Forty high school students were inducted into the National Honor Society. Students, families, teachers, administrators and local officials came together for the annual induction ceremony. Joining the district for the academic celebration were Suffolk County Legislators Steven Stern and Louis D’Amaro and Babylon Town Clerk Carol Quirk, who spoke to students about the importance of academic achievement, as well as exhibiting good character throughout their lives.    

National Honor Society Officers described the history of the National Honor Society and its pillars - Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character - articulating the purpose of the organization, which is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in students.

Advisors Annemarie Lenio and Jill Perry-Eising will lead National Honor Society members in community outreach programs during the school year, including tutoring high school students and moderating study groups for Robert Frost Middle School honors math and science students.
