Quill and Scroll Induction set for April 22

Olivia McMinn
Prospective Quill and Scroll members fill out applications to apply for the society. Members must be a part of one of the three journalism staffs, uphold a higher than B average, and show a significant contribution to the staff.

The esteemed Quill and Scroll honor society induction will take place on the evening of April 22. Members of the newswriting, yearbook and broadcasting staffs are eligible to apply and become a part of the society. This ceremony is for both returning members and first year members. In order to apply, the student must have at least a year’s experience in their respective field. 

“I’ve been in the Quill and Scroll honor society since my sophomore year and to continue staying in it has brought me opportunities in journalism that I haven’t had,” senior Jaidyn Palladini said. “I think that it’s a good opportunity to join and shows the success of students in newswriting, yearbook and broadcasting.”

Similar to the National Honors society induction ceremony, the students will go through a traditional process while their friends and family members watch. Each student lights a candle, pledges the Quill and Scroll, then receives a certificate ad pin. Graduating seniors also receive honor cords.

Olivia McMinn, Reporter
My name is Olivia McMinn, and I'm a senior here at AAHS. This is my second year writing for the Mountain Echo; however, this year I am also the editor in chief of the Horseshoe yearbook. I am excited for both opportunities this year because I enjoy writing, working on new ideas and helping others. Outside my academic life, I am also a member of the track and tennis teams. In my free time, when I'm not playing tennis, you can find me with my dog, a good book and a large cup of coffee.
