NJHS Officers Talia Fabrizzio, Vania Oliveira, Kyle Gunsiorowski, Eva Sarantidis, and Tania Oliveira relayed the cardinal principles of honor society scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship.
Each inductee had an opportunity to thank the important people in their lives. Next the NJHS Pledge was administered by Assistant Principal Amanda Clarke. The night concluded with a speech by current NJHS President Talia Fabrizzio who explained what NJHS means to her.
In addition to achieving a cumulative, weighted average of 4.25, students also had to demonstrate strong examples of leadership, service, character, and citizenship. Upon return to school, new inductees will be awarded membership cards and medals, which they will wear at graduation.
NJHS Advisor Ms. Hamilton stated, “While it might not have been the traditional NJHS Induction Ceremony that everyone was expecting, this year was certainly memorable. This was our first ever virtual ceremony, and we were still able to honor these remarkable students in a unique way.”
