of induction. A committee reviewed their applications, averages, and essays and deemed these 25 young men and women as the caliber of students deserving of this honor.

These applicants are students who arrive with high credentials, and are expected to uphold even higher expectations. Not only must they continue to maintain a 90 percent average each quarter, but they also must continue to exemplify those four core qualities upon which Honor Society functions. Each candidate also will be expected to be involved in various occasions to give back to the school and community through service opportunities.

Congratulations to the newest members for earning this esteemed honor.
