SHS Inducts Students Into National Honor Society

The Syosset High School National Honor Society Thalian Chapter inducted approximately 350 students into the society on Tuesday, Nov. 27 in two separate ceremonies, recognizing the students’ continued academic excellence and commitment to success.

Members of the chamber orchestra, under the direction of Stephanie Merten, performed several selections as the inductees proceeded into the auditorium. Syosset NHS advisor Beth Waschitz and Principal Dr. Giovanni Durante welcomed guests to the ceremony, congratulating all of the inductees on the impressive achievement of joining such a prestigious organization.

Samantha Weiss, president of Syosset’s NHS, shared some examples of the positive impact NHS members have made in the community. Students crossed the stage as Waschitz announced their name, receiving a personalized certificate. Executive board members Joshua Hyman, Sydney Markowitz, Zachary Senzer and Jared Weiss each spoke about the society’s pillars— character, scholarship, leadership and service— before lighting candles representing them.

Students must possess a grade point average of 90 or above and participate in at least two extracurricular activities to be eligible for induction into the NHS.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
