What is NJHS? What do you do in it? How do you join? What projects are they working on? Have you ever wondered these questions?

“NJHS is an organization where you help out the school and the people in it with activities,” said Ali Fielder. It takes a lot of work to get into NJHS, to get into NJHS you have to have at least a 3.5 GPA and 95% attendance. As Sydney Sampson said, “I got good grades, good attendance, and I got a packet that I signed.” Hillary Elrod stated, “They give you like this thingy if your grades are good enough to decide if you get to go into NJHS or not.” Many people get into NJHS at the end of their seventh-grade year.

In NJHS you do many different things. “You help the school with activities such as planning events and creating posters,” Ali said. NJHS is working on helping everyone get involved with the community and those around them. Sydney Sampson stated, “You do community service and help out with school projects.” The NJHS members at our school have been working on some projects all year long.

There are also a few different “job” opportunities in NJHS such as the president, vice president, secretary, and historian. They all have different purposes. The president’s job is to figure out some new projects to do and be the person representing NJHS. The vice president’s job is to help out with everything and also to represent NJHS. “The secretary’s main job is to keep notes and to keep everything organized,” Kayla Cea said. Last but not least the historian’s job is to take pictures and help out with creating and maintaining the school website.

Some NJHS members also went to Chicago to learn about being a leader. Gracie Gunter said, “24 people went.” Sage Buckley stated, “When I went to Chicago I learned about what it means to lead yourself and others. I also learned what it means to worry about what you think instead of others.” “I learned that failure is an event, not a person and fear holds you back and it shouldn’t,” Gracie gunter said. Sage also stated, “I have started making changes like focusing on my opinion of myself instead of what others think of me, and it makes me more happy.”

There are many different projects going on in NJHS too. “There are many projects we are currently working on such as yuda bands, puppy pageant, textile drive, tutoring during clubs, positive quotes, and the movie night,” Gracie said. Yuda Bands are being sold at our school to help get the profit; the tutoring is during clubs and the eighth-grade NJHS members are helping out some seventh graders. Also, as you have heard on the announcements there have been some daily positive quotes to help motivate everyone. These are just some of the projects going on.

Many of the NJHS members in eighth grade this year are going to be in NHS next year. NHS stands for National Honor Society. Sydney stated, “We will probably have more meaningful projects to help the community.” “I feel like we will get to do more bigger projects and people will take NHS more seriously,” Hillary said. Kayla stated, “More opportunities to get involved, fundraise, and help others.” Many people have felt like NHS will be more involving and meaningful, what do you think?
