The guest speaker for the event was new SMWC President and Clay County resident Dottie King.
"I want to be the first person tonight to congratulate you young people who are being honored," King told the packed house.
King described choices she had made throughout her life, which helped her get where she is today.
"The world you will inherit is a changing world, and it's changing quickly," she said. "You will inherit a lot of challenges. We're going to need all of your talent with all of this."
King suggested to all the students that they expand their knowledge, as they grow older.
"Learn as much as you can," she said. "You must use the talents you've been given. Make good choices. Your success will be measured over a lifetime."
NHS Principal Tim Rayle introduced a handful of NHS National Honor Society members, who presented students from each grade level with certificates for grade-point averages.
Freshmen with a GPA of 3.8 were honored, while sophomores with a 3.7 or above earned recognition. In addition, juniors with a GPA of 3.6 or above were recognized and seniors with a GPA of 3.5 or above were honored.
Following the presentation of awards, First Financial Bank Assistant Vice President Amanda Swift presented Rayle with an Academic All Stars Plaque for the school.
Then, Swift honored Northview senior Joseph Thomas with the 2011 Greenwell scholarship.
