“The National Junior Honor Society is the leader among educational organizations and societies that promotes recognition for middle level students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. Membership in National Junior Honor Society is a privilege. The Honor Society member exhibits excellence in academics and leadership, displays honorable and admirable character, and demonstrates a commitment to service and good citizenship – all of which indicate that the member is willing to use personal talents and skills for the improvement of both self and society.”
David Cordts, Associate Director of Honor Societies, NASSP
Selection of Members/Induction Ceremony
Once all candidate forms have been received, the NJHS Faculty Council, which is made up of five HCES teachers, will review and approve or decline applicants. The Council's collective decision will decide membership based on the NJHS membership criteria.
Once accepted, new NJHS members will be sworn-in during a special National Junior Honor Society Induction Ceremony held in late April.
