There are 77 new Isaac E. Young Middle School students in the National Junior Honor Society!
The school held its annual induction ceremony on June 8. Principal Dr. Tawanda Robinson and Superintendent Jonathan Raymond offered opening remarks. Current eighth-grade honor society members Aidan Rodriguez, Alicia Acevedo, Niah Rowe, Makayla Herrera, and Olivia Bongiorni spoke about the Society's Five Pillars. Each student invited inductees Justice Diakite, Lorelei Schmitz, Alexa Flores Moreno, Cesar Hernandez Maldonado, and Ivan Oceguera up to the stage to light honor society candles. Current member Harmony Hopwood led the inductees and the audience in reciting the society oath. Assistant Principal Christopher Francaviglia offered closing remarks.
The National Junior Honor Society recognizes exceptional middle school students. Each inductee must have demonstrated excellence in scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character throughout their middle school years. In addition to demonstrating these exemplary qualities, each student had to maintain a grade-point average of 90 or above for at least six quarters and was required to submit an application. Congratulations to all!
