The Robert Toombs Christian Academy Chapter of the National Honors Society held its 2018 Induction Ceremony on Wednesday, April 11th in the RTCA gym. The RTCA chapter of the NHS was established in 2004 with ten new students added to the list of members this year. This year’s inductees were Sophomores Landon Botelho, Hunter Brotman, Kaitlyn Corner, Riley Corner, Tanner Jackson, JJ Jones, Mikayla Manning, Madison Moncus, Sam NeSmith and Fernando Zayas. Each of these students pledged to maintain a high scholastic standing, hold an untarnished character, courageously be a leader and volunteer their services to others. Alumnae Kailey Dees (2005) was the guest speaker and spoke to the students about scholarship, leadership, service and character. One of Kailey’s favorite quotes comes from the late Coach John Wooden which says, “be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because character is what you really are; while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” She emphasized that there is no fast track to building character other than choosing to study harder, step up to the plate, serve others, and do what is right. Lunch was served to the new inductees, their parents, and all other NHS members. Mrs. Ann Smith, High School English teacher, is the advisor for the National Honor Society.
