Since 1929, the National Junior Honor Society has been recognizing the highest achieving students in middle school. Modeled after its well-known high school program, the National Honor Society, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a national organization one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle school student because of their academic achievements and commitment to school and community service.

Each March Odle Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society invites potential members.
