The National Honor Society Induction ceremony was held April 4 at Salisbury High School. Over 30 students were inducted into the Salisbury chapter of NHS. In order to be a part of NHS, students must demonstrate their qualifications through portraying the values of scholarship, leadership, service and character – the four pillars of NHS. Members of NHS complete 15 hours of community service a year, maintain a grade average of 93 and are available to peer tutor. Congratulations!
