Olympia Christian School (OCS) inducted Madison Hayes, 7th grade, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Hayes of Olympia. Madison is a member with Isaac Roy, 8th grade, last school year’s inductee. This organization was formed in 1929 to encourage junior high students to promote scholarship and character development and to pursue membership in the senior organization, National Honor Society (1921) for high school students. The 5 pillars for the NJHS are scholarship, leadership, character, service, and citizenship. The OCS chapter requires a 3.5 GPA for 2 consecutive quarters, good behavior and participation in community service projects to qualify. The induction ceremony included a candle lighting ceremony to highlight the five pillars of the organization and a pinning with the NJHS pin, presentation of a yellow rose (NJHS flower), certificate presentation and a reciting of the NJHS pledge. There is an advisory board from OCS who determines membership and oversees the program to ensure adherence to the high academic, character standards and community involvement. Students at OCS receive quarterly lunch outings and take leadership in OCS activities, school promotion, and community service projects.
