Dodd Inducts 93 Students into NJHS

J.W. Dodd Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society advisor Ms. Felice Niland led 93 students into the gym to be inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.

To qualify for induction into this prestigious national organization, the eighth-grade students were required to maintain an 85% average, complete an application including an essay, complete ten hours of community service and obtain two letters of recommendation. Many of the students completed above and beyond the ten hours required for the community service portion. 

In addition, the students hosted a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and raised $1,500 to fund research for childhood cancers. Students received a NJHS pin and recited the NJHS pledge during their induction. 

With close to 400 people in the gym, including teachers, parents and friends, a round of applause was given to the newest members of the society. The PTA donated two beautiful cakes, while students brought in an abundance of refreshments, which were served by the Ladies of Dodd.
