Notre Dame Middle School's new NJHS members join with nearly one million students in the U.S. who participate in NJHS activities. More photos from the Sept. 12 ceremony can be found here


In a moving ceremony held after Mass on Sept. 12 in the Notre Dame cafetorium, 30 students from Notre Dame’s middle school were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Fr. Ron Nikodem, s.m., celebrated Mass for the students and their families.

Membership in the NJHS is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle-school student. Chapters in more than 5,000 middle schools across the U.S. strive to give practical meaning to the goals of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character.

More about the NJHS: 
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1929. 

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NJHS activities. NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, and around the world . Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

As such, NJHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement.

NJHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority. The average chapter contributes:

• 650 hours of school/community service
• $1,000 in charitable donations
• 500 pounds of food to local, state, and national causes
• 375 pints of blood
