The annual Palmetto Christian Academy National Honor Society induction ceremony was held November 20 in the Worship Center. Students and parents of the new members gathered together to celebrate the students' accomplishments.

Clary Vance, NHS chapter adviser, and Anne Gregory Horton, president, planned and led the ceremony. Anne Gregory Horton was assisted by Rachel Jackson, vice-president, and Madison Broach, secretary, and Alyssa Godwin, treasurer, and Benjamin Salem, chaplin. "As president of the National Honor Society, I, along with the other officers and Mrs. Vance, worked hard to make sure the ceremony went smoothly. I could not be more proud of this year's inductees. They are a great class, and I know they will do great things this year in both the school and the community," says Anne Gregory Horton.

Membership in the society is determined by leadership, scholarship, character, service, and citizenship. To be considered for membership, sophomores and juniors must maintain at least a 4.2 GPA and demonstrate strong, admirable characteristics both inside and outside of PCA. National Honor Society chapter is involved in two local service projects in the community - the Ronald McDonald House and Water Missions International. Sophomore, Colin Johnson, describes, "It was an honor to be inducted into NHS and acknowledged for my academic achievements and accomplishments."

Congratulations to our new inductees: Julia Anderson, Rachel Andrews, Reese Baker, Ella Banks, Chase Benfield, Mary Grace Booker, Bella Byham, Paisley Dybowski, Fei Fleury, Colin Johnson, Morgan Kammer, Andrew Lamm, Maggie O'Hanley, Charlee Olson, David Pabst, Thomas Patrick, Trinity Rocha, Kaden Sorensen, Will Vandergrift, Lexi Walker, AnnaJaye Walters, Bess Weinheimer, and Hannah ZumBrunnen.

5th Graders Experience The Gift Of Giving

"In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" Acts 20:35

On the Friday before Thanksgiving break, the fifth graders visited Sweetgrass Village Assisted Living and experienced those very words from Paul in the book of Acts. The boys and girls knocked on doors, passed out gifts, visited with residents and ended with a program of singing and poetry recitation. The most beautiful part of the field trip was watching the students stretch their comfort level by asking the residents for their names so they can specifically pray for them throughout the year. The residents were honored and the students experienced the blessing of giving away gifts, time, talents and a bit of their hearts through prayer. We look forward to our follow up visit in March.
