Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Central School District welcomed six new members to the National Junior Honor Society recently.
The traditional candle lighting service was followed by Lorraine Sampson (a current NJHS member) who sang “I Was Here” by Beyonce Knowles.
Other existing members proceeded to read essays written by the inductees.
“I feel honored and privileged to be selected as a NJHS member,” said Josh Ostrander in his essay.
A common theme shared by all the inductees was that NJHS is not just about good grades but also about helping others even when there is nothing to gain.
Adviser James Watros gave the closing remarks, welcoming new members Ashley Kinney, Lara Kinney, Anna Mullin, Josh Ostrander, Ethan Pernisi and Jasmyn Trumble into the society.
