National Honor Society induction ceremony

On the evening of Thursday, Dec. 1, juniors and seniors were inducted into the JC chapter of the National Honor Society.

The National Honor Society is a nation-wide program established in 1921. Membership is based on the four pillars of the NHS: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. If a student has a cumulative GPA of 4.1 at the end of either their sophomore or junior year, then they are eligible for induction.

Many students, like junior Josephine Cohen, felt honored to be inducted into the program and thought it validated their hard work. “I’m excited about it mostly because it’s going to look good to colleges. It’s nice to be recognized for all of our hard work,” Cohen said.
