NJHS holds induction ceremony
Gause ISD National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony was held Friday in the school cafeteria. Seventh grade inductees were Marilyn Christensen and Justin Gosch. Sixth grade inductees were Jaylyn Barcak, Andre’ Bonorden, Cameron Cooper, Ginny Cunningham, Taylor Lange, Kendall Lee, Chase Silvey, Brandon “BJ” Smith, Carl Walker and Christina Zeig.
NJHS faculty council member Elizabeth Miller gave the welcome after which faculty council member Kelly Lee-Cooper introduced guest speaker Brittany Bullock, president of Milano High School NHS.
The induction ceremony included lighting of the candles by the NJHS officers and NJHS pledge by the inductees. Faculty council members held the pinning of the inductees after which GISD Supt. Perry Bell gave closing remarks.
Gause NJHS officers for the 2011-12 school year are Keely Lagrone, president; Carl Walker, vice president; Christina Zeig, secretary; Adrianna Morehead, treasurer; and Cameron Cooper and Marilyn Christensen historians. Following the ceremony, inductees and their families were invited for refreshments.
On May 9, the Gause ISD student council and NJHS took a fun day field trip to Grand Station in College Station.
Next week is the last week of school. On Thursday, May 26 there will be an early release at 12:30 p.m. That evening at 7 p.m. the Gause ISD eighth grade graduation will be held in the Gause School gym.
On Friday, May 27 Awards Day will begin that morning and school will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. and that is the last day of the 2010-11 school year. I’m sure students and teachers are ready for summer vacation.
