The North Shore Chamber of Commerce celebrated the success of the region’s leading high school seniors May 12 at its annual North Shore Honor Scholars Dinner. The longstanding tradition spotlighted the academic achievements of the top 5 percent of graduating seniors from 35 public and private high schools across the region. In all, 343 seniors were recognized with certificates of achievement. Close to 700 guests — including family members, school officials and representatives of the business community — attended the Honor Scholars Dinner at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Danvers.
EBSCO Information Services, based in Ipswich, the leading for-fee Internet research services in the world, served as the event’s premier sponsor. Tim Collins, CEO and founder of EBSCO Information Services, delivered the keynote address. Collins outlined his “6 Principles for Success in Your Life,” a booklet which he provided to every Honor Scholar in attendance. Collins’ principles include: Balance thinking and doing; Stay positive; Be your word; Help others; Be driven; and Minimize regrets. Collins urged the Honor Scholars to view obstacles as opportunities and to adhere to the Golden Rule of treating people as they would like to be treated. He also advised them to save themselves from the pain and lifelong regret of wondering what would have happened if only they had tried harder and done their best. The event’s Platinum sponsors, each of which sponsored the students from a select number of high schools, were Beverly and Addison Gilbert hospitals, Eastern Bank, Institution for Savings, the Mr. and Mrs. L. Dexter Woodman Scholarship Fund, North Shore Bank, UniCare and Windover Construction. Several additional Chamber member businesses sponsored the event at varying levels.
School principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors and other school officials assisted the Chamber in recognizing their students as they received their certificates. Karen Andreas, president and CEO of the North Shore Chamber, served as emcee.
