|Nederland MSHS Counselor, Aly Shambo|
and Mayor Joe Gierlach pass out certificates
as students sign the book.
Each year, our Town has a tradition of hosting dinner for the inductees, and afterward, I've had the honor of awarding the certificates to students for the past several years. Then, the inductees hand-sign the same book that has been used for decades.
Personally, all I remember about being inducted into the National Honor Society, was seeing my name on a list. I went to a bigger high school than Nederland MS/HS, and I was involved with a lot of other activities. I did not pay much attention to the National Honor Society activities, but I remember making sure my name was on the list. I think I got the pin after basketball practice, and I told my mother about it a week later.
This is the only time in my life, that I can remember making my mother cry. When she realized that I did not invite her to watch me get inducted into the National Honor Society. At the time, I had a lot of other things that were 'more important' in my life.
