29 Students Inducted into National Honor Society

Twenty-nine students were inducted into the Peter Rickard Chapter of the National Honor Society during a ceremony held on Thursday, November 29th.

The National Honor Society (NHS) is our nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Induction in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors given to a student by the faculty of Tri-County.

The ceremony was presided over by NHS officers Katie Udell of Medway, President; Ashley Barry of North Attleboro, Vice President; Adrianna Celeste of North Attleboro, Secretary; and Corinne Blasetti of North Attleboro, Treasurer. Current members of the Tri-County National Honor Society were on-hand along with family members of the inductees and school personnel; with NHS President, Katie Udell, acting as the Master of Ceremonies.

During the ceremony, retired Vocational Director, Jean George, was the guest speaker. Jean addressed the inductees encouraging them to be leaders in supporting members of the community who are isolated and in need.
