CULLMAN, Ala. – Ten St. Bernard Prep School middle school students were  inducted into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) after Mass on March 16, 2023, in the Abbey Church.  

Fr. Joel Martin, OSB, headmaster, welcomed students to one of the world’s oldest and highest achieving clubs. There is only one NJHS, and it provides an outstanding opportunity to network with academically accomplished peers. The club also inspires students to develop the habits needed for success in high school and beyond.

The NJHS’ Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes middle-level students for their commitment to the five pillars of NJHS: scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship. 

To be eligible, a student must be an active and current member in good standing of an NJHS chapter and meet all membership requirements and obligations of the Abbot Hilary Dreaper Chapter.

Following the induction, a brief reception for the inductees and their guests was held in the Brahma Room of the dining hall.
