Fourteen Prairie View High School students were inducted into the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society on Monday, March 6, in a ceremony in the district’s Performing Arts Center.
The new members, including several sophomores, joined 13 current members, including nine seniors who were recognized in the ceremony.
