PHS inducts 20 into Business Honor Society

Posted Aril 9, 2018

Plymouth High School recently inducted 20 new members into its chapter of the National Business Honor Society, to join 11 existing members.

The honor society is sponsored by the National Business Education Association, with chapters all over the United States. The PHS chapter, advised by PHS business teachers June Winkel and Todd Williams, was chartered in 2016 in order to give recognition to outstanding business students.

The new inductees are Josie Binder, Nick Falls, Korey Friederichs, Hana Goeser, Luci Hoitink, Jenna Iserloth, Josh Klister, Ethan Kurtz, Caitlin McEvoy, Noah McFarlin, Derek Novotny, Taylor Oreck, Holden Reilly, Jaxsen Schermacher, Luke Schneider, Joey Sebranek, Areliz Soto-Verduzco, Joe Steinhardt, Charlotte Suttner, and Ian Williams.

To be able to apply for membership, a student must be a high school junior or senior, have completed or be currently enrolled in his/her third semester of a business course, and have a grade-point average of 3.5 in business courses and 3.0 overall.

Selection for membership is based on outstanding scholarship, and a student’s ability to demonstrate good character, leadership experience, and service to others. Members are expected to continue to demonstrate these qualities throughout their membership in the society. 

The objectives of the National Business Honor Society are to:

  • Promote and recognize academic achievement in business education at Plymouth High School
  • Foster and recognize leadership skills and character development
  • Help members grow ethically and socially by promoting and encouraging an interest in business
  • Encourage member involvement in service learning initiatives

During the induction ceremony, held March 19 in the school library, new members received a certificate of membership, and seniors received a green cord to wear at graduation.

The induction ceremony was led by the officer team: President Darian Sager, Vice President Mason Guell, Secretary Rebecca Haumschild, and Treasurer Gabriel Olsen.

Additional existing members include Cory Haupt, Brandon Keller, Matthew Klug, Samantha Meyer, Peyton Picard, Ellie Potrykus, and Emilee Torres.
