'Be Ignited,' Honor Society Students are Told

Catholic Memorial inducts 55 students into the National Honor Society, congratulating 'young adults who reflect and exceed our ideals' and urging them to use their gifts in service to others.

Keynote speaker and Catholic Memorial High School alum Hannah Dugan urged 55 juniors and seniors assembled at CMH Wednesday night to take their acceptance into the National Honor Society (NHS) as a charge to "be the light of truth and of faith" to others, and become leaders by serving others.

The school held its annual induction ceremony for the NHS, which requires academic achievement as well as strong leadership and service components of all of its members.

Of the 55 students accepted, the following students were from Waukesha:


  • Melissa Betters
  • Courtney Farley
  • Julie Fischer
  • Kelly Henschel
  • Kate Klement
  • Matthew Mirsberger
  • Kailey Peterson
  • Katrina Radi
  • Matt Stagl
  • Shannon Weas


  • Tyler Agnew
  • Breanna Aldred
  • Becky Calhoun
  • Emily Curtis
  • Andrea Edwards
  • Maureen Fleming
  • Sarah Gorczany
  • Rebecca Herrmann
  • Kelsey Landry
  • Michael Mirsberger
  • Morgan Mutza
  • Jared Norgal
  • Peyton Uhl
  • Molly Wetzel

CMH President Father Paul Hartmann said the students "reflect and exceed our ideals, not just academically, but in how they care for others. They are mentors, volunteers and student ambassadors who seek to help others in the gifts they have."

Dugan, who is an attorney who has been an executive director with Catholic Charities and practices nonprofit law, encouraged the students to lead 'from the bottom' by serving others in whatever they do in life. In addition, she told them to "listen to adults' suggestions on your path, because they often see gifts and talents in you that you don't see."
