Soon after Fr. Ryan’s blessing, current honor society students explained the respective values of the honor societies.  For the NJHS, those values are scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. As for the NEHS, its values are scholarship, responsibility, leadership, and service. Students who have a 3.0 GPA fulfill the scholarship value of each society and are invited to apply for membership, for which they must demonstrate that they embody the other values of each respective society.

After the honor societies were explained, inductees were identified by the ceremonious “tapping” ritual, in which current honor society members go around tapping inductees on their shoulders and inviting them to the main staging area to take their oaths, receive their membership insignia, and sign into the membership ledger.

School president Galvin Deleon Guerrero concluded the ceremony with remarks referring to Jesus’s washing of the feet of the apostles. He said, “In this moment, Jesus, even as the son of God, taught us to be humble, to serve others, and to lead by example.” Deleon Guerrero added, “Likewise, you too must humbly serve as leaders.”
