On Thursday, November 16, at 7:00 p.m. the Lambda Sigma Gamma chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 14 new members during their 83rd Annual Induction Ceremony. The ceremony took place in the Cambridge Central School auditorium and began with a procession of the chapter’s senior members.
Vice-President Jonas Butz began the service with the Pledge of Allegiance. President Helen Mooney welcomed the nearly 220 guests and introduced the four Principles of the Society. Members emphasized the importance of each of the four Principles: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character.
Secretary, Hailey Herrington, and current member Max Hoffer, introduced each new member as senior members escorted them from the audience to their seats on stage. A candle lighting followed the tapping of the new members, and then all members stated their pledge to the Principles of the National Honor Society. Each new member was presented with a National Honor Society membership card and pin.
