welcome the new members into the chapter.
Esteemed guests included District Superintendent Dr. William Silver, Assistant Superintendent Mrs. Carol Napolitano, Liberty Middle School Principal Mr. Jack Strassman and Assistant Principal Mr. Richard Schacher.
Thirty-two members joined the 80+ current members in this prestigious group which recognizes outstanding scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship.
NJHS Adviser Marisa Bossert hosted the event as eighth graders Brianna Roth and Sydneigh Fleischman aced the masters of ceremony duties.
The evening began with the new inductees entering the auditorium to a reading of their academic accomplishments and personal future aspirations. The pledge was lead by eighth grader Ana Barragan. Several current members shared the history and purpose of the organization in the symbolic candle lighting ceremony which highlighted the character traits that distinguish members of honor society.
