113 Students Inducted into National Honor Society

Detroit Catholic Central National Honor Society (NHS) inductions took place Thursday, October 21, 2022 in the Robert Santello ‘58 Gymnasium. Parents and students gathered as Guidance Counselor and NHS Moderator Mr. Alan Barker, Principal Fr. Patrick Fulton, and Vice Principal Mr. David Lewis welcomed inductees into the society.

 In total, 97 juniors and 120 seniors combine for the NHS 2022-2023’s 217 person membership.

NHS was founded by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in 1921. The purpose of this organization is to encourage and to develop in the students of American secondary schools the qualities of service, leadership, character, and scholarship. 

Membership in NHS is an honor bestowed upon a student. NHS members volunteer four tutoring sessions in the Shamrock Scholars Study Program per year and assist with various school events throughout the year.

To be eligible for consideration, candidates must be a junior or senior and have completed one full semester at Catholic Central High School previous to the semester of election and must have a 3.50 cumulative grade point average or higher at Catholic Central.

Three teachers of the student’s choice judge each eligible student on the three qualities of leadership, character, and service. In addition, all faculty members are given an opportunity to submit information regarding any of the candidates. A faculty council selects members by a majority vote.
