The following was submitted by the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School:

The Mystic Valley Regional Charter School recently inducted 18 new members into the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society.

The inductees are: Saja Alani, David Chiccuarelli, Joe Dailey, Erika Furtado, Mike Hooley, Brian Lai, Connie Lam, Brittany Lin, Vanessa LoChirco, Emily Luu, Amy Nickerson, Jessica Phinney, Samantha Rizzo, Isha Sharma, Selma Sinanovic, Sarah Terrazano, Hildy Wen, and Miles Wentzell.

Dailey and Terrazano are from Wakefield; Lai, Sharma, and Wentzell from Melrose; Furtado from Peabody; Rizzo and LoChirco from Everett; and the rest of the students are from Malden.

The new officers for the 2013-2014 year were also announced at the ceremony. They are: President: Shirley He; Vice President Virginia Ng; Secretary Soraya Caballero and Treasurer Ryan Foley.

The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.
Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or a higher cumulative average are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.

Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit. Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.

"The 2012-2013 National Honor Society students have had another great year. They successfully put together not only our traditional yearly activities, but also took the initiative to take on new ideas and charities," said faculty advisor Julia Seymour. "With the leadership of our National Honor Society board members, Jordan Cram, Rob DeSantis, Marco Hanna, and Siobhan Glynn, our chapter added a mini-spirit week to the year and raised cleaning supplies for the local charity Housing Families. We would like to say a big thank you to our current seniors and a warm welcome to all our new members! The 18 individuals being inducted into the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School’s chapter of the National Honor Society exemplify the qualities of scholarship, service, leadership and character that are at the foundation of the National Honor Society. We are very proud of our chapter and are looking forward to another busy but productive and great year in 2013-2014."
