12 INDUCTION REHEARSAL: THE ACTUAL CEREMONY PROCESS  At 6:55 pm, the NHS members in the Lobby will close the doors & join the other Members in the Cafeteria.  The NHS Members will be lined up alphabetically in two rows.  They will proceed out of the cafeteria along the side of the auditorium, and enter from the lobby.

13 INDUCTION REHEARSAL: THE ACTUAL CEREMONY PROCESS  The rows will split to enter the left and right doors, and proceed down the aisles, past the new Inductees.  The NHS Members will take seats on the left and right of the stage.  The NHS president will call everyone to order.

14 INDUCTION REHEARSAL: THE ACTUAL CEREMONY PROCESS  The NHS president will open with an introduction.  Then, the NHS V-P goes to the podium, reads the scholarship paragraph, and then, from the lighted candle, lights the first small candle on the table.  As VP sits down, the Exec. Council Member walks to the podium, reads the leadership paragraph, and then lights the 2 nd small candle on the table.

18 INDUCTION REHEARSAL: THE ACTUAL CEREMONY PROCESS  When all the Inductees have been tapped, and proceeded to the stage:  The NHS President will go to the podium.  The Stage Participants will light their candles, and then the candle of the person next to them.  Until all the candles are lit.  (After lighting the inductees’ candles, speakers return to their seats and carefully blow out their candles. )  The President then reads the membership pledge, congratulates new members, and invites guests to the reception in the cafeteria.  Proceed to the Cafeteria for the Reception.
