Congratulations to the newest members of The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR) National Honor Society chapter. The eight inductees, which included students from 10th, 11th, and 12th grade, took the oath of membership last night during the virtual National Honor Society International Induction Ceremony. These students are recognized for their scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
The Montessori School of Raleigh was proud to be invited to participate in the “National Honor Society International Induction Ceremony: Celebrating 100 Years” event on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. This anniversary event brought more than a million students from chapters around the world to celebrate the service and leadership of the National Honor Society over the past 100 years. Click here for more about the event, including information about keynote speaker Common, Academy Award-, Golden Globe-, Emmy-, and Grammy-winning artist, actor, author, and activist. Some of those who attended the ceremony on April 28 noted the powerful message delivered by Common in which he reminded us that "Every step is an achievement, even if you feel you are going backwards."
The newly-inducted Honor Society members join MSR's current members bringing the number of members in the MSR chapter to 17 students. In its first year, the MSR chapter worked with Warm Up America, crocheting 7" x 9" rectangles which were donated for making blankets for people in need. The group also re-established a three-bin composting system at MSR's middle school on MSR's Brier Creek Campus. This year, the group sponsored the first ever MLK Day of Service in January, engaging all Upper School students in service activities at the school and in the wider community.
Congratulations to our new National Honor Society members.
