As I sat on the stage of the MHS Auditorium last Thursday night I couldn't help but smile. My heart was filled with pride as 108 of our best and brightest students were being honored with induction into the Mansfield High School chapter of the National Honor Society. To be a member, these juniors and seniors must provide evidence that they have met the NHS' rigorous standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. All of these students have a cumulative average of 88 or higher and have provided leadership in the school through student government, athletics, or co-curricular programs. However, what was particularly interesting was hearing the diverse array of community service involvement that was detailed as each inductee entered the stage with their faculty sponsor. I heard accomplishments like being a Relay for Life captain, volunteering in the pediatric wing of Norwood Hospital, and even missionary work in Mexico. These untold stories impressed me and really spoke volumes about the character of these fine young men and women. Congratulations to them on this great honor!
