DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - Sixteen Dobbs Ferry Middle School students were inducted into the Dobbs Ferry Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society at a special ceremony in early June.
The newest members will be entering eighth-grade in the fall and were recognized for their outstanding academic achievement during the past school year.
The inductees are Soo Yun Byeon, Rebecca Cadenhead, Joelle El Hamouche, Anastasia (Tess) Eliopoulos, Andrew Fessler, Crystal Gao, Alison Gormley, Mikayla Kibel, Nicole Malinov, Nisha Mathur, Devan McGillian, Tiko Mkheidze, Scott Newman, Emily Plotkin, Sean Prendi and Nuala Vizard.
According to chapter advisers Annette Gonzalez and Rose Graeff, the requirements for admission to the National Junior Honor Society are stringent so that it is a meaningful accomplishment for students.
“We were very impressed with the applications received from this group of candidates,” Gonzalez and Graeff said in a statement. “The students worked to maintain their scholastic achievement while pursuing many different extra-curricular activities. They should all be commended for their hard work.”
Seventh-grade students must achieve a 4.0 grade point average, with no grade less than a B in all their subject areas in each of the three quarters prior to induction. Character, leadership, citizenship and community/school service are also considered.
