A press release from the Rio Grande City CISD reports Grulla High School had their annual National Honor Society Induction Ceremony on Thursday, March 9, at the Grulla High School Cafetorium. The Ceremony started with the Students walking in with their Principal, Mrs. Guadalupe Garza and administration. Mrs. Garza addressed the students and the parents, and made them aware that the award they are receiving is the most prestigious academic recognition available to high school students.
The National Honor Society was regarded from its inception as a concrete way to promote high school academic standards, a means of ensuring the continuation of democracy, and an instrument for the betterment of the individual and the school. The Society has flourished; today more than 15,000 chapters are chartered. The national office of the National Honor Society is part of the office of the National Association of Secondary School Principals, based in Chicago until 1943, when it relocated to Washington, DC. In 1973 the Association moved to its own building. The NASSP Division of Student Activities’ staff is responsible for the daily operation of the National Honor Society.
The membership of the Grulla High School Chapter of the National Honor Society has been earned by the effective demonstration of the four qualities held in high esteem by the Society. The four qualities are: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. On Behalf of the Grulla High School faculty, staff, and administration congratulations to the new inductees.
