NJHS membership honors outstanding students. Eligible students are identified at the beginning of the school year. Once selected, member participation in chapter activities provides opportunities for students to reach their fullest potential at school and in life. All chapters are required to conduct at least one-chapter service project each year and to promote individual service projects for all members. The organizational, leadership, and service learning skills developed through these activities build stronger students.
More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
Sponsor of NJHS is Mrs. Karen Biercz (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Meeting dates are determined as needed by sponsor.
