Welcoming The Newest Members of the National Honor Society
Seisen inducts eight new members into the National Honor Society.
On October 19th the Rafaela Maria Porras Chapter of the National Honor Society welcomed eight new members in their 39th Induction Ceremony.
The President of the Seisen chapter of the NHS, Debangi, opened the ceremony.
?I initially joined the NHS as I was interested in how the society treasures the significance of education in empowering people and unites many well-rounded students. Soon, I realised how amazing it was to collaborate with talented individuals through unique events and projects. Now, it has become much more special to me as we attempt to improve the national honour society at Seisen during COVID times. Despite the restrictions, we continue to find ways to give back to the Seisen community. As a new chapter of NHS has begun, I look forward to getting to know the new faces in our society and being part of a much bigger group."
Membership in the Rafaela Maria Porras Chapter of the National Honor Society has been earned by the effective demonstration of the four qualities held high in the esteem of the society.
Leadership, Scholarship, Service, Character
Here are this year's inductees and the messages they shared.
Class of 2023:
Jiyu "I light my candle for 'leadership' as I want to grow further as a leader in the community."
Class of 2022:
Ayame "I light my candle for 'scholarship' because education empowers me."
Riana "I light my candle for ‘service’ as I think that all these characteristics lead to service."
Emilie "I light my candle for ‘character’ because cultivating good character has always been important to me. Character is what makes all of scholarship, leadership, and service possible and sustainable."
Class of 2021:
Luna "I light my candle for ‘scholarship’ because I believe that education provides us with tools to understand the world and make it better."
Mana "I light my candle for ‘service’ because I am passionate about social justice and helping others."

Aisa "I light my candle for ‘character’ because being a person of good character is important to me and it can sustain me through difficult times."
