National Honor Society Offers Opportunities for 64 New Members

The high school inducted 64 new members into the National Honor Society during a Dec. 10 ceremony in the school’s auditorium, led by NHS President Amar Qasir.

Other speakers included NHS adviser Seth Margolin, Principal Charles Cobb and high school guidance counselor Bianca Benevides. The inductees were also congratulated by Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Suffolk County legislators Susan Berland, Tom Donnelly and Steven Flotteron. After the oath of membership was administered, the organization’s current members joined with the new inductees for a traditional candle lighting ceremony.

“The National Honor Society has really helped me make so many new friends as well as giving me the chance to help the school and the community,” said senior Julianna Gentile, the Society’s vice president.

“I’m really excited about joining the National Honor Society and getting to tutor and do some community service,” said senior Domenico Recine. “It offers a lot of opportunities.”

“I am proud to see that we have an influx of new members with so many prior accomplishments,” said Qasir. “I am optimistic about what the future holds, and I know they will accomplish a lot more as time goes on.”
