E.C. Brice Elementary inducts students into the National Elementary Honor Society
Twenty-five E.C. Brice Elementary School 4th graders became members of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) as the Brice Chapter held their induction ceremony on October 26. First, students and audience members listened to explain what it means to be a member of NEHS. Then, chapter officers described the essential characteristics of an NEHS member.
Mount Pleasant High School senior Connelly Cowan was the guest speaker for the event. Cowan, who attended E.C. Brice and was President of the Brice NEHS when she was a 4th grader, congratulated the students on achieving membership in NEHS. In addition, she encouraged them to be leaders on their campus through their commitment to schoolwork, community service, and responsibility.
To be a member of NEHS, a student must meet or exceed the national minimum standard of a cumulative average grade of 85%. They also judge students on their level of personal responsibility. Once inducted, members are required to maintain the same level of performance in academics and responsibility. They are also required to attend monthly meetings and to participate in other chapter service projects and activities.
NEHS recognizes 4th-grade students for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility. In addition, the organization seeks to provide meaningful service activities for students to both the school and the community and to develop essential leadership skills in elementary school students.

Brice Elementary School NEHS Inductees are Spencer Anderson, Jaylee Avilez, Noah Branton, Jeremiah Campbell, Gonzalo Cardenas, Kaylee Delacruz, Arabella Diaz, Ivan Flores (Treasurer), Aiden Hendricks, Lily Henry, Mariah Hummell, Tiana James, Ariadnna Martinez (Secretary), Juan Mercado, Miguel Moreno, Aldo Orona (Vice President), Boone Priefert (President), Tucker Priefert, Hailey Roge, Axel Sanchez, Treniti Shepard, Keondre Shine, Caleb Townson, Jonathan Williams, and Daniel Wilson.
