What is National Junior Honor Society?
Established in 1929, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS (High School) and NJHS (Middle School). 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.
Students chosen to participate must:
· Must maintain a cumulative, overall middle school average of 85.0% in ALL courses with numerical grades and have no failing final grades in any courses.
· Must have been enrolled for at least a semester.
· Must abide by the Chapter’s By-Laws.
· Must demonstrate sound and effective leadership, admirable citizenship, and trustworthy character at Missouri City Middle School and in the community.
· Must pay the chapter dues of $ 20 prior to your induction (after acceptance into NJHS).
· Must participate in and have transportation to any NJHS Chapter community service projects
