PMSA National Honor Society Induction Ceremony
Twenty-nine seniors were inducted into the Proviso Math and Science Academy National Honor Society (NHS) at its fall ceremony on November 30, 2017. Sophomore and junior level students were also recognized for being on the path for induction in their senior year.

The ceremony was conducted in the PMSA auditorium. Attendees included students, families, friends, and Dr.Bessie Karvelas, Principal of PMSA, Mr. William Breisch, Assistant Principal of PMSA, Ms. Amy Paulus, school counselor at PMSA, Ms. Kimberly Demitro, PMSA science teacher and NHS chapter advisor, and Mr. Ned Wagner, Board of Education member.
During this special ceremony inductees recited the NHS pledge and received their membership certificate after Ms. Paulus reminded them of the main qualities for participation, including scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Following the ceremony, friends and families were invited for a reception to celebrate the new inductees accomplishment.  
To be inducted into the National Honor Society, a student, who is either a current sophomore, junior, or senior, needs to have at least four semesters in which they earn a grade point average of at least 3.7 of a possible 4.0. Eligible students also must demonstrate excellence in the four qualities of members. Based on this criterion, the Faculty Council reviews and selects candidates for National Honor Society membership.
"This ceremony was a great opportunity to showcase and celebrate the hard work of our students in the classroom and with the community. On top of being leaders in the classroom, NHS students volunteer throughout the year with various community organizations," says Ms. Demitro.
