Membership

 

Membership in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle school student. The Greensburg Salem chapter has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five ideals are considered as the basis for selection. No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the total student—one who excels in all of these areas. The standards used for selection are:

 

Scholarship: 3.5 cumulative average

Leadership, service, character, and citizenship: as demonstrated by activities and teacher evaluations

 

Membership, however, is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection. Membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter. If our NJHS chapter is to be effective and meaningful, each member must become involved.

 

Each member of the Greensburg Salem Chapter is obligated to attend regularly scheduled meetings and participate in the chapter service project(s) while also continuing to participate in individual service project(s) which reflect his/her particular talents and interests. Any member who falls below the standards of scholarship, service, leadership, character or citizenship may be considered for discipline or dismissal.
