Indiana Connections Academy recently inducted more than 60 students into its National Honor Society (NHS) for the 2020-2021 school year. Included in the NHS class is Madison Holmes, grade 11, from Newburgh, Ind. As a full-time, online public school, Indiana Connections Academy held an online induction ceremony allowing students to recite the NHS pledge and be recognized.

The induction recognizes high school students in grades 11 through 12 who have demonstrated the four pillars of NHS: everyday scholarship, service, leadership and character. Qualifications for membership include:

Everyday Scholarship — Students make a commitment to learning and growing on an educational path, stemming from the desire to contribute to this world in a positive way by

  • building on one’s own knowledge, skills and talent.
  • Everyday Service — This involves seeking out and engaging in meaningful acts of service and calls for a “service mindset.”
  • Everyday Leadership — Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers and idea contributors. Everyday leadership builds upon everyday service.
  • Everyday Character — Students of good everyday character are perseverent, respectful and honest and value diverse cultures and build relationships that reflect love of self and concern for others.

“Being inducted into the National Honor Society serves as an extraordinary recognition for students,” said Jennifer Osburn, advisor of the National Honor Society at Indiana Connections Academy. “Membership in NHS lays the groundwork for lifelong success and offers students a unique opportunity to prepare for college or career.”
