On Tuesday March 29th the McAuley Chapter of National Honor Society (NHS) at Mount Mercy Academy hosted its annual induction at the Mercy Center Auditorium.  Nineteen new junior members were inducted, joining 12 seniors who were previously inducted.  Membership in the National Honor Society is based on excellence in knowledge, scholarship, leadership, service, and character.  The National Honor Society was started in 1921 and there are over 20,000 chapters world-wide.  

The senior NHS members who were installed previously explained the history of National Honor Society and described what the five pillars of NHS mean.  Co-Moderator Douglas Webster presented the candidates for membership and Head of School Michele Melligan draped the NHS stoles on the inductees.  

Ten Buffalo residents were inducted.  Juniors Megan Amicone, Brenna Berhalter, Bridget Dougherty, Alexis Garmong, Elizabeth Godsoe, Catherine Klodzinski, Abigail Mailloux, Joelle Poleto, Jillian Schneck and Madison Serafini joined the McAuley Chapter of National Honor Society.

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
