The new members of the MPJHS National Junior Honor Society recite the membership pledge.
NJHS 2018 Officers (l-r): Vice President Madison Grundy, Secretary Jezzaniah Jeffrey, Treasurer Sarah Godfrey and President Connelly Cowan.
Over 100 Mount Pleasant Junior High School seventh and eighth-grade students are now members of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) following the official induction ceremony Tuesday night (January 9). Fifty-nine 7th graders and fifty 8th graders became members of the Magna Cum chapter of the NJHS. They join the thirty-four returning eighth grade members.
MPHS teacher and NJHS Sponsor Patrician Aulbaugh welcomed the students and families to the ceremony and introduced the returning members. She then described the NJHS Characteristic of Scholarship, explaining that members should pursue learning throughout their lives, that scholarship should not end when one leaves school.
Aulbaugh introduced the Chapter officers who explained the other four characteristics of an NJHS member.
President Connelly Cowan talked about Leadership and how vital it is for NJHS members to develop Leadership skills. Vice President Madison Grundy spoke about Service and how members should help at their schools and in their community.
Secretary Jezzaniah Jeffery discussed Character and how NJHS members should always act responsibly and set an excellent example for those around them. Finally, Treasurer Sarah Godfrey talked about Citizenship, explaining how NJHJS members should demonstrate that they are right citizens of their communities, states, and nation.
To be a member of the MPJHS Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, students had to have a 91 average, demonstrate leadership ability, good character, citizenship, and participate in community service. They also had to be recommended by a teacher on the MPJHS campus. Students must maintain these standards to remain a member of the National Junior Honor Society.
