48 Students Inducted into NYS Science Honor Society
Forty-eight students were inducted into the Science National Honor Society. Newburgh Free Academy proudly represents the Reginald Gilbert Shaw, Chapter #24.
The New York State Science Honor Society was created to recognize students who prove their excellence in science. These capable students have demonstrated their scientific ability in the classroom as well as in the school and the community. As members, the students further their scientific integrity by spreading and, in turn, furthering their knowledge. Our NFA chapter of the NYSSHS puts particular focus on bringing science and technology to the community. Annually, members participate in cleaning up local parks, peer tutoring, science fairs, citizen science, and promoting environmental awareness.
Members must complete 10 hours of science engagement which may include Citizen Science projects, science tutoring, STEM related clubs, science volunteering and internships, etc.
Co-Advisors are NFA teachers: Sue Arduino and Tara Redican. The student executive team, who ran the ceremony, names and titles:
