Hampton Bays Middle School inducted 26 eighth-grade students into the National Junior Honor Society’s hallowed ranks during a candle lighting ceremony last Thursday, March 30.
The National Junior Honor Society is one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for students. To be eligible for membership, the students were required to have a cumulative average of 92 or better and meet the standards of leadership, service, citizenship and character.
“We are very proud to recognize these outstanding members of our student body,” chapter advisor Laurie O’ Halloran says. “National Junior Honor Society members are chosen for and then expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community.”
