Approximately 100 people were in attendance on Tuesday, Nov. 13, for the Cannon Falls High School National Honor Society Induction Ceremony. At the ceremony, 17 new members were inducted and nine seniors were recognized as current members inducted last year.
Mr. Tyler Quinlan, Algebra II and Calculus teacher, gave the welcome and introduced all the members. Mrs. Holly Winget, English teacher, gave the main address. Winget, a CFHS NHS alum, urged the students to "write their own story" and to be the best sidekick or bit player possible in the stories of those around them.
Membership into the National Honor Society is based upon scholarship, service, leadership and character.
