Excellence in scholarship, service, leadership and character earned 45 Brockport High School
students admittance into the National Honor Society this year.
Students were presented with certificates during an induction ceremony held at Brockport High School on Jan. 8.
The evening began with greetings and remarks by High School Principal Dr. Brian Weller, then
National Honor Society advisors Patricia Arnold and Rebecca Barrett spoke about past NHS
successes and future opportunities.
This year’s keynote address was delivered by Garth Fagan, iconic dance choreographer born in
Jamaica who moved to Rochester where he established his own dance company.
Fagan inspired students with his messages of hard work leading to success. He shared the importance of both formal and experiential education and explained the philosophy of being demanding of oneself before putting demands on others.
The evening concluded with a reception for students, teachers and family members to celebrate
their tremendous accomplishment.
