Mystic Valley Regional Charter School was proud to induct 24 students into the National Honor Society as the school held its 14th annual ceremony at Eastern Avenue on May 23. The student-focused event featured presentations by current senior members of NHS as well as juniors and sophomores, who took the pledge to stand for the organization’s four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and character.
In addition, several colleges annually recognize outstanding juniors with a presentation of a book that is particularly meaningful to said institution in some way. The colleges and universities that presented books were: Boston College, LeMoyne College, Harvard, St. Michael’s College, Suffolk University, Wellesley, Wesleyan, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Yale. Current MVRCS faculty Mr. Martin Boyle (Yale) and Mr. Michael McCarthy (St. Anselm) distributed the books for their respective alma maters.
Under the direction of faculty advisers Mr. Casey McKee and Ms. Colleen Reynolds, a new set of officers was introduced. The crescendo of the event came towards the end as parents of incoming inductees proudly placed the NHS sash on their sons and daughters. Following the family presentations, led by NHS historian Michaela Correale ’19, the newcomers took the pledge and officially became part of the prestigious society.
