The National Art Honor Society was started in 1978 by the National Art Education Association for students in grades 9-12. The intent of the society lies within helping students attain their highest potential in all forms of art and to raise awareness for art education in the school and community.
Monday’s ceremony was overseen by NAHS student officers Krista Szymczak (president), Anna Whitaker (vice-president), Tasha Rice (Treasurer), Jaycee Fullen (secretary), and Gabrielle Ortiz (historian). Each officer spoke to NAHS core values of leadership, character, acceptance, initiative, and service as a part of the induction ceremony.
The 9-12 art program is overseen by Mrs. Sonseara Grady, currently in her third year with the high school program at Circleville High School.
