Ninety-nine Oldfield Middle School seventh- and eighth-grade students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society, celebrating their academic and extracurricular achievements during the annual candle-lighting induction ceremony.
During the ceremony, members of the society’s board explained the high standards of leadership, service, citizenship, character and scholarship candidates must meet to be inducted into the society and lit a candle to represent each standard. To be eligible for membership consideration, students must possess these characteristics as well as have a cumulative average of at least 92 percent. The newly inducted members joined the current 124 eighth-grade members of the NJHS.
As president and vice president of the society, respectively, Christina Amari and Katherine Sheridan read the names of new inductees, each student wrote his/her name in the society’s official membership book and received a carnation. Along with friends and family present at ceremony, co-advisors of the NJHS Jennifer Garside and Kathryn Scott congratulated the students on this special achievement.
