“I will in my life, to the best of my ability through my talents in art, help to create a more beautiful world for myself, for humankind, and for all living things.”  

Like others before them, fifteen Holmdel High School students took this pledge as they were inducted into Holmdel High School’s chapter of the National Art Honor Society. Imagine if the world took that oath and lived by it, how harmonious that could be.

 “The arts are an important part of a complete Holmdel education and we are proud of all of our student artists,” said Superintendent Dr. Robert McGarry, “with beautiful and thought-provoking art works exhibited throughout our schools, it is clear that NAHS members take their pledge to help create a more beautiful world very seriously.”  

Sponsored by the National Art Education Association (NAEA), the honor society was founded at the national level to inspire and recognize students who have shown outstanding ability and interest in the Visual Arts. The program supports Art teachers and students in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and in bringing art education to the attention of the school and community. The NAEA is a professional association founded in 1947 in the United States. It is the world's largest professional art education association.
