Many parents may have been involved in the National Honor Society when they were in school, which continues as a standard at Stayton High School. Last year Stayton Middle School started recognizing students for their strong leadership, citizenship, character, scholarship, and service to the community through the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). Advisors include Lisa Glavey, Joe Usselman, and Matt Olson.
New students accepted into the NJHS were inducted during a ceremony in January. Students recognized as members included: Abigail Ross, Megan Benson, Cody Miller, Brior Cates, Emma Storey, Mason Riedman, Finn Baxter, Samantha Szmyd, Lisel Rutherford, Cailyn Riordan, Noah Oliver, Samantha Matland, Emily Smith, and Kathleen Claassen.
The Board will recognize these students at the upcoming February 19th board meeting during the Spotlight on the agenda. The meeting will be held at Stayton Middle School in the library starting at 7:00 pm. The public is invited to attend.
