Middletown High School Inducts Honor Societies at Seaside Banquet

Middletown High School's National, Rhode Island and Foreign Language Honor Societies were inducted Wednesday night at a special dinner in the Atlantic Beach Club banquet room overlooking Easton's Beach.

On Wednesday, June 8, the upper level banquet hall set the scene for a beachside dinner and induction ceremony for the National, Rhode Island and Foreign Language Honor Societies for 2011. Other special academic awards were also announced, including special book awards.

Parents, faculty, siblings and school department staff joined the special occasion, with hundreds filling the banquet hall to honor the more than 80 inductees and award winners.

The evening program began with a prelude spoken by National Honor Society President and welcoming remarks from Principal Steven Ruscito.

As four symbolic candles were lit, fellow National Honor Society Executive Board Officers Mersina Simanski (At-Large), Clayton Hawes (Treasurer), Emily Hebel (At-Large) and Kaitlyn Eggeman (Vice-President) spoke about scholarship, leadership, character and service.

National Honor Society Secretary Katherine Rutledge next led the National Honor Society Pledge.

Membership cards, pins and certificates were presented by Principal Ruscito, Associate Principal Gail Ambromitis, and Dean of Students and Honor Society Advisor Colleen Larson.

For the Foreign Language Honor Societies, presenters included high school teachers Dana Ramey, Daniel Kerloch, and Luis Oliveira.
