2018-2019 National Honor Society Inductees

Sarah O'Neill
On Friday, May 4th, 20 members of the junior and senior classes were inducted into the Tilton School chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS). During a ceremony held in Fred Andrew Smart Chapel, May 2018  inductees introduced the newly appointed members. Four students were also inducted into the Cum Laude Society.
Tilton School maintains an active chapter of the National Honor Society, overseen by Tilton NHS chapter advisor Julie Caldwell. The purpose of this organization, which was founded in 1921, is to recognize the accomplishments of secondary school students in the areas of academic achievement, leadership, service and character development. Juniors and seniors who have been in attendance at Tilton School for at least a full year and who have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 (B+) while at the school are eligible for selection to the society.

Founded in 1906, the Cum Laude Society is a highly selective academic honor society. Schools select only a small number of new members every year. In addition to an extensive academic selection criterion, candidates should also demonstrate excellence in all aspects of their daily lives and relationships and should reflect a sense of dignity in times of struggle as well as in times of success.

The evenings keynote speaker was Dr. Kristen Dupuis ‘13. Kristen was a four year day student from Northfield, NH. DUring her time at Tilton, Kristen was a member of the National Honor Society, a MacMorran Scholar, and played Varsity Field Hockey. Recently, she graduated from Northeastern University with a doctorate in Physical Therapy. During her speech, she discussed the values she learned while at Tilton School and how they have helped her later on in life.

“For me, it’s been almost 10 years since I first walked through those doors, and I’m only now starting to really realize the impact it had on me,” Dupuis said of her time on the Hill. “Being a student here is about a lot more than aceng classes and passing a test, it’s about how to be a member of a community. It’s about how to not only be a student, but to be a person. Learning how to communicate is what allowed me to be a member of this community - learning how to use my voice.”

Thank you to Kristen Dupuis ‘13 for joining us on this special evening!

Congratulations to the Fall 2018 and May 2019 Tilton National Honor Society Inductees!
