Hutto Middle School holds ceremonies to induct honor students

The Hutto Middle School Honor Society recently held two induction ceremonies for their honor students, which the two ceremonies were necessary because of the large number of inductees. Fifth and six grades had a total of 230 students that exemplify responsibility and have an academic average of 90 percent or above. The purpose of the Honor Society is to recognize, promote, honor and inspire academic excellence in students. Selection is based on five criteria: citizenship, service, leadership, scholarship and character. Steven Dupree, principal of Hutto Middle School, thanked the speaker, Mary Grace Griffin, president of the National Honor Society at Bainbridge High School, Col. Gary Breedlove, and the BHS ROTC Color Guard for assisting in making this program a success. Dupree also thanked the hundreds of parents, grandparents and well-wishers who attended the ceremonies for their encouragement and support.
