Annie Sims Elementary School held its annual National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) induction ceremony on Thursday, November 2. Thirty-one students in the 4th grade became members of the Sims chapter of NEHS before an audience of proud family members, teachers, administrators, and friends. NEHS recognizes 4th-grade students for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility. 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.
New members Katherine Cluley and Miguel Vasquez led the pledges to the United States and Texas flags, and Hyleigh Howard invoked them. Students and audience members listened as chapter officers described the essential characteristics of an NEHS member. The officers for the 2023-2024 school year are President Aaron Garcia, Vice President Pyper Shepard, Secretary Alexie Moreno, and Treasurer Jacie Williams.
Annie Sims Principal Jeannie Pat Jaggers thanked the family members for the involvement they show in the education of their students and praised the students on their achievements. Guest speaker Jeffery Crabb discussed the book The Little Engine That Could and told the inductees that believing in themselves and never giving up is the key to future success.
