National Junior Honor Society Induction


Finley’s National Junior Honor Society inducted 27 students during a traditional candle-lighting ceremony on May 13 at Wunsch Auditorium.

The ceremony, led by adviser Kristen Muratore, began with NJHS officers lighting candles while describing the traits needed to become a member, which include scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. The inductees were then called to the stage individually to receive their certificates of membership, before taking the honor society pledge.

Principal Nelson Iocolano congratulated the inductees, reminding them of their commitment to uphold the tenets of the National Junior Honor Society. He also challenged them to make their mark on the world.

“I congratulate you on your achievements and I thank you in advance for what I know you will do to make us proud in the years to come,” he said.

Superintendent of Schools Maria Rianna and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel also joined the students and their families at the ceremony.
