EHS National Honor Society attends State Conference

Experiencing a new age of Promise

In late May Jeremy Bui, President, was graciously invited as a Guest Speaker at the State National Honor Society Conference in Rocky Hill for being one of the five national winners of the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. This opportunity allowed our future NHS officers for next year to gain a head start in gaining inspiration and planning events for next year. Principal Thomas Duffy came along with Jeremy Bui, Rachel Zeni, Mike Tingley, and Jessica Cerrato to enjoy a day of workshops, networking, and contributing ideas for Community Projects. Enfield High School made its debut at the conference and shined magnificently.

I think Enfield can now take great pride knowing that the Enfield High School National Honor Society is doing more than even other schools throughout the state. Thanks to the emphasis on Community Projects and extending our reach beyond just our school, the EHS National Honor Society had its first successful year in a very long time. “We’re revitalizing the Honor Society and setting a precedent for Honor Societies in the future at Enfield High,” says President Jeremy Bui. “We can only get better from here.”

“I was excited (and relieved) to learn that our NHS here at Enfield High is actually on the same page and almost ahead of other high schools in different districts. It's nice to know that we're actually doing more than others from communities with more resources than we have. We've turned students to Life-Long Leaders, who show much promise to make the world a better place.”
