National Junior Honor Society

Membership in NJHS is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle school student. We will strive to give practical meaning to the Society's standards of scholarship, leadership, service and character. Students will be selected upon review of applications for these four ideals. We will award membership to students who exhibit not only a solid academic average and also excel in leadership, service and character. We will require attendance at regular meetings and participation in community service/outreach activities.

If you were a member last year, please come to the first meeting.  See Ms. McAfee if you have any questions.  New members who meet the eligibility requirements and complete the application process will be inducted this year.
