Alan Burt was the featured speaker for the GMG National Honor Society Induction. Burt is a local agribusiness-man and was a candidate for the Iowa House of Representatives in the election of 2012.
The importance of service to the community and others and the promise that young people of today offer was the focus of Alan Burt's address. He gave a quiz with two quotes that turned out to be from previous speakers for the NHS Induction. Quotes were taken from speeches by retired Superintendent Mike Ashton and former GMG student and college professor at UNI, Jillisa Balcom Moorman.
A capacity crowd was present as Sara Hinson, President of the GMG Dorothy Heiberger Chapter of the National Honor Society, introduced current members and the 2013 Membership Class. Eleven students were inducted and signed the membership book. New members include: Lexi Dubberke, Autumn
