Zion Central Middle School Students Inducted into the National Junior Honor Society
On Wednesday, October 30th, 22 eighth grade students at Zion Central Middle School were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). NJHS is an international student organization that elevates a school's commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. ZCMS NJHS is for eighth graders who had at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA for their 7th grade year and displayed positive behavior/character. Those students were invited to a brief orientation meeting and were given the chance to apply for membership. The main aspect of the NJHS application is a written essay, which shared how they promote the five pillars of NJHS in their life. NJHS not only emphasizes and celebrates academic achievement, but there is also an emphasis on service. Students in NJHS complete several group service projects throughout the year, and are required to perform individual service hours as well. If students regularly attend meetings, participate in group service projects, perform eight individual service hours, maintain at least a 3.5 GPA, and display respectful behavior all year, they will meet the requirements to graduate with NJHS honors and have the distinction of wearing special cords with their gown. We are #D6Proud of our NJHS students.
