Badin High School inducted 46 students into its National Honor Society chapter Sunday, Oct. 22, during its annual evening ceremony in the school’s Mulcahey Gym.
“Being inducted into National Honor Society is an outstanding accomplishment,” Badin Principal Patrick Keating said. “It’s about more than just doing well in the classroom. It’s about making a positive impact in the school; about being a part of the Badin fabric over and above a student’s academic excellence.”
National Honor Society recognizes students who excel in academics, character, service and leadership. The Oct. 22 event added 20 seniors, 18 juniors and 8 sophomores to Badin’s NHS chapter.
