National Art Honor Society Induction Ceremony

NAHS sponsors, Mrs. Collins and Mrs. GegersonNAHS members

Last week, we proudly presented students for the 2017 induction into the National Art Honor Society at The First Academy. The purpose of the National Art Honor Society is to inspire and recognize those students who have a God-given ability in art and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community. Cynthia Collins and Marsha Gegerson sponsor TFA’s Chapter of NAHS.

Inductees were greeted at the NAHS luncheon and Award Ceremony with colorful leis, and received a beautiful red rose as their name was called during the ceremony. Seniors also receive the National Honor Society cord to wear as they process down the aisle to graduate!
