New Members Inducted into the Canterbury Honor Society

The Canterbury Honor Society was founded during the 1989-1990 academic year to advance scholarship and to foster the love of learning at Canterbury School.

At the school meeting of Thursday, February 16, head of school Rachel Stone and Honor Society advisor Bryan Kiefer presented each of the eleven new members with a scroll that recognizes his or her achievement.

The new members, all Sixth Formers, are: Aidan (Sung Min) Yoo, Steve (Seung Won) Park, Daniel Seitz, John Dowler, Mary Grace Cordtz, Kelly (Yiwei) Hu, Ryan Marks, Nikhil Trivedi, Benjamin Affenito, Matthew Howard, and Cameron Mecca.

"Membership in the Canterbury Honor Society is limited to students who have consistently achieved top grades in their courses and earned superior GPAs," said Bryan Kiefer, the Society's advisor. "Hard work, dedication, and excellence — these are the attributes that we recognize in our Honor Society members."

Fifth and Sixth Form honors students are eligible for membership in The Canterbury Honor Society. Fifth Formers with a Highest Honors cumulative GPA (4.0 and above) are eligible at the end of the first semester of the Fifth Form year. Sixth Formers with High Honors averages (3.7-3.9) who were not inducted in their Fifth Form year may be inducted in their Sixth Form year. Members must be enrolled in a rigorous academic program that includes honors and AP courses in a diverse course of study. Students should challenge the most demanding courses in at least three disciplines. They must have established a record of good citizenship in the school community.

This year's Society members will be honored at a dinner held in May.

Congratulations to each of these students for their superior performance.
