KO students inducted into NHS
Keystone Oaks High School inducted 22 students into the National Honor Society (NHS) on Jan. 16. The 2012 NHS inductees included one senior, six juniors and 15 sophomores. Alexandra Ferrari was the senior. Juniors were Collin Azinger, Andrew Bigler, Darren Frederick, Klay Huebner, Nicholas Milkovich and Brandon Pollice. Sophomores were Joe Amadio, Kovid Bhayana, Brittany Bolla, Amber Bonnett, Brian Brosnan, Donald Daube, Amber Palmer, Emily Pelesky, Kobe Phillippi, Jessica Porter, Erica Ragan, Hannah Ranalli, Alyssa Simmons, Haley Tokich and Alaina Turocy.
Established in 1921, the NHS is a recognition program for American high school students who show achievement in scholarship, leadership, service and character. Students are selected for membership through an established school chapter in secondary public and accredited private schools by a five member Faculty Council.
High School Principal Scott Hagy said that this year’s strong showing by so many district students is a reflection of their work ethic and the support they receive from their families. “The National Honor Society induction ceremony is second only to graduation in its importance to our district’s families,” Hagy said. “It is a perfect time to honor the students for all of the hard work they have put in and to recognize their families and their commitment to their children’s education.”
