On Tuesday, March 31, four Lisbon High School students were inducted into the Worumbo Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS). New Class of 2009 inductees were Tyler Campbell, son of Laura and Mark Campbell of Lisbon; Devon Hinckley son of Regina Hinckley of Virginia and Scott and Joyce Hinckley of Lisbon Falls, and Caitlin Ramsay, daughter of Sue and Scott Ramsay of Lisbon Falls. One member of the Class of 2010, Ashley Beaulieu, daughter of Traci and James Beaulieu of Durham, was also inducted.

Current Class of 2009 National Honor Society members are Cameron Bubar (secretary), Brian Craig, Laura Giraldo, Sierra Guay (president), Mathew Hardison (projects assistant), Nicholas Jones, Kerstin Kenny, Erik Metzger, Stevanie Roy (vice president), Megan Samson, and Stephanie Smith (historian). Jennifer Chick, Maegan Dupre, and Kyle Finkle from the Class of 2010 are also members of the Society.

National Honor Society students must achieve high levels of Scholarship, Leadership, Character and Service. As each inductee was introduced the service and time given over the years by each new inductee was shared by Mrs. Brenda McKee, the National Honor Society Advisor. Mrs. McKee shared “Each inductee has given in a different way and has achieved so many different goals in their life. These are four individuals who have served their school and community.” NHS President Sierra Guay, assisted the inductees with the NHS Pledge and asked each student to “Light the Candle of Knowledge”. The inductees were presented with their membership cards. Parents of the new inductees were invited to present their children with their National Honor pin.

Brian Craig had the honor of introducing the keynote speaker for Induction Ceremony, Mrs. Monica Millhime, Community Resource Coordinator for the Lisbon School Department. In his introductory comments, Brian shared “Mrs. Millhime’s dedication and many hours of service going above and beyond for the school and the community” has inspired him, and the members of the community, in a way that will last a lifetime.

Mrs. Millhime congratulated the new inductees and shared her thoughts on what it means to be in NHS and the real meaning of honor. “As a member of National Honor Society YOU have created your own carbon footprint that will remain with you throughout life,” commented Mrs. Millhime. “From this night forward, your footprints in society will hold the core values of personal integrity, respect and dignity. Your walk in life will have more of a bounce in the steps to your future and the leadership roles that await you. You’ll hold you’re head a little higher because you are honor bound to stand taller for the order of ethics and character. Your behavior will be recognized for its distinction of your reputation with family, teachers, friends and your service to the greater community. Your attitude toward life and all of its challenges will be defined by the continued strength of your moral character built on your sound foundation as a life-long learner and scholar.”

Once inducted into National Honor Society, students are required to keep grades to an 88 point average, and are required to do at least 15 hours of community service each year continuing their growth with scholarship, leadership, character, and service. One remains a National Honor Society member for life, following in the footsteps of many member of the LHS faculty.

After the ceremony, a reception was served by Mrs. Lhu Jones, mother of Nick Jones. Congratulations to all new inductees!
