The Junior National Honor Society Chapter Adviser is Mrs. Ann O’Brien, an English, Language, Arts Teacher for grades 9 & 10 at Granville Jr./Sr. High School.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) officially established NJHS in 1929, eight years after it founded National Honor Society for high school students. The first chapter was established in the lower grades of the Webster Groves High School in Missouri. The first charter to a junior high school was granted to Clarinda Junior High School in Iowa. Equipped with a constitution, an emblem and motto, and a group of dedicated principals as coordinators, the new NJHS organization quickly developed into one of the country’s leading educational groups.
