Quill and Scroll honor society inducts new members
Quill and Scroll is an international honor society that Lecanto High School journalists have the opportunity to become a part of.
The society was founded April 10, 1926, by George H. Gallup and a group of high school advisers. The society was founded to encourage student achievement in journalism and recognize success in the journalistic field.
To be able to join this prestigious society, one must be a rising sophomore, junior or senior, show an excellent class attitude, have excelled in the class, have completed at least two semesters of a journalistic class and have an overall GPA in the top third of their high school class.
It is a tremendous opportunity and a privilege to be inducted into the Quill and Scroll society, as Quill and Scroll expects a lot from its members.
“It’s an honor to be a part of Q&A [Quill and Scroll]. You have to be doing very well in your classes to be involved. They expect a lot from you, and I give my all. This has been a good year for us,” said junior Tyler Philolious.
Quill and Scroll recently held an induction of new members. The induction ceremony included the ceremony, with short speeches from teachers Jennifer Poyner, Beverly Sylvester, and Amanda Mathieu. After the ceremony, the new inductees and the old members were treated to cake, provided by Winn Dixie.
During the induction, current seniors received cords to wear at graduation with their cap and gown. Cords show how many activities a particular student has been involved and has excelled in.
The members of Quill and Scroll are looking forward to next year and are hoping it will be as good as this year.
