Thursday, May 11th the Weiser Middle School held their 2023 Junior Honor Society Induction Ceremony. Twenty-three seventh graders were inducted into the society with the traditional candle lighting representing the pillars of the Honor Society: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Citizenship and Service.
This year’s ceremony guest speaker, Miss Idaho, Sarah Jensen, spoke to the current and incoming members stating, “Each of you should be very proud of the dedication that it took you to get here today. I’m really excited to honor you with this accomplishment, but I also want to caution you, because your hard work does not end here. As a matter of fact, it’s just the beginning.” Miss Idaho continued sharing her experience having to compete for Miss Idaho five times before she won the title, with each year she learned and gained more experience and knowledge. She encouraged those in attendance to keep working towards their goals stating, “I became the woman that I am today and that’s all because I Iost Miss Idaho four times. When the crown was placed on my head the victory was sweet, but it wasn’t just because I had won, it was because I never gave up.”
