Nineteen HCA juniors and seniors were sworn in to the Hawthorne Christian Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) on November 28, 2017. NHS is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS since 1921: to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character.

Congratulations to these talented, hardworking new NHS members!
