The ceremony began with a welcome from BHS Principal Jennifer LaFromboise-Wagner and NHS Advisor Darcy Skunkcap. An introduction was given by Mrs. Skunkcap on the importance of the pillars of character, service, leadership and scholarship. The inductees were given the pledge to recite; then a family member was invited to pin the inductee and present them with their award.
Acting Chairman of the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council Scott Kipp gave each inductee praise and congratulations; NHS President Lane Long Time Sleeping gave words of wisdom to all the current and new members of NHS, and Mrs. LaFromboise-Wagner gave a praise yell.
This virtual induction is historic, and these fine young scholars will remember that during the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020, they were still acknowledged publicly for their outstanding scholarship. They were able to cherish these memories with their loved ones at their homes along with their classmates via Google meets.
These fine young people exhibit character, service, leadership and scholarship upon entering Browning High School. All students are eligible to apply after successfully completing three consecutive semesters with a 3.00 grade point average. Our future is definitely looking bright with all the above mentioned Browning High School National Honor Society members!
Thank you to all the students and families who helped make this historic virtual event happen! In the fall we will honor this moment with a display. I am honored and privileged to work with the students and families as the adviser; you are all amazing, helpful and dedicated to making Browning High School successful.
