Five new members were inducted into the Midland chapter of the National Honor Society on Oct. 28. 

Arianna Hacke, Carson Hunter, Jensen Orr, Callie Petersen, and Hope Saroka were invited onto the Midland stage, along with their parents, to take the national oath and join the prestigious organizations. 

Prior to each new member taking the pledge, the current members laid out the responsibilities they were entrusted to follow. 

“In addition to the strong academic records, out chapter members are leaders in many student aorganization and community service projects,” Shianne Rockwell, Midland NHS, said. 

Members then talked about the various pillars that make up the National Honor Society. Kristina Agnistch and Taylor Bahnsen talked about character. Agnistch also talked about the NHS emblem. Alex Smith talked about scholarship. Hannah Chase talked about service. Shianne Rockwell spoke about leadership. 

After taking the oath, the new members got to light candles. As Midland NHS adviser Stephanie Kaftan stated, “The light represents your willingness to lead others toward educational opportunities.” 

Principal Carol Guenther served as the guest speaker. She encouraged all Midland students to strive for educational success, to keep trying when something doesn’t come naturally, and to learn from their mistakes.
