Badin inducts 50 into NHS chapter


Badin High School inducted 50 students into its National Honor Society chapter during an annual evening “tapping” ceremony on Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Badin’s Mulcahey Gym.

“These are well-rounded students who have done a great job at Badin High School,” said Badin High Principal Brian Pendergest. “They are strong in the classroom, but they are also actively involved in helping to make Badin an outstanding place to go to school.”
