NHS Induction Ceremony 2023

Niles West students were inducted into the National Honor Society (NHS) in a ceremony held on Tuesday, November 7. Friends and family gathered to celebrate these students on their achievements. NHS aims to recognize students with not only academic excellence, but also students who seek to help others in their community. Its four values are scholarship, service, leadership and character. Members possess these qualities through their service.

“NHS is a group of students who serve their community through volunteering and fundraising, while also displaying academic excellence and the best character. Our goal is to give back to our community, and we hope to accomplish that through various events by the end of the year,” senior and NHS President Asma Patel said.

Going into the ceremony, Patel had high hopes for the night.

“I’m a little nervous because of the size of the crowd and having the pressure that comes with having to speak in front of them. However, I’m excited because tonight is about honoring and recognizing the achievements of so many hard working students, and I’m so glad I get to be part of that,” Patel said.

Being a member of NHS calls for lots of hard work, but serving the role as the president is a very important role. “Being president is a huge honor, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility. All four of us leaders have to do our best to accomplish our goal and facilitate collaboration within NHS,” Patel said.

College and Career Counselor and NHS sponsor Daniel Gin reflects on the night.

“The induction ceremony was great. 90 Niles West students were inducted into the Niles West Chapter of the National Honor Society. Asma Patel’s presidential speech was inspirational,” Gin said.

Overall, the night was filled with enjoyment and pride and for the students apart of NHS, it will be a night they will never forget.

“I enjoyed being a part of the ceremony, walking across the stage, receiving my certificate and rose, and seeing the faces of proud parents and family in the audience. It was exciting to be a part of something that holds so much importance at West and I’m proud to be apart of NHS, representing the school along with the other outstanding members,” senior Emily Pham said.
