New inductees took a pledge led by Zukowski and received certificates.  Amy Wysocki also issued a challenge to students to continue to uphold the pillars of honor society in their school and their community.  

Zukowski then recognized Dr. Jack Giannattasio, chemistry and physics teacher, for his impact on the students. Every year, one teacher is recognized for their dedication to student learning.  Zukowski spoke about Giannattasio’s ability to make the most complex topics clear and engaging for the students in addition to always being there for additional support and guidance.  

The evening closed with “Words of Inspiration” from member Nicole Cassano who reiterated the importance of the pillars and the potential for students to make a difference in the world. Marciano was also honored as this is her last year as NHS advisor.

The evening was attended by parents, teachers, administrators, and Board of Education members. “The induction ceremony and dinner was a great way to see our most academically talented juniors and seniors being honored.  This honor is just one of many for them as we anticipate them continuing to have great success moving forward,” said Superintendent Ed Grande.

The 24 new inductees join 19 existing members.  To be eligible for National Honor Society, a student must have a weighted cumulative GPA of 4.15 or above. At that point, students are asked to complete the application process demonstrating examples of the pillars.
