In presenting the inductees, SGTC mathematics instructor Chester Taylor listed the seven attributes all members of the NTHS share in common: responsibility, scholarship, skill, honesty, citizenship, leadership, and service.

During the ceremony, SGTC Financial Aid Specialist Jasmine Mercer lit a purple candle to represent each of the seven attributes, and a white candle to represent the guiding light of knowledge.

After the lighting of the candles, Taylor presented to each honoree a certificate commemorating their inductions.
