Announcing the Newest Members of NJHS

Cardigan's 2021 NJHS Induction

Cardigan Mountain School recently inducted 19 students into our chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). One of the nation’s oldest, largest, and most prestigious student recognition programs, the NJHS has chapters in all 50 states and around the world, with more than one million students participating in NJHS activities. 

At Cardigan, students are inducted in the eighth and ninth grades. Those who have a cumulative grade point average of a B+ (3.3) or higher and whose effort average is a 4 or better, are selected for further review. The names of these boys are submitted to a faculty council, which evaluates their candidacy based on the four additional NJHS criteria.

As with any organization, it is ultimately up to its members to honor and uphold the goals and aspirations that they have established as valuable. At Cardigan, the boys have done just that—striving in scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. They are examples to each other and to the boys who are to come.

During their time at Cardigan the following boys have made the right choice and have worked hard to embrace the values of the NJHS and Cardigan Mountain School. Congratulations to Cardigan’s newest members of NJHS!
