Have you ever heard about NJHS and wondered what it means? Well it means National Junior Honor Society. In NJHS you have the opportunity to do a lot of fun and exciting service projects, such as going to Art City Elementary and helping out with the carnival, going to the citizen center and singing songs to bring in the holiday joy! Mrs. Ottley is the teacher in charge of NJHS, she said “NJHS is a great way to do service and get good leadership skills.”

Being in NJHS is so much fun! Katie Durfey said “I like NJHS because it gives you good service opportunities,you  get to be apart of the community, and you get to be around people who also want to serve.” In NJHS there is a presidency, Cooper Acor is the president, Zach Jackson is first vice president, and Ashlee Edwards is the service coordinator. Cooper said “ I liked being the president because he gets to help people in NJHS, serve the community, and you get to help people.” NJHS is really fun and good for college resumes, it shows that you like doing service! 

NJHS sounds so much fun and you get to do all of these fun things. NJHS is a great way to serve others and to have fun!

Everybody chooses their own path, what we do now defines who we are and what we will become. Out of the three girls that I interviewed two of them started playing very young. All of them love it. Ashlee Bayles described it as defining. Elizabella Francom described it as exciting, Ady Ashcroft described it as competitive. Even though they all play different positions, even though they all have different views. All of them hope to do it again. The girls basketball team works hard to win, they practice every day. They have won every game, undefeated. The team is close and they work together to get what they want. They treat each other like family and they use that bond to do what needs to be done. The girls basketball team is an example to all of us that if we put our minds too something we can do anything.

“Excelsior Stan Lee, Excelsior”!

Stan Lee died on November 12, 2018, and millions of Marvel fans are devastated. He is the god of Marvel and Cameos! He’s created most of the famous Marvel icons including Captain America, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and one of his most favorites, as well as mine, Spider-man! When he started, he was just a writer, and people would ask him what his job was, and he would always say,’’ I’m a writer”, and maybe sometimes people would ask, well, what do you write?, and then he would always say,” Kid novels”, and walk away, not knowing that he would soon be famous.

 

“I felt very sad and depressed because a legend had died, but hopefully Marvel can finish what Stan Lee started” said Connor Roberts, a long time lover. “ I don’t believe that many people will see it without Stan Lee, and now that gives Disney a chance to take over and make it a bit worse,” says theory-minded Evan Smith. But hopefully not, but Marvel is too Excelsior for Disney, hopefully I’m using that term right. And that was Stan Lee’s most famous quote, which the real definition means superior quality, but the way he uses it, Stan means and “onward and upward to greater glory" as he said in 2009 in late August. But one thing's for certain, never again will he be a in a real life cameo anymore. But, sources say that Marvel has over dozens of Cameo recordings of Stan Lee for upcoming movies, and hopefully they’re right, cause no other Avengers, Spider-man, or Guardians of the Galaxy movie won’t be the same without a great cameo.

 

Now, it’s time to say goodbye to Stan Lee, and the Cameo Legend Stan Lee, and the famous comic book writer Stan Lee, so, “Excelsior Stan Lee, Excelsior”!
