Kenmore East, Kenmore West Induct 109 Students Into National Honor Society
More than 100 students from Kenmore East High School and Kenmore West High School have been inducted into the National Honor Society for their academic achievements and contributions to the school communities.
To qualify for the NHS, students had to demonstrate the four NHS pillars: scholarship, character, leadership and service. Students had to maintain a grade point average of 90 percent or higher through their junior year and articulate their service to the school and community, an excellent record of behavior in and out of school, and leadership roles.
The Kenmore East High School National Honor Society, led by advisors Peggy Lucero and Wendy Cox, inducted 56 new members during a candle-lighting induction ceremony. The guest speaker was Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District Board of Education President Dr. Jill O’Malley who has contributed her time and effort in service for the community and serves as an outstanding example for the new NHS members. Jeff Diegelman was named honorary member and also gave a heartfelt and meaningful speech.
The Kenmore West High School National Honor Society, led by advisors Lisa Davidson and Kim Reidell-Maczka, inducted 53 new members during a candle-lighting induction ceremony.
