APRIL 22, 2014. Every year students in 6th-8th grades are chosen to join the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). This year’s students were inducted into the Chamberlain NJHS on March 26, 2014. We had a feast of a meal to celebrate this special ceremony. It is fun at the honors society inductions. I am an Honors Society student. The population of people and supporters are increasing. The NJHS induction ceremony was a success.
The number of students currently in the honors society has increased over the years. The outstanding students who joined the Honor Society were excellent and met the requirements. The students are active in the school and the community. They asked FPCS Chamberlain to donate to a cause, Pennies for Patients. It is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s school and youth program to fund therapies to save the lives of blood and cancer patients.
This year’s students being inducted include five sixth graders, one seventh grader, and three eighth graders. The Honors Society induction ceremony was very satisfying and exciting for the parents. One of the students had a 4.0 average, and one of the others had made it all the way to the finals of the National Spelling Bee competition. Ms. Venable is our facilitator and the person who came up with the idea to participate in the National Junior Honors Society. All of the students are currently setting an example for all of the younger students on the Chamberlain Campus who are flourishing and striving for success.
