Five Missouri Military Academy cadets have become full members of one prominent academic society. Juniors Jesus Herrera ’14, Dallas Lopez ’14, Nicholas Mabbs ’14, Jacob Priester ’14, and Jack Solls ’14 were officially recognized as part of the National Honor Society during Battalion Review Sunday.
Chapter adviser MAJ Mike Pemberton says members are selected by a Faculty Council for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
“National Honor Society members are chosen and then expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community,” said Pemberton added. “These students are the most worthy of this honor.”
The Missouri Military Academy chapter of the National Honor Society has been active since 2005. The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in more than 60 percent of the nation’s high schools and, since 1921, millions of students have been selected for membership. Millions of dollars in scholarships have also been awarded to senior members since 1945 by the society’s sponsoring organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
