Franklin Junior High School inducted 38 students into its chapter of the National Junior Honor Society on Thursday, May 12. The chapter was established in 2014; this was the second class inducted. 

This year's inductees were Jared Kremer, Noah Stephens, Evan York, Addie Imundo, Jessie Ferguson, Tanner Biltz, Lexi Lewis, Tristen Brown, Maddie Woods, Adeline Taylor, Brooke Stover, Joseph Current, Skylar Cox, Victoria Hamilton, JJ Davis, Nick Back, Madison Earles, Hannah Cundiff, Hannah Hall, Anish Patel, Jackie Greene, Gavin Lloyd, Garvin Adams, Alex Griffith, Joseph Clayborn, Lydia Elam, Kyla Williams, Fiona Baker, Bryan Thacker, Devyn Powell, Noah Went, Kristin Earles, Madison Meadows, Ashley Hall, Harliegh Hanks, Katy Trevino, Liza O’Hara, and Mariah Brannam.

Describing the students about to be inducted, NJHS chapter advisor Matt Franklin talked about their attitudes and characteristics, noting that, "They don't know it, but these students are leaders of the building." Franklin said that one of the induction requirements was 10 hours of community service but that many had far more, amassing 30, 40, or even 50 hours. Another requirement was writing an essay on "Giving Back to the Community." 

The 38 students inducted joined those who were inducted last year including Aiden Kinser, Alessandra Clavel-Hernandez, Alison Perez, Allisyn Brinkman, Braden Woods, Caden Johnson, Chloe Miller, Drew Lawson, Elyce Aldridge, Evan Krasnonski, Jett Tinch, Joshua Weeks, Karsen Quillen, Kaylee Harris, Kelsea Madden, Kody Viers, Madison Powell, Marisa Turnmire, Olivia Faulkner, Samantha Earnhart, Shannia Mangroo, Tyler Dishun, Zach Johnson, Carsen Bowling, and Austin Begley.

The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) was established in 1929. According to its website, NJHS is "one of  the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding middle level students." Students must demonstrate excellence in not just academics, but in leadership, service, and character.
