NEW MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY were inducted last Friday at Kaʻū High School. They are front row: Jasmine K. del Rosario, Cherrise Althea D. Calumpit, Calaysa A. Koi, David Zachary Ramos, Kelson A. Gallano, Morgan S. Pieroint, Hidi T. Vidal and Tayler L Rasmussen. Back row: Danny Edder, Kehionalani Forcum, Amelia M. Urie-Bounos, Erica Tailin, Timmothy S.

The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 and involves some 18,000 schools worldwide. Its four pillars are Scholarship, Service Leadership, and Character.
"The Civil Rights Act didn’t outlaw discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, or national origin until 1964. And it was only in 1990 that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) changed terminology from “handicap” to “disability,” and that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law prohibiting discrimination against those with disabilities in all areas—which was especially important in education. But NHS, too, has grown up over the years, increasing access to more and more students and supporting schools in shining a light on the values of Everyday Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character."
