National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
The NJHS at Memorial Junior High School is an organization that promotes appropriate recognition for its students who reflect outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, leadership, character, service, and citizenship.
Students are eligible to apply for membership in NJHS in seventh and eighth grade provided they have a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least a 3.4. In addition to academic excellence, selection for membership is based on exhibited leadership, willing to use talents and skills for the improvement of society. Selection for membership is by a faculty committee and is based on their assessments of the candidates' scholarship, leadership, character, service, and citizenship. Additionally, all teachers at MJHS are given the opportunity to provide feedback on prospective members. Each prospective candidate's conduct and behavior are also assessed. New members are inducted during an annual ceremony, usually held in early May.
