In an inspiring ceremony held the evening of April 25 in The Grosse Academy Chapel, 11 middle-school students from the Academy were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.
Abigail Keane, Elizabeth Kendrick, Bode Neumeister, Caroline Peabody, Alexandra Rollins, Ava Said, Lorna Savage, Jacob Tomlinson, Olivia Valente, Kennedy Waller and Kelsey Williams were honored Tuesday as new NJHS members.
Membership in the NJHS is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle-school student. Chapters in more than 5,000 middle schools across the U.S. endeavor to give practical meaning to the goals of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in official Honor Society activities. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
