MCGUFFEY — On Wednesday, Oct. 21, the Upper Scioto Valley Chapter of the National Honor Society inducted nine new members.  The new inductees were Croft Bauer, Kayla Broseke, Winona Clark, Dakota Cornell, Keaton Cox, Peyton Dyer, Aaron Goubeaux, Tayler Lawrence, and Alexandra Shirk.  Induction is based on four criteria: Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character, and all students inducted must demonstrate significant achievement in all four areas.

The keynote speaker was Robert Underwood, an Upper Scioto Valley alum, who explained that the four pillars of the National Honor Society are to be applied in all situations as you go forth in life. Specifically, he narrated a near-death experience in his personal life and how the characteristics of scholarship, service, leadership and character were exhibited by all people of all walks of life because they took the call to action, just as the members of the National Honor Society are charged to do.  

The two-year National Honor Society members were also recognized.  These members are Corey Wolford, Torey Thacker, Tyler Skidmore, Shelby Purtee, Madison Shrider, Maddison Lowery, Makayla Gayheart, and Crystal Brown.
