Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School Announces NJHS Inductees

Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic (OLS) School recently inducted nine students into the prestigious National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). They joined 16 current eighth graders who became members in 2022. With family members in attendance, a special induction ceremony and a reception were held in honor of the students.

These bright young scholars were chosen based on the five ideals of the organization as proven by them through their activities and their teachers’ recommendations. The criteria included scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship.

NJHS is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a student in seventh and eighth grade. The society brings the endeavors of an outstanding student to the attention of parents, teachers, peers and the community. Chapters in more than 5,000 secondary schools across the nation strive to give practical meaning to its goals. 

Congratulations to this year’s 7th and 8th grade inductees: Stella Juarez, Linley Sparks, Ellie Burke, Sawyer Holmes, Franklin Gignilliat, Charlotte Watts, Ivy Gilmore, Makena Njani, and Stella Ferlisi.

Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School fosters the religious, academic, and social development of every child, recognizing that knowledge enlightened by faith and realized through service is at the heart of Catholic education. To learn more about Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School, visit
