SPRING VALLEY — The Hall High School National Honor Society held its induction ceremony April 19 in the Robert Manahan Auditorium.
The National Honor Society is a very prestigious club. National Honor Society members must be outstanding in service, leadership, character, as well as scholarship. A candidate must have a cumulative grade point average of 4.0 or higher.

Current NHS members are president Makenzie Walk, vice president Kaitlyn Huston, secretary Alyse Ruda, treasurer Connor Whitten, Matthew Hoscheid, Hayden Neilsen, Kaylee Olivares, Ashley Choate and Jenna Lusietto.
