Earlier this year in October, National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) at Silverland Middle School in Fernley held its 8th annual Induction Ceremony. New members were draped by their parents and pinned by the incumbent members of NJHS.
The event began with the Lighting Ceremony by six second-year members who explained what each candle represents followed by a presentation of the Pinning Ceremony’s history by teacher and NJHS advisor, Danielle Jenkins.
The 31 new inductees were: Ryan Anderson, Lester Baker, Logan Bell, Braelyn Birkel, Cailynne Bixby, Benjamin Blyveis, Adrianna Brown, Fayth Burnett, Traven Cassinelli, Erik Christenson, Makinsey Cobon, Gwyneth Crowe, Mackenzie Depaoli, Ezra Diemark, Isabella Dumont, Caleb Fenn, Emma Silveria, Braeden Garrett, Heavyn Hill, Kenneth Hunter, Emma Kallas, Stacie Laird, Cora Maldonado, Reanna McVey, Emilia Morgan, Brycen Moss, George Rosenlund, Paisley Rosenlund, Alysha Searle, Jorgy Smith, and MacKenzie Viehland.
The ceremony also welcomed its new officers:
- President – Broderick Garret
- Vice President – Eli Bassett
- Secretary – Shyloh Hill
- Treasurer – Braeden Garret
- Historian – Fayth Burnett
- Parliamentary/Public Relations – Amaya Wilson.
Recently, NJHS sponsored Project Linus, a blanket-making project that donates blankets to children in hospitals as comfort for the tragic and stressful situations. This year NJHS was able to donate 85 blankets, which were distributed to police, hospitals and fire departments. The Silverland Middle School chapter of NJHS and its advisors, Danielle Jenkins, Dennis Fulton, Lorie Rieger and Jill Wilson, would like give a special thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Induction ceremony and supported the chapter.
