Eight Junior High School students were newly inducted as members of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS).
The NJHS, established in 1929, is an organization that recognizes and encourages academic achievement while also developing characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship remain as relevant today as they were in 1929. As we prepare future for our global society, the opportunity to support these ideals becomes even more important.
