BHS Induction Ceremony: April 2017

The Beehive Honor Society Induction Ceremony took place April 12 at the Rice Eccles Stadium Towers. The event was held in conjunction with the Alumni Association's Spring Awards Banquet which gave great exposure for Beehive to all the scholarship recipients of the Alumni Association. The 21 inductees were joined by faculty, family, friends, scholarship recipients and previous Beehive Honor Society inductees—including University of Utah President David Pershing. After a lovely dinner, guests heard from Michele Mattsson, a former Beehive inductee. 

Each inductee was presented with a certificate, and medallion from President Pershing and Dr. Sandi Pershing, and their notable accomplishments were acknowledged. We warmly welcome the Beehive Honor Society Class of 2017 and look forward to celebrating their future successes!
