Sayville MS Honor Students Celebrated at NJHS Induction

An Occasion to Celebrate Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Character, & Citizenship at the National Junior Honor Society

For the fifty-nine Seventh-graders and two Eighth-graders, the Sayville Middle School National Junior Honor Society annual induction was a well-earned reward.

These students, who have maintained a grade average of 95 or above for four quarters, exemplified the five attributes of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Character, and  Citizenship required to become a member of  the prestigious National Junior Honor Society.

Middle School Principal Thomas Murray and NJHS advisor Mrs. Lloyd-Matthews were proud to welcome the inductees and their families for the evening ceremony.

Assisting with the celebration, Eighth-grade society members participated by opening with the Pledge of Allegiance (Moira Mahoney), describing the five attributes: Scholarship (Jeremy Hirsch), Service (Michael Lofaro), Leadership (Jenna Deignan), Character (Philip Rinaldi, III), and Citizenship (Katheryn Donohue), announcing the inductees (Megan Collins, Devin Dolan, and Christina O’Leary), and lighting the symbolic candles (Gabriele Thornton). After all the new members received their certificates and handshakes from Mr. Murray on stage, they returned to their seats where current member Amelia Flaumenhaft led the inductees in the NJHS pledge.

Closing the ceremony with parting words, Mrs. Lloyd-Matthews reminded the new members that they are required to continue upholding the attributes of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character as they complete their years at the Middle School, while Mr. Murray commended the students for bringing such pride to the Sayville Middle School community.

NJHS is the leading organization that recognizes exceptional middle-level students who have successfully demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character throughout their Middle School years.
