Wallace Middle School Holds National Elementary
Honor Society Induction Ceremony
P. E. Wallace Middle School held their National Elementary Honor Society Induction Ceremony on Thursday, October 18. Thirty-nine 6th graders were inducted as members of the Wallace NEHS Chapter.
Before an audience of family members and teachers, the inductees heard an explanation of the four pillars of NEHS: Leadership, Responsibility, Scholarship, and Service. They received their certificates of membership and recited the NEHS pledge. Mount Pleasant High School National Honor Society member, Alex Vaseleck, served as the guest speaker. He gave them some practical tips for continued academic success including punctuality, perseverance, and humility.
The Wallace NEHS chapter recognized sixth-grade students for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility. The organization seeks to provide meaningful service activities for students in both the school and the community and to develop essential leadership skills in sixth-grade students.

Once inducted, members are required to maintain the same level of performance in academics and responsibility. They are also expected to attend monthly meetings and to participate in other chapter service projects and activities.
