Fifty-One Students Inducted into National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a national honor society that recognizes excellence in leadership, academia, and service. Every year, a select few students are chosen, from grades eighth to 10th, to be inducted by their school’s chapter of the honor society. These selected students will epitomize what it is to be a service scholar, as they are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 85 or higher, make voluntary contributions to their school and community, act as responsible student leaders within their school, understand the value of good character and morality, and practice good citizenship in civic engagement and voluntary activities.
This year, 51 students were inducted into the Elmont Memorial High School chapter. These students pledged to live and exemplify the five pillars of our honor society: leadership, character, service, scholarship and citizenship. Our honor society believes that membership lays the groundwork for a lifetime of successes as the development and nurturing of an exemplary standard of excellence, that is required to be a part of the honor society, is what we most prideful instill.
