The North Royalton Middle School (NRMS) Honor Society Induction Ceremony was held on Thursday, September 29. The NRMS Honor Society is an honorary organization for students who have exemplified strong academic achievement, extracurricular participation and community service involvement during their middle school years. To be eligible, students must have earned a 3.5 cumulative grade point average during their fifth and sixth-grade years and the first three quarters of their seventh-grade year. Finally, they had to demonstrate that they followed the “Bear Way” at NRMS through the completion of an essay in addition to application forms during the fourth quarter of their seventh-grade year. The values that make up the “Bear Way” are doing what’s right, doing the best you can, and treating others as you would like to be treated.
The ceremony began with a welcome from NRMS Principal Erin Calabrese, followed by an explanation of the society criteria by Honor Society Committee member Cathy Drescher. NRHS National Honor Society president Isabella Weatherbie and member Varuni Chopra then spoke to the audience and recited the Honor Society pledge. Teacher Denise Romanchok presented the awards to the inductees.
