Mr. Pirone
The 2024-2025 National Honor Society Members

Dominic Liptak is a junior at Struthers High School. He is a new inductee in the National Honor Society. 

National Honor Society, also known as NHS, is a selected group of students who put time and effort in and out of the classroom. This year, there are 28 new junior inductees. The previous year’s members, the current seniors, do the process of “tapping in,” where they go around and do something fun with a carnation. If you receive a rose, then that symbolizes that you have made it into the program.

National Honor Society is a prestigious organization that students are able to be a part of. 

“National Honor Society is a group that students get inducted into every year for their service in and out of school. It is an honor that only dedicated students can get into that provides you some benefits,” says the junior. 

Getting into NHS is not a simple task. There are a few requirements that you need to meet in order to get into National Honor Society. 

There are a few requirements that each student needs to meet in order to become a member.  

“To get into NHS, you have to do 20 hours worth of service points which are volunteer hours that don’t receive pay and aren’t household chores, and really just show up to the meetings that you are asked to be at. You also need a minimum of a 3.5 gpa,” says the student. 

To finalize that you made it into NHS, there is a ceremony that takes place in the fieldhouse. During the ceremony, you go through a few different processes to show that you are an official member.

There is a process that the new inductees go through during the ceremony.

“At the ceremony, inductees sit in chairs on the gym floor as their names are announced and bios are read, and each person walks to receive their certificate, to sign a book, and to take a candle that everyone will eventually light,” says the member. 

Liptak is honored to be in the program. NHS provides you with many benefits and opportunities. Some include that it shows up on your transcript, which many colleges like, and it also gives you opportunities for scholarships.

The star student recommends cutting down on procrastination when it comes to volunteering. 

“I would say don’t procrastinate on your service points. I did that, and I was stressed in the last couple of weeks trying to get them all completed and filled in on my form,” says Liptak.
