National Art Honor Society Induction


With the 2022-2023 school year wrapping up, this year’s new and returning National Art Honor Society members became official at the NAHS Induction Ceremony on Thursday, May 18. The ceremony began in the East Cafeteria to formally induct each member. After that, families and students were given the opportunity to enjoy their students’ artwork in the Media Center at the art show.

After an introductory video and presentation by Mrs. Carola, the NAHS advisor, and the lighting of three symbolic candles by NAHS officers, the induction itself began. With returning seniors seated on the left and new members (both juniors and seniors) seated on the right, each inductee was introduced along with a showcase of five of their best art pieces and given a certificate.

After the ceremony, parents and students were invited to the Media Center to view the art show and enjoy refreshments. Each NAHS member had at least one piece in the art show, and AP Drawing students also got a separate panel dedicated to the artwork they’ve created throughout the year.

Sam Aregood, one of the officers of NAHS, explained that this year “really was a great year for everyone involved in the club.” Sam also said that “[NAHS was] able to accomplish a lot of art-related community service and hosted several school art events!”

One of the many fundraising events hosted by NAHS was the Empty Bowls fundraiser in which all NAHS members each made three bowls and sold four tickets to the event. Each bowl was given out in addition to a bowl of soup to everyone who attended. “It was really fun being able to create the bowls with everyone and then volunteering at the actual event and seeing the bowls get distributed was so cool. It was also just a great way to have a good time while raising money and give back to the community,” said Sam.
