The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. NJHS is the middle school path to possible membership in National Honor Society (NHS) in high school.
To be eligible for NJHS, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher through the first three quarters of 7th grade. These students must receive high recommendation scores from at least 3 of their 7th grade teachers.
Mead Middle School’s NJHS members annually do a coat drive to support Colorado Friendship. Individual members of the club must complete 10 hours of individual service outside of school and write an essay about what they learned during that time.Sponsor: M.K. Mehsling
