NJHS Induction

In early May, students piled into the bus and headed to the Riverside Pavilion where they sat in ABC order and waited anxiously for the National Junior Honor Society Induction Ceremony to begin. Beforehand, everyone took individual pictures and rehearsed the speech. As the mentors went over key characteristics, the candles were lit to symbolize the most significant details. Then the inductees were brought up individually for their certificate, recognition, and a handshake from Mrs. Rathbun. The inductees recited the induction speech and all members were welcome to cookies and refreshments accompanied by proud relatives.

“I feel proud and honored to be inducted into NJHS because I’ve worked so hard to maintain my 4.0 GPA and to become a respectful, responsible, and safe person,” Andrea Jalaliddin, 8th said.

Inductees felt proud of their hard work and accomplishments.

“It’s a nice feeling to get good grades and be recognized for my hard work,” Muhammed Abdulranim, 8th said. “I think NJHS will be a great experience; though, I may not be very respectful at times, I am very responsible in doing well.”

Maintaining a 3.5 GPA and having good attendance and behavior had all been taken into account for nominees to NJHS.

“My favorite part of the ceremony was when I walked up to receive my certificate because when that happened I was finally a NJHS member,” Andrea Jalaliddin, 8th said.
