Thirty-five talented students-artists from Harborfields High School were inducted into the National Art Honor Society in March, acknowledging their outstanding ability and interest in the arts.

To begin the ceremony, Principal Dr. Rory Manning and Dr. Francesco Ianni, assistant superintendent for administration and human resources, expressed words of welcome to parents and family members. They each commended the students for their hard work as well as acknowledged the unique opportunity the students have to connect with people through art.

“With your art work, passion and dedication, you can make people feel better and make someone’s day better,” said Dr. Ianni. “I am so proud of you and so honored to be here. Congratulations and keep up the good work.”

NAHS co-presidents Jack Ratti and Kelly Stone read aloud the name of each new inductee as they received their certificate and light the ceremonial candle. While welcoming new inductees, the society bid farewell to 28 graduating seniors who received the tassels they will wear on the day of graduation. In harmony, the group repeated the NAHS oath led by Stone.

The evening concluded with individual speeches from Stone and Ratti who shared what being in the society has meant to them.
