Schultz JH Students Inducted Into National Junior Honor Society
W.C. Schultz Junior High (SJH) recently inducted 69 members into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). The SJH Honor Society is designed to honor the outstanding achievements of students. To be eligible, students must have a cumulative average of 90 or above in core classes and demonstrate their commitment to the five pillars of NJHS: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
Students who meet these requirements are invited to apply for membership. Candidates complete and submit an application, teacher recommendations, and essay detailing why they should be considered. A council consisting of six faculty members review each application and students’ academic records to determine membership. Once inducted, members must maintain their GPA and complete chapter and individual service projects benefiting the school and community.
During the ceremony, NJHS officers reminded inductees of their commitments to the honor society and led the NJHS Honor Pledge. Each inductee was presented a certificate by sponsors Melynda Jones and Angela McCain. Waller ISD School Board Member Maria Herrera was the keynote speaker. Herrera praised the students on their accomplishments and provided inspiration for the future.
“Congratulations to each of you for reaching this great achievement of being inducted into this prestigious society,” Herrera said. “I’d like to encourage you to continue to feed your passion for learning, giving, and leading. Do not lose sight of your purpose.”
