Honor Society Inductions By: Thomas Hennessy
Honor Society Inductions
By: Thomas Hennessy
The inductions for National Jr. Honor Society are occurring June 6th at the high school this year. Every year, about 120 7th and 8th graders qualify, but only 50 actually get inducted. To learn more about NJHS, I talked to my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Nieves, who has been running NJHS for 9 years with Mrs. Harouche. She told me that once accepted into NJHS, it doesn’t stop there. Once accepted, there is a system of points that inductees must earn in order to maintain their stay in National Junior Honor Society. You must obtain a minimum of 25 points before the end of the school year by doing certain things including but not limited to, the American Diabetes Walk, raising money for a local charity, and joining a number of school clubs and activities. If not, you are forced to drop out of NJHS. Thanks for reading, and good luck to all our nominees!
