National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)

On Monday, May 6th, current 6th and 7th graders were given information on how to apply for our GMS National Junior Honor Society chapter. NJHS is a national service and leadership organization designed to support students’ desire for school leadership and service to the community. Members inducted at the end of this year will participate in several community service and fundraising events throughout the 2024-2025 school year. Participating in National Junior Honor Society looks great on college applications, is an opportunity to make friends and helps ignite a passion for community service.  

To apply, your student MUST pick up a paper application from Student Services, fill it out completely, and return it to Student Services by Wednesday, May 15th. Your student must also have obtained a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the last two quarters (which averages to having As and Bs on their report card). Glasgow Middle School staff and school leadership will evaluate each application. Applying does not guarantee admittance, and applications must contain a parent or guardian's signature to be considered. Students who are accepted into the organization will be notified by May 20th. The induction for accepted new members will hopefully take place in the GMS cafeteria on the evening of May 31st. If you have any questions about this organization or the requirements for eligibility, please reach out to Ms. Zafar at

Executive Board Leadership 2024-25

  • At our Tuesday, May 7, 6:30pm meeting (VIRTUAL LINK), we will announce the slate of nominees to fill the Executive Board (4 officer positions) for 2024-25.  We will vote on the slate at our meeting in June.  
  • We have experienced volunteers ready to continue serving as Treasurer and Secretary.  This means that our financial house, and our technology (management of our Google workspace, and electronic purchasing system/card terminals for concessions), will be in very good hands next year.  
  • We still need nominees for President and Vice President.  Our Bylaws allow for an Executive Board position to be fulfilled by up to two members (the two Board members splitting the position will share the one vote for that position). 


What do the President and Vice President positions entail?  

  • The intention of both positions is to oversee and support the administration and initiatives of the organization, NOT DO IT ALL. 
  • We want our leaders to be enthusiastic, not overwhelmed.  
  • Concessions is a major part of what we do to raise funds for the athletic program, but concessions will NOT take over your life.    Some officers have spent more time working at concessions in the past because they had the time and inclination to do so, but it's not a requirement.  The key is harnessing all the willing volunteers into a team that gets concessions done without anyone being overburdened.  We also have some wonderful, hard-working students who make great concessions volunteers (special thanks this year to Coach Monica White's athletic leadership class, and various athletic teams as well).    
  • The President and Vice-President can support other parents willing to take on specific or time-limited tasks.  For example, we have an experienced volunteer committed to overseeing concessions for next year's Winter Season. 

Please contact me to EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST in the President or Vice President position, or SUGGEST SOMEONE whom you think would be great.  This organization makes a huge, positive impact on our Justice community.  Let's keep it going strong!   

Thanks, and GO WOLVES!
