Bates Elementary School established a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) and held a ceremony to recognize their most outstanding students April 27, 2012. Jackson City Councilman Tony Yarber was guest speaker at the event. He encouraged the students to continue their path of academic excellence and never to give up on their dreams and aspirations.
NEHS engages its members in service activities and leadership development that help strengthen the programs for all students at the school and improve life in the community."We inducted 52 students at our first induction program, and we are excited about the opportunities this will provide our students," said Mitchell Shears, principal. "Our students will be taught leadership skills and will participate in many community service projects as part of NEHS requirements."
The National Elementary Honor Society joins the National Honor Society and the National Junior Honor Society as the nation's premier organizations recognizing outstanding students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, responsibility, leadership, service, citizenship, and character.
