Do you have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5? If so, the Altona Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society would like to offer you the opportunity to become a member. The organization is well respected among administrators, faculty members, students, parents and residents of the school communities around the nation.
Academic achievement is only one of the five membership criteria. NJHS seeks students that also have demonstrated leadership, service, citizenship, and character in their school and community. The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the whole student–one who excels in all areas.
In addition to attending bimonthly meetings, members of NJHS are expected to help plan and participate in leadership and service activities throughout the year, including, but not limited to peer tutoring, fund raising, volunteering, service projects and leadership seminars. Being a member of the organization is both an honor and a responsibility.
