National Honor Society Welcomes 38 New MTHS Members

May 31, 2014 at 4:00 AM

MONTVILLE, NJ – Thirty-eight juniors of the class of 2015 were inducted into the Montville Township High School [MTHS] Chapter of the National Honor Society on May 27.

Before an audience of family and peers, the inductees pledged to uphold the basic tenets of the ninety-three year old organization.

“I will be true to the principles for which it stands,” the scholars recited. “And I will maintain and encourage high standards of scholarship, service, leadership and character.”

To become a member of the National Honor Society, candidates had to complete a rigorous application process. To meet the criteria of Scholarship, they each needed a 3.75, or better, grade point average. In addition, each applicant had to demonstrate Service, Leadership and Character.

“Only one of these is quantifiable,” noted Superintendent, Dr. Paul Fried, during the ceremony. “And that is your grade point average. But, from my perspective, it is the other three characteristics that matter most. From my perspective, it is your choices in service, leadership and character that truly define who you are, and who you will become.”

Principal Douglas Sanford echoed that sentiment, “We are here to celebrate the choices and, in some cases, the sacrifices, you have made so far on your journey through life.”

MTHS National Honor Society [NHS] advisors, Mary Gormley and Catherine Lomauro, presented certificates to inductees. After receiving a certificate, each inductee signed the official NHS book and lit a candle as a symbolic gesture which represents the organization’s core values.

The Spring 2014 Inductees were: Samantha Bennett, Diana Blasi, Nicole Cheng, Leigh Deitz, Paige Hammell, Minki Hong, Elaine Huang, Justin Huang, Amy Jeun, Allison Kayne, Rebecca Korovin, Matthew Kruger, Genevieve Lake, Bradley LeFebvre, Alexandra Lerman, Brittany Liebes, Stephanie Maggio, Thomas Marabondo, Julia Marks, Andrew Meyers, Byung chul Min, Nicole Philip, Margish Ramani, Henry Russnow, Pujan Shah, Claire Sullivan, William Sun, Steven Tarr, Daniel Toren Sarah Torres, Adin Vashi, Asrita Vattikonda, Shweta Vazhappilly, Noah Weinflash, Adam Wolfson, Daniel Xia, Eunice You, and Jessica Zhang.

Beckerman’s Theory of Everything

This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...
