Five seniors and 23 juniors at Martinsville High School will be inducted this Friday into the National Honor Society.
The school will host a virtual ceremony at 6 p.m. Friday to celebrate the achievement of the inductees. The ceremony will be posted on Martinsville City Public Schools’ Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The ceremony will feature four seniors inducted in 2020: Antwone Callendar, James Li, Ben Jarrett, and Kellene Wotring.
The students will welcome the inductees and discuss the principles of the society, which looks upon education as a combination of four tenants of life: character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
“We are happy and proud to celebrate this important event in the lives of these students,” said MHS Principal Aji Dixon. “Their accomplishments and efforts have allowed them to be a member of such a prestigious organization.”
“We are very proud of our National Honor Society students and their accomplishments,” said MCPS Superintendent Dr. Zeb Talley. “The pandemic has created many challenges, but our students continue to excel in academics. I feel that these students will make a great contribution to the educational field. They have a proven record of overcoming adversity.”
