On Tuesday, June 4th, the Madison Central School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society welcomed five new members to its ranks with a formal induction ceremony held in the Madison Central School Auditorium.

The new members include ninth graders Andrew Cameron, Madelyn Hill and Myia Liberatore, and seventh graders Liam Nolan and Nicholas Lollman.

The National Junior Honor Society is an organization that celebrates a student’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Per the organization, chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. The society’s membership consists of about one million students nationwide from seventh through ninth grades.

Membership is highly selective, with the honor reserved for the highest achieving students in each class. To become a member, a student must maintain a grade point average of 90 or above, display good citizenship, and participate in community service activities. Students are chosen through a comprehensive application process that includes a review by a faculty committee. 

As with its parent organization, the National Honor Society, the NJHS Madison Chapter is advised by Mr. Joe Burdick.

As part of the ceremony, the National Honor Society members also took the opportunity to recognize science teacher Ms. Megan Barnes with the National Honor Society Teacher Recognition Award. This award is presented by the membership in appreciation of teaching excellence for her work as a classroom educator, a class advisor, and as a caring and trusted adult in the lives of our students. Her overall approach to the student experience at Madison has left a lasting impression.
