Glassboro High School Hosts Its 81st Annual National Honor Society Ceremony and Inducts 22 New Members


Glassboro High School continued a proud tradition of honoring student scholars on January 27 when it inducted 22 students into the Glassboro Chapter of the National Honor Society. This year marked the 81st Annual Induction Ceremony for the chapter.

The chapter inducts students based on scholarship, character, leadership and service. Those characteristics are known as the four pillars of the NHS. Before students can be considered for membership, they need to have completed four high school semesters and achieved a Grade Point Average of 93 or above.

Dr. Mark Silverstein, superintendent of Glassboro Schools said, “This ceremony recognizes those students who have gone above and beyond in their academic pursuits. In the challenging environment we find ourselves in, excelling academically and being a well rounded student serves not just each individual but the entire Glassboro community. It reminds us all of better days ahead.”

Chapter officers Jillian Smith, president; Joanna Crispin, vice president; and Aviva Foster, secretary/publicist recognized new inductees during the program. New inductees include Mohamed Abdullrahma, Ah'Jah'Nae Barker, On'Yae Barker, Connor Cairns, Tamara Cooper, Emily De La Cruz Hofer, Sy'Asia Everett, Gianni Fowler, Madison Griffin, Alicia Hazeley, Kayvon Johnson, Yusra Khan, Katelyn Kurke, Mayooran Mohanakanthan, Lucas Ngo, Andrew Petrany, Hannah Polillo, Hannah Sheffield, Logan Stockl, Emilee Townsley, Hannah Whitaker, and Ahnyste Woodson.

Current GHS students who were inducted in prior years include the aforementioned chapter officers as well as Meghan Holman, Julianna Menna, Kyra Pinder, Carter Profico, Andrew Ritter, Annabelle Salugao, Arelys Tirado Marrero, Ryan Carter, Abigail Crispin, Anna Holland, Devin Leonard, Nicole Rementer, Brenna Somdahl Sands, and Douglas Tranz Jr. The school’s NJHS adviser is teacher Michele Memis.

New and returning members joined together to recite the NHS pledge: I pledge myself always to seek the light of truth, to hold scholarly habits, to engage in worthy service, and to lead forward in all things that shall advance the welfare of the school.

In addressing all members, GHS Principal Monique Stowman-Burke remarked, “I want to congratulate you on behalf of the Glassboro High School Administrative Team. Your hard work and dedication are truly remarkable, and it is an honor to be able to witness your achievements and watch you grow into the amazing young men and women that you are becoming.”

The GHS Select Choir performed the National Anthem virtually as part of the ceremony. This year’s guest speaker was teacher Tina Spadafora, who coordinates the school’s Interact Club, a service-based organization. Spadafora herself was a member of the NHS during her high school years and remains active in community service.
