Science National Honor Society Inducts First Members

The newly formed Science National Honor Society inducted their first members to the society on Wednesday, January 16. The ceremony began with the presentation of colors and Pledge of Allegiance by Menchville’s JROTC class, followed by a brief welcome from Mrs. Rhonda Taylor and Menchville’s principal, Bobby Surry. Dr. Rodney Culverhouse, who is a Secondary Science Supervisor, shared his perspective on science as a guest speaker before the inductees were called.
