Continuing the tradition that dates to the early years of The Webb School, students began several days of signing the Honor Pledge Books on Aug. 23 in chapel. The school opened for the 154th year on Aug. 16.
Webb and the Honor Council strive for students to embrace the school’s honor code so that it becomes a part of their lives, even after they graduate. Honor Council faculty sponsor, Jason Simpson, World Languages Department chair, and senior honor council members spoke of the importance of this tradition during the signing days.
The Honor Pledge is signed by all students at the beginning of each academic year at Webb. It states: "I pledge my word of honor as a Webb gentleman or lady that I will not lie, cheat, or steal."
An additional pledge for students signed on all tests, papers and other assignments states: "I pledge my word of honor as a Webb gentleman or lady that I have neither given nor received any help on this assignment."
Faculty and staff also join in the signing of the pledge books.
