Twenty-two Edmund W. Miles Middle School students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Their academic and extracurricular achievements were celebrated during an annual candle lighting ceremony.
To be eligible for membership consideration, students must have a cumulative average of at least 90 percent. During the ceremony, members of the NJHS executive board explained the high standards of leadership, service, citizenship, character and scholarship that candidates must meet to be inducted into the society.
With friends, family and members of the board of education in attendance, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mary Kelly, Middle School Principal Edward Plaia, Assistant Principal Kristy Pagliari, Dean of Students Earl Mitchell and NJHS adviser Carlee Wallenstein were on hand to congratulate the students on this special achievement.
