On Thursday, March 8th, the Curley community assembled in the Suehle Auditorium to celebrate Mass and to witness the induction of 1 senior and 32 juniors into the Lawrence Cardinal Shehan Chapter of the National Honor Society.
Fr. Nick Rokitka OFM Conv., Theology Instructor, was the main celebrant and homilist. He spoke about living the Christian life by striving for positive things (like service to others) instead of simply avoiding negative actions (like “Thou shall not kill.”) Junior Adam Peck proclaimed the first reading and junior Kyrian Elekwachi led the intercessions. The Curley Choir and the Praise Band provided music for the liturgy.
The Induction Ceremony occurred after communion.
Principal Brian Kohler introduced the ceremony and welcomed the guests. Senior Nathan Jarmer, NHS President, explained the emblem of the National Honor Society as seniors Robbie Commodari, Jacob Schwaab, Kyle Cappucci and Leonard Willis lit candles for the four attributes of the NHS: Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character.
The NHS Faculty Council was introduced: Mr. Jamie Long ’98, Chair, Mr. Michael Demarco, Mr. Phil Forte, Ms. Bridget Sica, Mr. Mark Muth ’09.
As the names of the inductees were called, Mr. Long invested each student with the blue NHS stole and Ms. Sica pinned the NHS emblem on the stole.
The new NHS members are:
Seniors: Harold Anuebunwa
Juniors: Holden Ayd, Parker Boomer, Nicholas Bosi, Connor Chaikowsky, Jack Davis, Anthony Dragisics, Connor Draper, Alexander Dvorak, Kyrian Elekwachi, Matthew Giannaccini, Cameron Hanger, Julius Kennedy, Tobi Majekodunmi, Aiden McDonnell, Dezmon Myers, Adam Peck, Wyatt Peters, Matthew Pilkus, Christopher Potter, William Ryan, Tristan Rondholz, Randall Rykiel, Michael Sacha, Joseph Schlee, Jacob Serio, Jorge Silveira, Thomas Skrynecki, Jordan Stroud, Luke Tollen, Sean Walls, Brayden Wise, Kollin Wisniewski.
The new members then spoke the NHS Pledge, led by Nathan Jarmer ’18.
