A new group of 16 Five Points School students has been inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Eligibility requires that each student maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA).
In addition to the academic requirement, students pledge their active involvement in community service, leadership, and good character by demonstrating high standards of honesty, reliability, courtesy, concern and respect for others, as well as maintaining a clean disciplinary record.
Fourth-grade inductees included Jucasion Brooks, Skye Favors, Amilleon Huguley, Amillion Staples and Michael Turner.
Inductees from fifth grade were Tammiah Collier, Aayden Duffee, Kentrel Paige, Jermayne Rozier and Madison Turner.
Jasmine Barber and A’Shayla James were the new sixth-grade inductees; Talia Lee, Jaylah Sturdivant and Brianna Tucker were inducted from the seventh grade; and Zachary Taylor was the new eighth-grade inductee.
“These students have worked very hard to become worthy of this honor,” said Five Points Principal Rhonda Givins. “We are proud of each of them for their achievement.”
The inductions were announced during a special ceremony and reception at the school.
