  • Congratulations to our Hurricanes that were inducted into South Seminole Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society and to all the teachers that judged the finalists. A special thanks to Ms. Stalker and Ms. Strickland for facilitating this wonderful event! NJHS is more than just an honor roll, but serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. Induction into the National Junior Honor Society is a prestigious distinction awarded only to the most proficient students. Few students are nominated for induction, and even fewer are accepted.
