The Saipan International School inducted 36 students into their National Honor Society and the National Junior Honor Society at the Charley’s Cabaret of the Pacific Island Club Saipan in San Antonio last Jan. 29.
NHS and NJHS are the nation’s premier organizations that recognizes high school and middle school students who have at least 3.7 GPA and went through a rigorous selection process. The candidates are evaluated on the basis of character, leadership and service to the school and the community, and a five-member faculty council decides the admission of the candidates.
For school year 2019-2020, Saipan International School welcomed new NHS members
Susan Chen, Hyunmin Cho, Julianne Hall, Cevina Hwang, Hyeonbin Jeong, Semi Ji, Joobin
Kim, Seunghyun Kim, Geon Ho Lee, Sean Lee, Arabella Loste, Kuu Nishimura, Sofia
Osnach, Hyeonjae Park, and Jimin Woo, Tiana Cabrera, Linxi Cai, Serin Chung, Martha Culp, Hazel Guerrero, Huiwon Jeong, Hannah Kang, Savita Sikkel, Yelyn Kim, Dong Gyu Lee, Dong Hyun Lee, Yunwoo Nam, Justin Ngo, Grace Quichocho, Jesus Sablan, Hyeonbo Shim, Yejin Son, Ian Song, Jin Hee Woo, Kexuan Yu, and Jinie Thompson. With these additions, SIS now has 41 NHS members and 27 NJHS members.
Parents, guests, and teachers assembled the NJHS and NHS induction ceremony to
celebrate and welcome the new members. The lighting of the white candle marked the beginning of the ceremony, led by formally-dressed inductees, 15 NJHS and 21 NHS, who entered the theater, received the candles, recited the pledges, and joined the honor societies.
To maintain their membership, these students must maintain their grades and
participate in a service project. For the past years, NJHS and NHS members of SIS have
adopted a yearlong school-wide mentoring program to assist elementary and middle school
students and students who have special needs.
