National Chinese Honor Society

On Friday, December 13, 2019, the National Chinese Honor Society induction ceremony occurred in the Helena Nobles-Jones Auditorium. Hosted by Mr. Yunlun Wu, Chinese Teacher, and National Chinese Honor Society Leader ceremony the ceremony commenced and guests were entertained with a short skit called “Comparing Languages” and powerpoint that explored the history of NCHS.

As the newly inducted students graced Helena Nobles-Jones stage they participate in the lighting of induction candles and a special tradition in which students indulge in calligraphy and write their Chinese name with a brush and ink. Mr.Wu then began to play a traditional Chinese instrument known as the Erhu, playing beautiful Chinese songs as well as ending his performance with the Chinese rendition of Jiggle Bells.

As the induction ceremony came to ending students and guests were treated with catering by Panda Express, live music from Charles Herbert Flowers’s very own band, and small gifts.

Personally, I would like to thank Mr.Wu for inviting me to the ceremony and to experience a small but powerful experience with Chinese Culture. Going to the ceremony had made me more interested in Chinese and their club and with a leader like Mr.Wu, I will certainly join next year if I get the chance.
