May 17, 2018 marked a historical event at Assumption Catholic School in Perth Amboy, NJ. Our first inductees to the National Junior Honor Society took their oaths in front of their parents, teachers and friends. Established in 1929, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding middle school students. The NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. Our ceremony was held at church where Father Ivan blessed their pins and Mrs. Shumny presented them with their certificates. We thank Mrs. Pickering for being the chapter mentor and the committee who worked so diligently during the selection process. Please join us in congratulating our scholars and Assumption Catholic School’s first chapter to the NJHS. We are so proud of each of them.
