NHS inducts newest members

Fifty-seven students were inducted into the Grayslake North chapter of National Honor Society last week.

GNHS held a ceremony for the new NHS members of 2022. Some of the new inductees include juniors Jessie Bennett and Morgan Flynn. A member of the NHS last year was Andres Morales-Gomez. All three NHS students are student athletes, successful students, and know how to go beyond the expectations.
Andres Morales helped around the community willingly and also for the NHS program. When he found out about the program, he instantly knew he wanted to apply to be a member of the National Honor Society. Morales’ biggest inspiration is his family.

“I want to make my family proud. I made sure I was going to be the first person in my family to go to college, and I’m going to do it in an outstanding way,” Morales said.

Morales is doing just that. He’s continuing his lacrosse career at Illinois Wesleyan University where he is also going to major in business.

Jessie Bennett was recently inducted to NHS. She was really ecstatic to receive such a prestigious award. Bennett said the hardest part about NHS is the 200 word essay required for every applicant.

“The essay was really stressful. I made sure everything was perfect, and I probably read it 100 times,” Bennett said.

Students with a cumulative 3.4 GPA are invited to apply for NHS.

Erin Wise is one of the sponsors of NHS. “The pillars of NHS are about service, scholarships, and really reaching out to one’s community and being more than someone who gets good grades and earns good marks and does their work,” Wise explained.

Wise shared that being a member of NHS is something students should be proud of. It’s an award that catches colleges’ eyes. Mrs. Wise also mentioned how she was in NHS herself.
