Some 39 Susquehanna Community High School students were recognized for their high academic achievement during the National Honor Society ceremony held in the Helen Gully Auditorium on March 6.
Mark Carmody, a graduate of SCHS and the father of inductee Emily Carmody, was the guest speaker.
When introduced by his daughter, Carmody was described as a man who has been in school as long as she could remember. Starting his academic career in 1981 with an associate degree he is presently earning a doctorate in two concentrations pertaining to leadership.
Following his retirement from the Army in 2007 he has settled in Thompson and is serving as President of Thompson Borough Council.
Carmody spoke of all the teachers and the part they played in bringing the students to this point in their academic standing.
“Recognition for your own hard work and academic ability is the best award you will ever receive, better than any sports award,”
