Pittsboro, NC - Horton Middle School recently inducted twenty-three members as it also established a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. Nine eighth graders and fourteen seventh graders applied for consideration and all were inducted. The applicants were evaluated on scholarship, citizenship, character, leadership and service. The students must have an overall B or cumulative 85 grade point average.

"Our applicants far exceeded this minimum requirement," commented teacher and chapter adviser Tracy Miller.

Students also detailed teams, clubs, community organizations and service commitments to qualify for the honor of induction. Miller noted how the faculty council comprised of Tom Campbell, Ellen Hadley, Casey Spillman, Melissa Zerbs and Kimberly Kendrick, were all impressed with students when evaluating applications and selecting members.

The group has already elected officers and begun planning several service activities for this year including thrift store work nights, school grounds cleanup and beautification, involvement with the council on aging, connection with the coalition for unchained dogs and pen pals and tours for rising fifth graders from Pittsboro Elementary.

"I am excited to work with such amazing students engaged in service and leadership," said Miller.

Horton feeds into Northwood High School and the National Junior Honor Society aligns with Northwood's National Honor Society.
