Seventy-three students from the Applied Math and Science Academy, Sgt. Dominick Pilla, Veterans Memorial, and Wallace Middle Schools were inducted as new members of the National Junior Honor Society this month.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all ceremonies were held virtually by the individual schools.
To be considered for National Junior Honor Society, students must have an 86 average or higher in all subjects, show outstanding participation in extracurricular activities, demonstrate leadership abilities, have an outstanding record of community service and an excellent attendance record.
Leadership is based on the student's participation in two or more community or school activities, or election to an office. To meet the service requirement, the student must have been active in three or more service projects in the school and community. Character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics and cooperation with both students and faculty. Citizenship is assessed by the student's participation in civic-related organizations and/or activities. These are the same standards that apply to the National Honor Society applicants at the high school level.
Congratulations to all of the new inductees! We look forward to seeing all of the great things you will accomplish.
