The new members bring the total number of students in the PAHS chapter to 34.

Kaitlyn Cressley, NHS historian, gave a brief explanation of the group’s history and foundation. The other four officers — Cassandra Cook, president, Tori Brooks, vice-president; Kelsey Young, secretary, Sarajane Depp-Hutchinson, treasurer, and top NHS scholar, Sierra Milton — explained the four pillars of NHS: Scholarship, leadership, service and character.

From there, new members lit candles during the lighting and recognition ceremony.

After that, Alex Voris performed “This is the Moment.”

Principal David London then made closing remarks and congratulated the new members on their induction.
