The students were awarded a NAEHS Society certificate, a recommendation letter from NAEHS headquarters for employment and promotion purposes and a recommendation letter for financial assistance, should the students wish to continue their education. 

Family members and friends of each student helped with the pinning of an honor society lapel pin during the ceremony.  Finally, students were reminded that they are lifetime members of the NAEHS.  A celebratory reception for the students, their families, friends and teachers followed the event.
