REESE — The first National Elementary Honors Society (NEHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) induction ceremony for St. Elizabeth School in Reese was Friday, Nov. 5, in the church.
Inducted were fourth graders Brianna Corrion, Adam Fisher and Tommy Papesh; fifth grader Rachel Boensch; sixth graders Zack Parman, Carly Schluckbier, Ryan Fisher and Lauren Hecht; seventh graders Erin Boensch and Jill Barber; and eighth grader Kasey Curtis.
To become members of the National Elementary and National Junior Honor Society, NEHS advisor Amy Bojo and NJHS advisor Dawn Papesh recognized responsible, caring students who showed high academic achievement (at least a 3.5 grade-point average) last year, who have shown leadership skills and have been involved in service to the community and those hurting or in need. These values sustained by the Honors Society are the values teachers and staff want students to have.
“Following the example of our patroness, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, our students reach out to those hurting and in need,” said Principal Gabby Marguery. “The Honors Society will give them more opportunities to enhance their education and support their spiritual development, while striving for excellence in their academic achievement and developing leadership skills to be the leaders of our Church in the future.”
