2017 National Junior Honor Society Induction

Rocky Mountain Classical Academy 2017 NJHS Inductees

On April 7, 2017, RMCA inducted seventeen students into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). Open to seventh and eighth graders, these students joined fifteen current members, raising the school’s total to thirty-two Honor Society members. Only 13 percent of all main building seventh and eighth grade students have earned this achievement. As NJHS Program Advisor Mrs. Rhonda Chozinski (Rhetoric and Logic, Seventh Grade) commented, “Membership is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a student. The society strives to recognize the total student, one who excels in all of these qualities. Determination for membership is made based on report card grades, conduct, demonstration of the qualities expected by the National Junior Honor Society, and teacher recommendations.”

Headmaster Ms. Christianna Fogler gave the keynote address, recognizing that Honor Society members shoulder a “commitment to learning through diligence and effort.” These students have combined important character traits such as leadership, sacrifice, honesty, respect, scholarship, and courtesy to help them succeed in furthering their education. Before the ceremony, inductees, current members, and family members attended a celebratory supper that Mrs. Chozinski and Assistant Program Advisor Mrs. Michele Voth (History and English, Seventh Grade) organized. Nearly 150 people attended the event.
