What is NJHS? Why are so many people in NJHS? These are the common questions being asked by a lot of students. Well, everyone thinks they know about it, but do they? No, not really. People think that NJHS is just recognizing smart kids who have good grades. But, it’s also about service, citizenship, leadership, scholarship, and character. But what does that mean? To understand its significance, we have to go to the very beginning.

 

The National Junior Honor Society is an international student organization that consists of chapters in middle schools. The NJHS was founded in 1929 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and today has chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, other U.S. Territories, and Canada. It’s an honor to be selected for this prestigious society, and, for those of us at Cushman fortunate enough to be selected, we should know! We were inducted on Monday, April 29th. It was the most amazing feeling.

 

Now, the good news is, if you were in the audience and thought to yourself, “Wow, I wish it could be me up there”, you can be! It won’t be easy, but you have to have an average of 90% or higher, and a maximum of two threes in Courtesy, Industry, and Responsibility. That means turning in assignments when they’re due, paying full attention in class, and be kind to your fellow peers. Next year, give it a try! After all, smart is the new cool. And, always remember, it’s up to you and no one else.

 

Also, congratulations to the Cushman School’s 2019-2020 NJHS officers!

President: Alexander Jones

Vice President: Ruthie Tesler

Secretary: Luna Molla

Treasurer: Juhi Damely

Historian: Lucy Ingraham
