This year is the national centennial of the National Honor Society. The organization has established a reputation for excellence among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and residents of the school community. This reputation is the result of years of commitment on the part of everyone involved. Through NHS chapter service activities, members maintain and extend the qualities that won them selection. Cresta Mellon and Kate West are the teacher advisors of the NRHS National Honor Society.
Each year, a member of the faculty is invited to speak at the ceremony.  This year, Kahle Miller spoke to the importance of being honorable in all of our endeavors.
“I am proud of our students and how they persisted in maintaining focus on their academics through difficult times,” said Principal Sean Osborne, North Royalton High School. “Congratulations to all our current members and new inductees of the NRHS National Honor Society.”
