28 students inducted into honor society

First slide

St. Thomas More Cathedral School in Arlington inducted 28 seventh and eighth graders into the National Junior Honor Society at the cathedral Jan. 19.  A candlelit ceremony marked the inaugural event for the newly established chapter, which aims to create enthusiasm for the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship.

Students qualify for membership by meeting the five pillars,  achieving a minimum 85 grade average or second honors, and maintaining a clean disciplinary record.

The members will work on the school’s NJHS group service project and as well as independent service.

"Our students inducted into NJHS are academically high achieving but also of importance is that they are committed, like Christ, to serve others,” said Principal Catherine Davis. "The newly formed chapter at St. Thomas More means our school will be giving back to our local community with projects spearheaded by our seventh and eighth grade student leaders."
