A little history here...I had done so poorly in my 9th grade history class that it took me until my senior year to pull my GPA high enough to qualify for NHS. Because of that, the induction ceremony for NHS was a big deal to me. It was confirmation for all my hard work. I'm not sure The Boy felt that level of importance about the ceremony but he thought NJHS might look good when he was applying for colleges in 4 or 5 years. (sniff...only 4 or 5 years???)
He also liked the idea of getting dressed up. He does look pretty spiffy, doesn't he?
