Fifteen members of The Cum Laude Society were honored during a dinner at the school Tuesday.

Seven seniors previously inducted as juniors are: Will Beyreis, Natalie de Beer, Eashwar Kantemneni, David Morales, Anushka Nair, Sylvia Nica and Abby Smith.

Eight students inducted as seniors are: Katie Briggs, Brian Butler, Catherine Collett, James Johnston, Riley Michalski, Anika Minocha, Lawson Renie and Joely Virzi.

Remarks were made by Class of 2020 Class Scholars Natalie de Beer, Eashwar Kantemneni, David Morales and Sylvia Nica. Cum Laude pins were awarded to all inductees.

At CCDS, students are inducted into the society based on their grade point averages, starting at the beginning of sophomore year. For junior inductees, the school takes into account their sophomore and junior GPAs. For seniors, sophomore, junior and first-semester senior GPAs are considered.

Ten percent of a given class is inducted at the end of their junior year at the awards day in June. An additional 10% of the class is inducted at an assembly in February. All inductees of a given class are honored at a dinner in March, where they receive their Cum Laude pins.
