Homewood-Flossmoor High School’s National Honor Society (NHS) inducted 115 juniors and sophomores into its ranks during a special ceremony Monday, April 24.
NHS officers addressed students. President Sarah Weiner spoke on leadership; Vice President Amber Haywood spoke on the quality of one’s character; and Treasurer Malika Toguem spoke on service. The guest speaker was H-F alumna Susan Page, former U.S. ambassador to South Sudan.
