Common Core Standards - What, Why?

Do you know about the Common Core Standards and why they were developed. These standards were not developed by the President, the US Department of Education, or Congress. Instead they were developed by the National Governor's Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers to provide a "common" set of standards for student reading and math expectations across the United States, with the support of major business leaders from firms like Boeing, ADM, Carolina Biological Supply, Intel, and State Farm Insurance. For more information about common core standards, watch this 3-minute video.

After a delicious buffet meal and the Pledge of Allegiance let by Bayley Wilkey, Mr. Greenlee welcomed the guests and explained the purpose of the induction ceremony, which is to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. Elizabeth Whaley, president of NHS, then began the ceremony by lighting the NHS candle. The candles of scholarship, leadership, service, and character were lighted by Baylee Tanner, Will Moreland, Parker Ray, and Hannah Wilson. Luke Wilson, then explained the Ceremony of the Sword, followed by the induction of new members Chance Mullendore, Alex Nicholson, Paige Turek, and Ciara Wiley. 

Following the induction ceremony, everyone enjoyed a slice of cake while Mr. Greenlee told about the service activities of the NHS members this year. He also told about the NHS trip to New York City this spring. Mr. Greenlee then announced the NHS officers for 2013-14. They are Erikah Parcher, president; Baylee Tanner, vice-president; Will Moreland - secretary; and Alex Nicholson, treasurer. Congratulations to the NHS inductees and the new officer team.
