The Randolph High School Chapter of the National English Honor Society inducted 72 new members in a special ceremony Nov. 29.

During the program, RHS Humanities Supervisor Dr. Amelia Wright told parents that when employers hire college graduates for jobs, they look for key components that students learn in  today’s English classroom: written communication, analytical skills and verbal communication skills. “I share this information because I want you to know that this honor is about so much more than loving literature and doing well in your English classes.”
Guest speaker and teacher Michelle Lonie told students that her favorite characters in literature are the ones she admires. “And so my wish to all new inductees is that you always have a sense of wonder like Clarisse McClellan, that you have the integrity of Atticus Finch and that, like Miss Pross, you always fight for love instead of hate.”
