As always, the commitment to academic excellence remains the cornerstone of our South Huntington School District. It is with this understanding that we congratulate this year's inductees into the National Honor Society. This special recognition speaks volumes about a student's intellect, work ethic, character, and deep-seated commitment to service.

“The challenge that I present to you is not one that you will necessarily face today, but rather at many points throughout your life,” said Principal John Murphy to his new inductees.  “As you move into the final stage of high school and life thereafter, you will face many points where you need to decide between doing something the right way or doing something the wrong way. The moment is sometimes subtle and can even be overlooked, but the choices that you make in those key moments will make all of the difference for the life that you ultimately lead. As you head off into the world, my hope is that each of you will always lean on the values, ethics, and character that you have developed as you make those difficult choices throughout your life.”
