AKRON – Several students were inducted in the Ohio Distance and Electronic Learning Academy (OHDELA) National Junior Honor Society and the National Honor Society during a banquet May 18 at St. Joseph’s Family Center.
OHDELA is a tuition-free online school for students in grades K-12. OHDELA provides Internet-based, live learning sessions instructed by state-certified teachers for students.
According to Jaeda Dancy, activities director at OHDELA and chapter adviser for the National Junior Honor Society, students were inducted based on the scholarship, leadership, citizenship, character and service. They are required to have a 3.3 GPA and show some evidence of their leadership skills, community involvement, character and service to others.
“The purpose of the banquet was to recognize the academic and community efforts of OHDELA’s top students by inducting them into the National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society,” she said. “Every year the banquet is very rewarding. Each year we have more and more students being inducted, with this year being the most to date. It is very gratifying to see our students being recognized for their academic achievements with their families there to support them. It shows the families value education as well as community service. It is fulfilling to know through this ceremony we are officially starting the students off on the path to be great leaders and to be unselfish in their service.”
