National Honor Society Honorees inducted

Memorial Middle School held an induction ceremony for the 15 members of its National Junior Honor Society chapter.

The school's chapter was established last year. Ten students were initially inducted last spring. They were joined this spring by new inductees Ava Beirne, Anthony Billson, Mila Dragisic, Leah Marain, and Amayiah Pena. As an official induction was not held last spring due to COVID, all 15 students were officially recognized at the event and honored by family and friends in attendance. 

The National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding students. More than an honor roll, the NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship.

Seventh and eighth graders who achieve first or second honors in the first two marking periods of the school year are eligible to apply. The criteria for acceptance includes: participation in school activities, community service roles, special accolades, leadership positions, teacher recommendations and a written essay. Students are accepted accoding to a state mandated rubric.

The chapter meets regularly and completes various community service activities in order to help to make our community a better place. Individuals who have been accepted into NJHS are expected to complete community service hours outside of the work accomplished in school. Please join us in congratulating these students.
