Twenty-two students at Escambia County Middle School earned induction into the National Junior Honor Society, during a special ceremony held Wednesday morning in the ECMS gymnasium.

Students who are named to the NJHS not only have strong academic credentials, but also strive to uphold the values of scholarship, leadership, service and character.

Dr. Valarie Smith, school improvement supervisor for the Escambia County Schools, provided the special message at Wednesday’s ceremony.

“The fact that you are sitting on this stage is proof that you have worked diligently,” she said. “Be inspired to set the bar high. Leave a positive mark on history by being a part of history.”

The students who were inducted into the NJHS were seventh graders Brooke Doolittle, Kherstin Johnson, Tiffany McGhee, Olivia Simmons, Adonis Williams, Luerensley Williams III and Samantha Wilson; and eighth graders Dequan Andry, Lazarrian Boykin, Alexia Bryant, Destiny Freemon, Mikaylla Gibbs, Makayla Harris, ShaDiamond Harris Gabrielle Henderson, Diamond Kidd, Zaria Smith, Bailey Spann, Natasha Walker, Eboni Williams, Keyaira Wilson and Kaela Young.
