On Tuesday, September 18, Cristo Rey welcomed 28 new members in to the National Honor Society. These students all excel in and instill the values of scholarship, leadership, service, and character, all of which are pillars of the NHS. We now have 40 current students, of junior or senior standing, in this prestigious organization. We held a formal induction ceremony and prayer service with the student's families at Arrupe Hall where we were able to celebrate their accomplishments. Help us in congratulating them for their strong work ethic and excellence in academics!
