On Thursday, November 17th, twenty new students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society at Bryant Middle School. Membership is based on the five pillars of NJHS:
Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects the U.S. form of government; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
Members of the NJHS at Bryant are: Stella Doverspike, Olivia Sherman, Nora Karoub, Dena Hammoud, Alejandro Quesada, Lucas Blessing, Mohammed Ali Saleh, Fadel Chami, Taylor Berry, Andrew Brown, Charlie Frank, Kaylyn LeVasseur, Kyle Pfeiffer, Allison Quick, Suzanne Sareini, Adriana Viscomi, Matilda Wojtowicz, Rebecca Dear, Amina Ferris, Maryam Hamka, Raya Jaber, Kathleen Majeska, Avery McKelvey, Kathryn Pegouske, Yasmine Rababeh, Natalia Salame, Alexandra Slanec and Jack Wehab.
