Wyandanch Memorial High School’s National Honor Society welcomes new inductees

Wyandanch Memorial High School’s National Honor Society proudly came together with families, friends and community members in the Warren Fuller Auditorium for the induction of nine new members to the chapter.

National Honor Society Vice President Ashly Polanco-Tejada welcomed those in attendance and introduced the keynote speaker Carlos Diaz Sanchez, National Honor Society President and Class of 2024 valedictorian.

“The National Honor Society has shown me that with a strong dedication and commitment to learning you can achieve great things,” said Diaz Sanchez. “The National Honor Society is an important part of my educational journey and all the academic success I have achieved so far.”

The newest inductees joined in the traditional National Honor Society candle lighting ceremony and signed the official membership register. National Honor Society members Tania Reyes, Christopher Turnier, Simone Chippy and Julieth Sarmiento spoke about the four pillars of the National Honor Society, unveiled more than a century ago, scholarship, service, leadership and character and about the importance of upholding these pillars as new inductees. The newest members recited the National Honor Society Pledge led by Carlos Diaz Sanchez and were officially welcomed into the society by fellow member Sara Mejia who reminded them where their dedication to academic success can take them.

“Congratulations to these amazing scholars for their outstanding academic achievements,” said Interim Superintendent of Schools Mrs. Arlise Carson. “Their unwavering commitment to academic excellence makes them role models for our younger scholars who also aspire to achieve success. I am confident they will continue to do great things.”
