Finley’s Honor Society Members Get Inducted


Finley Middle School inducted 48 new members into its National Junior Honor Society chapter on June 13 during a candlelighting ceremony.

Under the direction of adviser Kristen Schnall, junior honor society officers lit candles while describing the traits needed to become a member, including scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. The inductees were then called to the stage one by one to receive their certificates of membership, before taking the honor society pledge.

Principal Nelson Iocolano congratulated the students on their induction and explained that by reciting the pledge for the prestigious organization they had committed to upholding the tenants of the society. Iocolano also commended the current members who he said “exemplified the tenants in an extraordinary way.”

“They have committed themselves and our school to the WE Schools initiative after hearing the great works implemented across the globe by the charity Free the Children, along with the inspirational story of its founder,” Iocolano said. “Finley Middle School has committed to combatting hunger both on a local and a global front. Globally they have raised enough money to feed 10 students in Kenya for a year and locally they have opened the Finley Middle School Food Pantry.”
