Six seniors became members of the Queensbury High School chapter of the National Honor Society, joining the 70 current members in a tapping ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 15.
Students inducted include Abigail Buck, Nicholas Giambrone, Shawn Levack, Sandra Senpeteri, Christian VanGuilder and Evan Wright.
“Education is not just about grades and test scores,” said Queensbury High School Principal Andrew Snide. “It is also about character and leadership. The National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes and encourages outstanding high school students who exhibit excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character.”
Superintendent Kyle Gannon recognized the achievements of the students being inducted and told them they should be proud to become members of the society.
“Seniors, it’s certainly your hard work and your dedication that got you here,” Gannon said. “But another reason why you’re sitting here today is thanks to the love, support, guidance and influence of your parents and guardians.”
He applauded the students for working hard to become well-rounded people.
“It means that you not only excel in academics, but you participate in extracurriculars and you’re involved in your community. But also, to me, being well rounded means that you‘ve put in the hard work and effort. You are dedicated to being your best selves.”
Snide congratulated the six seniors on their well-deserved honor.
“I have no doubt you will continue to excel and make us proud,” Snide said. “I look forward to seeing all that you will accomplish in the future.”
