The National Honors Society

Leslie was inducted into the National Honors Society this week at Centerville High School. We are very proud of her. Only a certain number of students are chosen to be in the NHS and there is a certain criteria which need to be met. Each student must have a 3.5 GPA or better, they must demonstrate leadership qualities in their school and in the community.

Leslie filled out a huge packet and wrote an essay to be considered for acceptance into the NHS. Her teachers were asked their opinions of her as a student and as a person too.

The ceremony was beautiful. The Centerville High School Orchestra played for us before, during and after the ceremony and if you were not looking at them you would have never known they were a high school orchestra. They played beautifully.

Leslie was beautiful walking across the stage to receive her certificate. (I am a little biased)

Sitting there watching the students walk across the stage (which some we haven't seen since their dare graduation in 5th grade) gave us a little taste of what graduation will be like. They have grown up so quickly and are beautiful young adults.

Family from Minnesota came in from out of town which gave Leslie even more family support for her big night. (Greg was the one taking the picture...that is why he is not in it)

Not sure why my hair is sticking up in this one...I look like I just climbed out of bed for the ceremony.

Here is Leslie and Anthony... Anthony played the bassoon in the Orchestra during the ceremony. Beautiful music.

It was an honor for Leslie to be accepted into the National Honor Society, it was an honor to sit and watch the induction, but I believe the biggest honor for me is to have the privilege of saying I am Leslie Jergens' mother. She is beautiful inside and out and sometimes it is nice when other people besides her parents notice it too. :)

Congratulations Les, we love you and are so very proud of you!
