Continuing the Webb tradition that dates back to the founding of the school in 1870, students signed the Honor Pledge Books during chapel the first week of school. 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.
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."
The signing began Aug. 14 and will continue on Aug. 15, Aug. 16 and Aug. 19.
