Poland Seminary High School National Honors Society inducted 68 students on Feb. 13.
The induction event, which is a candlelight ceremony, was planned by students and their advisor Anne Marie Hurdley.
Hurdley said students were inducted based on the qualities of character, scholarship, service and leadership.
“The newly inducted students displayed all these characteristics through many hours of community service,” Hurdley said.
Students performed a variety of charitable actions, ranging from 30-100 hours, according to Hurdley.
Inductees are also required to have a 3.5 GPA or higher.
“These new inductees now will continue with their community service in order to make our town a better and more beautiful place,” Hurdley said.
High school students took on leadership roles in the organization, including group president, Stephen Bannon and vice president Galena Lopuchovsky.
“With the help of the officers and senior members, the celebration for new members was a success,” Hurdley said.
