In a special candle-lighting service, the Pottstown High School National Honor Society inducted 16 new members into the society.
“This was another successful induction of some of Pottstown's most talented and dedicated students. I look forward to working with them in the coming years to positively impact our students, district, and community,” said Sponsor Jennifer Mohr.

During the ceremony, the four pillars of National Honor Society were described by students:
Asgar Ali – Scholarship;
Mitchell Aquino – Service;
London Aquino – Leadership; and
Ariana Garcia – Character.
In order to be considered for membership, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 93% or above and fill out a personal data sheet that describes how they demonstrate their participation in the four pillars of National Honor Society.
A faculty panel then reviews each student’s information and makes recommendations for those who should be invited to become members. Membership requires a continued demonstration of living up to the four pillars of honor society.
High School Principal Mrs. Danielle McCoy addressed the students and parents, “The honor bestowed on National Honor Society recipients is not easily earned. It isn’t enough to have excellent grades. Excellent grades only earn them the right to apply for membership. The students inducted also demonstrated stellar accomplishments in the areas of leadership, character, and service. It is not
an accolade to be easily dismissed. It is a positive reflection on the students, their families, our school, and our community. These students represent the academic and well-rounded future leaders of our community and follow in the footsteps of outstanding PHS alumni."
