Fourteen to be inducted into National Honor Society

Triton Regional High School will induct 14 juniors and seniors into the National Honor Society tomorrow during a ceremony at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. Superintendent Christopher Farmer and Principal Kathryn Dawe will address parents, students and the night’s guest speaker, high school English teacher and track coach Joseph Colbert.

Inductees are Sam Auwerda, Michaela Dunn, Laura Frackiewiecz, Henryk Jankowski, Nicole Indingaro, Jonathan Kovach, Julie McGrath, Jason Plumer, Alexa Reilly, Casey Ross, Devon Shuman, Madison Solomon, Madison Williams and Michael Woodbury.

Students are invited to apply for the National Honor Society based on their grade point average, student adviser Kathy Norton said. Then, they have to complete an extensive application and receive high recommendations from six of their teachers from the previous year. Students are evaluated on academics, character, leadership and community service involvement.

“We are extremely proud of all these students,” Norton said. “This is quite an accomplishment.”
