58 Inducted into NHS

The Memphis University School chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 58 members from the junior and senior classes in a ceremony Friday, March 25. See a photo album of the event HERE.
Dr. David Jackson, chair of the selection committee, welcomed students and families to the ceremony before Headmaster Pete Sanders spoke, recalling the previous night’s faculty portrait unveiling of Mr. Vince Mutzi, Spanish instructor at MUS from 1970-2008. Sanders credited Mutzi for his contributions to NHS as he was selection committee chair for 24 years.

Senior members addressed the audience on the four pillars of the National Honor Society, lighting candles to correspond with each trait: Simeon Betapudi on scholarship, Kyler Herring on leadership, Coleman Whitehead on character, and Reece Needham on service.

Current NHS members tapped the new members, and Assistant Headmaster Barry Ray presented them with certificates. After the Headmaster’s Charge from Sanders, members and their guests attended a reception in the Dining Hall.

Membership in the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors a high school student can attain. In selecting the honorees, a committee considers juniors and seniors who have at least a 3.50 cumulative weighted GPA. Evaluating student activity forms and leadership/service questionnaires prepared by the candidates as well as faculty recommendations and evaluations, the committee looks for evidence of extraordinary scholarship, character, leadership, and service while at MUS.
