CHESTERTOWN — New mem­bers of the Amer­i­can Chris­tian Honor So­ci­ety Cross Bear­ers Chap­ter were re­cently in­ducted dur­ing a tap­ping cer­e­mony hosted by the Chestertown Chris­tian Academy. Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease, re­quire­ments in­cluded an 85 per­cent grade point av­er­age in all aca­demic classes dur­ing their fresh­man year and the first half of their sopho­more year. The re­lease states, stu­dents are to be lead­ers among their peers with good char­ac­ter, hard work­ers and demon­strate school spirit. The staff eval­u­ates all aca­dem­i­cally el­i­gi­ble stu­dents and se­lec­tions are made for those stu­dents who rep­re­sent the val­ues and train­ing of the school. A can­dle-light cer­e­mony was held where cur­rent mem­ber’s ex­pressed the stan­dards of the honor so­ci­ety. Fam­i­lies were in­vited to at­tend a lun­cheon in their honor. Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, honor mem­bers of­fer “peer tu­tor­ing, lead­er­ship in serv­ing oth­ers and en­cour­age­ment to the un­der­class­men to al­ways do their best with God’s help.” High School teacher Lynn Poore sponsors the honor so­ci­ety and or­ga­nizes its events. Cur­rent honor so­ci­ety mem­bers are Chris Bolan­der, Emily Clark, Caleb Eich­ler, AndiBeth Lloyd, and Au­tumn Schulgin. New honor so­ci­ety mem­bers are Layla Brand, He­lena Cress, Reyner Meikle, Paul Myers and Heidi Pfadt.
