Albany High inducts 66 into National Honor Society

ALBANY, N.Y. (April 22, 2015) -- Sixty-six high-achieving juniors were inducted into Albany High School's Arista Chapter of the National Honor Society on Tuesday.


To be eligible for induction, students must maintain an overall academic average of 89.5 or higher.


The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 to help create a better-rounded student who would be willing to put his or her talents to work serving others in society. Albany High’s Arista Chapter was formed in 1957 and admitted 15 students in its first group of inductees.


Keynote speaker at the induction ceremony was Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. At right, principal Cecily Wilson presents a certificate to a new inductee.
