At the high school’s 54th annual National Honor Society induction ceremony, 49 juniors and seniors were recognized for their accomplishments and efforts that earned them membership in this prestigious organization.

After a short musical performance by the Deer Park High School String Quartet, the society’s officers – President Peter Demopoulos, Vice President Nicholas DiModica, Secretary Kalvin Guyer and Treasurer Jasmine Perez – led the new inductees into the auditorium, followed by the current members. 

National Honor Society adviser Seth Margolin offered a welcome to  the students and their parents, followed by remarks from Demopoulos, Principal James Cummings and Associate Principal Brian Norton.

“Tonight is a celebration of Deer Park students who are exemplars in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character,” said Norton in his speech. Addressing the new inductees, he told them, “As the role models of Deer Park, your daily endeavors and successes have not gone unnoticed.”

The NHS officers then spoke, each describing the qualities that serve as the standards for all National Honor Society members, which are demonstrated through each new inductee. Following the reading of the NHS pledge, the new members were sworn in with a candle-lighting ceremony.

“We were all happy and proud to be a part of this important event in the lives of these students,” said Margolin.
