Mount Royal Academy welcomed eight more students into membership of The Saint Thomas Aquinas Chapter of the National Honor Society, in a ceremony held at the school on February 21. Members were selected by a council comprised of faculty members for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Adrianna Kenyon, Maria Klucinec, Miriam Caveney, Matthew Caveney, Vivian Wok, Rebekah Thibault, Ziqing (Kelly) Wang and Maria Lucia Fuentes Forera met all of the requirements necessary to obtain this honor. As part of their induction and election into office, the students must collaborate on a community service project to be completed by the end of the school year. The students must also remain in good standing in all four criteria to remain in the National Honor Society.
“As advisor of our chapter, I am looking forward to the growth of each of our new members and the chapter as a whole, as well as its affect on the entire student body,” said Dr. Mary Bellino, Faculty Advisor. “Striving for excellence in everything one does is the key to true joy. I congratulate our newly inducted members and I challenge them to not only continue with their efforts, but to encourage others to do so as well.”
The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in more than 60 percent of the nation's high schools and since its inception in 1929; millions of students have been selected for membership.
Mount Royal Academy is a private Catholic school nestled in the hills of New Hampshire’s Dartmouth - Lake Sunapee Region. Since 1994 the faculty, families and friends of Mount Royal have strived to provide not only a quality education to the children of our community, but most importantly a formation in Christian faith and morals. What began as an elementary school, grades Kindergarten through eight, has grown to include a preschool with three and four year old programs and a liberal arts college preparatory High School.
