The first annual National Honor Society (NHS) induction ceremony was held at the ASB Sukhumvit Campus auditorium, on Tuesday, October 8th, 2019.
The National Honor Society is the United States’ premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921, and ASB students in NHS will join a network of over one million students in 50 states, many U.S. territories, and international schools across the world.
“You are the first official members of The American School of Bangkok National Honor Society; the first of a long line of students to come, year after year, decade after decade. So, to be a part of the beginning is something rare, unique, and beautiful. However, the beginning is only that - the beginning. The call of the National Honor Society is to model and be these 4 pillars of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. To begin is one thing. To sustain is an entirely different form of beauty. We are “the school of leaders”. This means we grow and develop our leader within to outwardly model leadership with and for others. We honor you today for your leadership.” - Dr. Brody LaRock, Principal, ASB Sukhumvit Campus.
